Follow this link "Dissolved Air Flotation Separator Design Parameters" for information on the accurate design and sizing of Dissolved Air Flotation Separators and Flotation Systems.
HydroFloTech flotation (DAF & IAF) systems are designed to accommodate flow rates as low as 5 and as high as 3,000 gallons per minute. The primary function of our flotation systems is to remove free and dispersed oils or emulsified oils, along with dispersed suspended solids, from wastewater or process water streams. This makes it possible for sensitive downstream equipment to perform as designed. A properly designed flotation (DAF) system will reduce the overall operating costs and improve overall system maintainability.
As a separation device, flotation systems exhibit extremely high solids capture ratios, and will yield the highest level of recovered solids under a wide range of flow conditions. Oil/grease and suspended solids removal rates of greater than 90% are normal. Hydro-Flo has some customer applications reporting 99.9% O&G and SS removal. Because of their outstanding performance and reliability, Hydro-Flo flotation systems are the preferred process for a wide range of industrial water and wastewater treatment problems.
The HydroFloat™ series of DAF is considered to be a "traditional" DAF design. However, Hydro-Flo has optimized all aspects of this design through years of research, development and experience in the field.
HydroFloTech FloatPac™ series of dissolved air flotation technology takes flotation system technology to a whole new level.
We achieve these results through the combination of Hydro-Flo's proprietary co-current / counter-current inclined plate technology with our state-of-the-art DAF system. This hybrid package generates greater removal efficiency than those that can be achieved in traditional DAF designs.
It also gives the user the option to operate the unit as a highly efficient clarifier for the removal of settleable suspended solids. If you are dealing with waste streams that sometimes settle and sometimes float, this is the system for you.
When we first introduced this little dynamo, we thought that it would function as a pilot unit for large scale treatment studies. What we didn't realize is that there are literally thousands of small scale applications world wide. Units have been sold to small production facilities throughout North America, Central and South America and units are planed for shipment to Asia and Europe. If you are a small scale producer with a difficult treatment issue, the HF-5 might just be the answer to your problem.
