From Oloid to OLOID
Mathematics and physics are always involved in technology. So also with the OLOID.
We have summarised a number of considerations that will gradually outline how the shape of the Oloid was discovered and the geometric-physical properties of the Oloid, resulting in its remarkably low energy requirements in technical applications with our OLOID systems.
The OLOID is a device that can meet 2 functions simultaneously. It serves as a agitator or as aerators. This is defined by the submersion depth of the OLOID body into the water.
OLOID as agitator
OLOID as surface aerator

At the bridge by the floaters two holes for height adjustment of the OLOID are in place and another 5 holes are available on the gearbox. This allows 10 possible combinations of which 3 for technical reasons are not suitable for the operation. The 7 remaining positions allow a smooth transition from the agitator to agitator with aeration function. This means for the effect of the OLOID also a smooth transition from maximum circulation through good circulation and high oxygen transfer to lower. There are machines available in three sizes. They can be used as a agitator and / or as an aerator. The numbers stand for the length of OLOID body in millimetres.
