OxyBull & Nanobubble
Aeration systems by bubble technology
Stimulating the root system
Enhances mineral uptake
Water purification and oxygen supply
The horticultural world is changing rapidly. Knowledge about all aspects of the profession is becoming more available by the day. Big improvements are sometimes found in small things, and nano- and micro-bubbles are a perfect example of this. Nanobubbles are so small that they do not travel to the surface but stay afloat in the water. A nanobubble can be 1,000 times smaller than a single grain of sand, and this provides a number of unique properties. One of these properties is the ability to remain suspended in water for long periods of time, without shrinking or floating to the surface. Microbubbles, on the other hand, work a little differently. These are slightly larger in size, which is why they prevent algae growth and organic pollution. This transition causes movement in the water, and that offers advantages. In this, their effect differs from that of nanobubbles.
Two types of aeration systems
Both types of bubble technology have many other properties that have proven to be of great value in a number of processes, including improving water quality. Not only does this provide a crop with water that is free of bacteria, but the water is also more oxygenated. This contributes to a more vital crop and a better root environment. Agrona has designed a separate system for both types of bubbles. Both systems are the most efficient in their class and can be effortlessly integrated into your cultivation environment.
Agrona's Nanobubble system is capable of solving big problems with something as small as a nanobubble. The system is plug-and-play and can be simply connected on site. To ensure an optimal oxygen supply, we recommend installing the Nanobubble system in the daily stock or clean water silo.
The OxyBull is an advanced aeration system that uses microbubble technology. Microbubbles are a fraction larger than nanobubbles, and this causes movement in the water storage system. These movements effectively suppress the growth of organic pollutants and algae. This system can also be monitored closely when connected to the Agrona oxygen meter.
At least 100% oxygen
Both the Nanobubble system and the OxyBull provide oxygen levels ranging from a minimum of 100% to a maximum of 300%, allowing roots to grow faster and more.
Mixing & circulating water
Stagnant water is detrimental to oxygen levels and accelerates the growth of algae and bacteria. Keeping the water moving prevents later problems.
Keeps drip line clean
Due to the fact that only clean water runs through the pipes, there is no more contamination. The aeration system prevents blockages and ensures a clean supply.
Biological way of crop protection
The Nanobubble system and the OxyBull purify the water and protect the crop in a biological way. You therefore do not need to use as many pesticides or other solvents.
Algae form quickly in water storage and take the oxygen and nutrition away from the crop. By breaking down the algae early and thus preventing it, the root environment improves.
Better performing crop
By supplying clean water and plenty of oxygen, you facilitate a more vital and stronger crop. The crop will therefore perform better.
The bubbles are so small that they remain floating in the water, even during transport to the crop through the pipes. You can actually see it as a storage of oxygen in the water. As a grower, you will achieve excellent results as a consequence. The oxygen ensures better plant growth by supporting plant development, reducing stress and indirectly preventing disease. Nanobubbles have a neutral floating capacity and can therefore remain in the water for weeks without rising to the surface. Even in warmer water, the bubbles are largely retained.
In recent years this aeration system for horticulture has been further developed. This has resulted in a product that introduces a lot of oxygen with a high homogeneous distribution and also has a long lifespan. This is due to the use of alternative materials and the application of special production techniques.

Numbers and experiences
- Microbubbles shrink in the water and disappear, this creates more movement in the water than nanobubbles.
- Nanobubbles remain stably floating in the water and therefore provide a higher oxygen ratio in the water than microbubbles.
