Aero-Tube® is a dual-patented aeration hose that produces finer bubbles and exposes more water to air than any other competing technology available today, at significantly less expense.
When it comes to water aeration, the more water a system can expose to air, the more oxygen transfer can take place. Aero-Tube® has micro pores that create a vast amount of micro bubbles that maximize the surface area of the water, exposing more of it to the air where oxygen transfer takes place.
Aero-Tube®’s micro bubbles also take longer to rise in the water and stay intact in water longer. This gives the bubbles prolonged exposure to the water, providing an abundance of dissolved oxygen through the bubble-water interface, as opposed to breaking at the surface and releasing the oxygen into the atmosphere. The result? A much higher rate of oxygen transfer than conventional dissolved oxygen systems.
Swan’s Aero-Tube® technology is already being used worldwide with great success. Its oxygen transfer rate and energy efficiency coupled with affordability make it the ultimate aeration system, ideal for a variety of applications. These include aquaculture, aquaponics, hydroponics, wastewater treatment or any application requiring effective input of air in water.
“I have been in the fish hatchery business for 15 years and used silica air stones all the time. I have probably gone through over 3,000 air stones. A few years ago we tried the Swan aeration tubing and what a difference!! Not only did we save a lot of money in costly air stone replacement and cleaning, but we greatly increased the production capacity of our tanks and improved our water quality. We have used Swan aeration tubing in several different applications and found it to be much more efficient in oxygen transfer. So, by using the Swan aeration tubing, we enjoy greater efficiency, better water quality and higher production capacity for a lot less money.

Aeration devices using Aero-Tube® tubing supplied by Swan, are being used in a Cage culture environment to raise catfish. “Our studies have demonstrated that the device using this particular tubing as compared to traditional aeration devices, has provided outstanding circulation, aeration, and energy efficiency by using just a 1 horsepower blower.”Professor at Gadsden State College

Aeration devices using Aero-Tube® tubing supplied by Swan, are being used at Gadsden State College to raise and harvest freshwater shrimp. “We have a considerable amount of data to substantiate the following attributes of an aeration device, using the tubing supplied by Swan, versus the more traditional prop or propeller type of aerators. The attributes are as follows: 1) There is no sediment build up, as typically seen with the propeller type of device. The significance of not having this occur is a reduction of maintenance cleanup or the inoperability of the pond over time, 2) The tubing device provides an even flow of water, in a ‘figure 8’ motion, thus allowing for superior circulation and maintaining of a consistent level of dissolved oxygen throughout the entire pond, 3) The energy efficiency is superior to the traditional propeller type of devices. A 1 horsepower blower can circulate and aerate a .25-acre pond providing an 1100 – 1500 lb. shrimp harvest per pound.Professor at Gadsden State College
I have been making paddle wheel aerators for the catfish industry for over twenty years. The aerator we now manufacture using the aeration tubing by Swan is more efficient and less expensive to operate than the old-fashioned paddle wheel.Aerway Manufacturing Company
This product is making my job much easier. We have converted all of our systems in our fish farming operations, which includes trout, catfish and tilapia to this aeration tube.Colorado
I started using the aeration tubing in 1998. In 1999, I noticed my electric bill was less. My electric bill went from $2700 down to $450 monthly by changing to the Swan aeration tubing. Since that time, I have been helping cities, farmers and others cut their energy cost by switching them to the aeration tubing.Johnson Greenhouses
