NEEP ShallowTray®
Low Profile Air Strippers

The NEEP ShallowTray®, invented in 1988, was the first low profile air stripper offered to the marketplace. Since then, over 4,000 units have been installed worldwide. The ShallowTray is capable of stripping many different volatile organic contaminants (view list). Over 10,000 analytical tests have been performed on the influent and effluent samples to confirm effective treatment results.

The ShallowTray product line offers a wide variety of size options ranging from one tray to six trays capable of handling a flow rate from 0.5 GPM to 1300 GPM.  Typically, the air stripper is used as a post-treatment process, but could be used as a stand-alone unit if the influent water is free from oil, solids and surfactants. The ShallowTray was designed to be easily maintained and resist fouling. The air strippers are available in molded polyethylene (for the 1300-P and 2300-P series only) or various grades of stainless steel for all models.

The ShallowTray Modeler, a proprietary software program, is used to accurately size the air stripper to your specific application. With this modeler, we can guarantee performance of the air stripper under the conditions specified. No other manufacturer will do this.

Advantages of the NEEP ShallowTray Low Profile Air Stripper:

  • Discreet size designed for smaller places in-doors or outdoors
  • In-place cleaning utilizes cleaning ports with supplied washer wand
  • No removable trays, which require more handling and maintenance time, could create air leaks causing inefficient stripping, and require more consumable parts, such as tray and cover seals.
  • ShallowTray can be operated from 100% hydraulic capacity down to 2% compared to only 40% of packed tower air strippers, which creates more efficient air stripping capabilities.
  • No packing material or diffusers to replace and no additional costs associated with Granular Activated Carbon (GAC), making NEEP ShallowTray a more cost-effective and greener solution.
  • Packed tower air strippers require a lot of space, can be placed only outdoors due to size constraints, and require regular total replacement of costly packing media.

Polyethylene cylindrical air strippers are available in the 1300 series (up to 4 trays) and 2300 series (up to 5 trays).
