How the Dissolved Air Flotation Optimization Process Works – Horseshoe Chamber Blog
This video shows how enhancement of dissolved-air flotation functions.
DAF DAF is made up of polypropylene. This material is extremely light yet has a very high quality of corrosion as well as chemical resistance. DAF is able to withstand extreme pH levels, saltwater, extreme temperatures and high solids dissolution. The DAF is UV stable.
One key component of a DAF is the sophisticated pipe flocculator that gives chemicals more time to integrate into the stream , and also breaks the emulsion that is formed by the water.
The dissolving air generator pump is also central to helping to support a DAF function. This pump dissolves air into the water. The bubbles of air then adhere to the particles that are discarded and float to the surface. For particles that are too big to flotation sink to discharge cones.
The floating waste is removed using a rake, while all the other waste is taken in cones. The sludge then exits via the sludge pump. It will take it to a tank for storage.
Once the waste has been taken out, the water is ready to be released from the DAF.
