By actively mixing potable water storage tanks and reservoirs, SolarBee mixers help ensure uniform distribution of disinfectant, eliminate thermal stratification and prevent stagnation and short-circuiting.

SolarBee® mixers, available in sizes from 400 gallons per minute (gpm) to 10,000 gpm, thoroughly mix water tanks of all sizes and are certified to meet NSF/ANSI Standard 61-G for materials in contact with drinking water. By actively mixing potable water storage tanks and reservoirs, SolarBee mixers help ensure uniform distribution of disinfectant, eliminate thermal stratification and prevent stagnation and short-circuiting. In addition, well-mixed tanks eliminate the need for energy–intensive deep-cycling or tank flushing.
SolarBee mixers provide a consistent disinfectant residual, allowing for disinfectant boosting as necessary to remain in the desired operating range. Each SolarBee potable mixer includes disinfectant injection capability compatible with SolarBee’s optional Chlorine Boost System for safe and effective disinfectant boosting from ground level.
Several SolarBee models offer collapsible frames, designed to install in less than a day through a hatch as small as 18 inches, without costly infrastructure changes and without taking the tank out of service.
Energy-efficient solar technology:
The solar-powered, floating mixer operates day and night with a permanent magnet, low-voltage motor and on-board battery system for continuous, energy-efficient water quality improvement. The unique SolarBee flow pattern ensures consistent dispersion of disinfectant throughout the tank volume, including constant replacement at the boundary layers (i.e., tank floor and sidewalls) where bacterial growth would otherwise use up the disinfectant.
SolarBee Inc., a division of Medora Environmental Inc., develops and installs solar-powered water circulation equipment to help solve water-quality problems in freshwater lakes, wastewater lagoons, storm-water ponds, estuaries, potable and recycled water storage tanks, and other reservoirs. The floating circulators create a near-laminar flow that can prevent and control blue-green algae in fresh water, reduce aeration time/expense and provide odor capping in wastewater lagoons, and completely mix any size potable water tanks to reduce nitrification, temperature stratification, stagnation and residual loss. The long-distance circulators can move up to 10,000 gallons per minute from depths of more than 100 feet and have been proven in hundreds of applications worldwide. http://www.solarbee.com
