AZ Game & Fish – Aeration

Meeting Time

Thursday 6PM

Project description

Fish hatcheries used by AZGFD use liquid oxygen to ensure the fish have sufficient oxygen; a costly process. AZGFD needs a more cost effective way to provide oxygen to the trout in the hatcheries. Liquid oxygen is expensive, and anyway to minimize the consumption of liquid oxygen would be beneficial in the long run. The problem for the engineering team is to devise an air pump system to provide oxygen to the fish without using liquid oxygen and to reduce liquid oxygen consumption to make the product cost effective.

The team plans to design a working air pump system that outputs oxygen powered by batteries and solar panels.
