Linne Industries receives patent for solar-powered water aeration system

By |  May 28, 2020 0 Comments

U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued a patent for Linne Industries’ protective screens as part of its the PondHawk solar-powered pond aeration system.

The patented protective screens simultaneously cover the back of PondHawk’s solar panel, integrate it into the pump and controller enclosure and protect the equipment from tampering. The screens also provide passive cooling to the solar panel.

“Linne Industries was issued the original patent for the PondHawk structure in 2016, and today, with our continued commitment to delivering the most durable, reliable and long-lasting solar water aeration system, our work has again been awarded patent protection,” said Sandra Burton, Linne Industries president and co-inventor.

The durable screens benefit PondHawk customers not only by preventing tampering but also by creating a protective barrier to the back of the solar panel. As a result, projectiles such as stones, golf balls and grounds equipment cannot harm the panel.

“Maintaining the aesthetically neutral qualities of PondHawk is always top of mind at Linne Industries,” Burton said. “We made the protective screens from the same powder-coated steel as the equipment enclosure to ensure virtually no change to the system’s aesthetic.”

Not all systems require the added protection, so the company said it is offering the new screens as an option for high-risk sites.
