Bubble Sizes

  • An Ultrafine Nanobubble is defined as a bubble having a diameter of less than 200 nanometers—about as tiny as many viruses! By way of comparison, a human hair is 80,000-100,000 nanometers wide, and the wavelength of light is 400-700 nanometers wide.

  • On a comparative scale, a nanobubble is about 2500x smaller than a grain of sand.

Nanobubble's Stability

  • Have neutral buoyancy, so do not rise to the surface

  • Follow the principles of Brownian (random) motion.

  • Can remain in water for months.

  • When nanobubbles collapse in water, they pass their gas content to the surrounding liquid—delivering huge gas transfer efficiencies as the gas is not lost to the surface.

  • When stable in the water column, they have important effects on surfaces and pollutants they contact.


Nanobubble Surface Area

  • Increases gas surface area by over 400x

  • Increases gas / water contact allowing for greater exchange of gas into liquid

  • Decreased surface tension of water makes water more "wet" or "slippery"

  • Reduces energy needed for gas transfer

  • Reduces gas waste vs traditional technology

  • Reduces time to transfer gas, allows for a more responsive gas transfer solution
