  • PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

    KORDON MIST AIR AQUARIUM AIRSTONES are the highest quality aerators available for aquarium and pond keeping. They are for both general and specialized use by the discriminating aquarist who wants premium quality, performance that excels all others, and lifetime service.

    Using a matrix of nearly perfect glass spheres which are resin-bonded together in a patented process to provide years of excellent service, these airstones offer new standards of performance and durability over traditional wood, fused-sand and porous-plastic airstones. While traditional airstones disintegrate or become unserviceable within a short time, MIST AIR AIRSTONES withstand deterioration and disintegration even after prolonged use. The glass bead construction is extremely durable. Usually the only part that will need replacing is the airstem. Any length of stiff plastic tubing 3/16" diameter can be used as a replacement.


    MIST AIR AIRSTONES are available in three porosities, with Coarse, Medium or Fine air bubbles. While all three grades are useful in fresh or saltwater aquaria, there are advantages to the three different grades besides just the bubble size. Each grade of airstone has a different back pressure which is superior dependent on usage. The Coarse MIST AIR has the least back pressure and requires the least air pressure to operate. Therefore, it will operate on the smallest air pumps with lowest pressure. The Coarse MIST AIR will work the best at greater depths were minimum back pressure is desired to provide air bubbles. The Medium MIST AIR is intermediate in back pressure and the Fine MIST AIR is greatest in back pressure. The Coarse MIST AIR requires the most air regulation when multiple airstones are supplied by the same air pump. The Fine MIST AIR requires the least regulation, and the Medium MIST AIR is in between.

    Kordon Coarse MIST AIR airstone is the rugged general purpose airstone with a number of advantages. It is the easiest of the three grades to clean. Its largest bubble size is the best to remove gases (such as carbon dioxide) from the water. It is the best airstone for air columns of undergravel filters because it lifts the most water.

    Kordon Medium MIST AIR airstone has the advantage of being the best compromise for size. The medium air bubbles are perferred by many aquarists for finer bubble size in fresh water.

    Kordon Fine MIST AIR airstone is the marine airstone par excellence. It provides a beneficial fog of minute air bubbles in salt water just like the natural environment in coral reef surge channels. It is very effective as a sparger airstone in protein skimmers and biological waste skimmers, outperforming the old style wooden airstones. In fresh water the Fine MIST AIR has the same bubble size as the Medium MIST AIR but a greater back pressure
