Armor Ball™ AQUA 275

High performance wind resistant floating cover: Armor Ball Aqua 275

Armor Ball™ AQUA: water filled ball cover

Water filled shaded bird ballAWTT INC. Armor Balls™ AQUA cover systems offer a simple and maintenance free solution to reduce heat loss, evaporation, algae growth and  odors.

 

High surface area coverage is achieved by placing a sufficient amount of balls on the surface of the liquid. The balls arrange themselves to provide coverage of up to 91%. The result is a thermal insulation barrier which combines the insulation factor of the air held in each ball with the poor heat conductivity of plastic. While the air pockets between the balls are not sealed, they also contribute to this insulation system, which dramatically reduces heat loss and light transfer. 

 

Armor Ball cover: hollow plastic ballThe Armor Ball™ AQUA cover is constructed of polyethylene and is 100mm (4 inches) in diameter, with a weight ranging from 160 to 275g (depending on the application). The sturdy construction combined with the ballasting element inside the ball allow each element to float with about 30% to 50% of the ball submerge, making the cover wind resistant and preventing the balls from being blown out of the pond. Its sturdy construction ensure it is very durable, totally maintenance free, with no plugs or seals where the ballasting material could leak from (proprietary manufacturing techniques are used). Special HDPE formulation and ultraviolet stabilizers protect from the degrading effect of sunlight.

 

The Armor Balls™ AQUA barrier, contrary to standard covers, does not represent an obstacle to static, moving or dipping equipment. The balls can be easily pushed aside and the cover reforms itself as the basin and obstacles change configuration, as in a clarifier. In fact, the balls will keep up with liquid level, rising, lowering and restacking themselves as needed.

 

Armor Balls™ AQUA is also an effective wildlife deterrent. When entirely covered, the body of water becomes unattractive to waterfowl and other wildlife such as deer. They simply don't recognize it as water.  Compared to netting, Armor Balls are not sensitive to ice or snow damage and do not require any kind of support.
