Nanobubbles are proven to improve efforts to recover suspended ultrafine and sometimes coarse particles.


Long-lasting oxygenation capabilities disperse nanobubbles throughout an entire water body.


The process is completely natural, minimizing or even eliminating the need for added chemicals.

Key Markets for Nanobubbles

  • Mining
  • Water Treatment
  • Irrigation
  • Pool & Spa
  • Oil & Gas
  • Pharmaceutical / Biotech
  • Food & Beverage
  • Aquaculture
  • Land and Pond Restoration


Nanobubbles are microscopic (25-300 nanometers in diameter) bubbles with the power to transform operations that require large quantities of water. Nanobubbles are an energy-efficient method of transferring gas into a liquid, but that’s just the beginning. These tiny bubbles are being used around the world to oxygenize water, improve irrigation efficiency and effectiveness, assist in physically separating emulsified materials in water sources, and more. 

Nanobubbles are not buoyant. Instead, nanobubbles float through liquid randomly and hold their gas for weeks. The bubbles also repel one another, so they do not coalesce into larger bubbles. When the bubbles finally release their gas, they implode with a brief, intense energy that creates a beneficial reaction.

Nanobubbles Improve Mining Operations

Adding a nanobubble generator to insert oxygen or ozone into tailings basins reduces the need for added chemicals like cyanide or hydrogen peroxide. The use of nanobubble-assisted flotation can also increase mineral recoverability rates while using significantly less energy than traditional methods of solids retrieval.

  • Improve flotation separation
  • Increase mineral recovery
  • Decrease costs

A Better Way to Irrigate

Water is essential to healthy crops, and the quality of irrigation water matters. Nanobubble technology presents a natural, chemical-free method for introducing oxygen-rich water to plants when and where they need it most. Adding nanobubble oxygen to irrigation processes allows plants to absorb more nutrients and reduces pathogenic diseases. Stronger root systems. Healthier plants. Better yields. 

  • Improve nutrient absorption
  • Reduce pathogenic diseases
  • Decrease buildup in irrigation lines
