Livewell Oxygen Generators
Livewell oxygen generators are electrical devices using D/C battery power to oxygenate water in livewells and bait tanks and to keep bait and tournament bass alive in boat livewells. Oxygenators produce oxygen by electrolysis of water, Aqua Innovations ™. FishO2 ™ oxygen generators are also electrically powered. They filter out, separate oxygen and nitrogen ambient air via pressure swing absorption (PSA); O2 generators dump the nitrogen and deliver oxygen-rich 93% oxygen gas when new.
Oxygenators and oxygen generators both are capable of producing oxygen-rich or oxygen-enriched environments (>24% Oxygen – 100% Oxygen) inside a boat livewell or bait tank. Oxygen fire safety rules are extremely important and must be addressed and practiced. Oxygen generators are not aerators and are not risk free. Oxygen is not air, air is not oxygen.
Federal, State and private fish hatcheries and professional live fish transporters do not use oxygen generators to oxygenate live haul live fish transport water for many reasons.
Electrolysis type livewell oxygen generators are primarily used by tournament bass fishermen and sold as OEM by many bass boat salesmen.
