Flotation is a type of adsorption and bubble separation, based on the formation of pop-up impurities agglomerates with dispersed gas phase and their subsequent separation in the form of sludge.

Flotator is an open container, which consists of three main chambers:

  • reception of sewage and flotation chamber;
  • diversion of purified water chamber;
  • sludge removal chamber.

 

The flotator is made of stainless or carbon steel or with corrosion-resistant coating of a polymeric material. The flotator is ready to use with shut-off and control valves and a remote control.

 

The water in flotator is cleaned in four stages:

  • the formation of dissolved bubbles of air;
  • adsorption of air bubbles on the surface of impurities;
  • formation of flotation complex with further flotation;
  • flotation sludge removal.

 

The flotator provides local wastewater purification from the main types of pollution:

  • fats;
  • oils;
  • suspended solids;
  • petroleum products;
  • organic impurities;
  • surfactants and other contaminants.

 

Flotators are used for purification of:

  • wastewater of food, pulp and paper, petrochemical, chemical, oil and fat, textile, metallurgical industries, slaughtering shops, etc.;
  • stormwater of enterprises, petroleum storage facilities, etc.;
  • wastewater from washing cars, machines, parts, containers, etc.;
  • pre-treatment prior to biological water treatment systems.
