A flotation plant is a fully automatic plant in a space-saving, compact design, operating according to the principle of pressure release.

ClearFox® Flotation

is used to separate suspended and swimming particles from the wastewater. The buoyancy of particles is increased artificially by accumulation of fine air bubbles.

In order to prevent the air bubbles on the water surface from bursting, which would cause the particles to sink, the air bubbles must be very small or certain chemicals must be added to the wastewater.

This way, oils, greases, swimming, suspended, sinking and dissolved contaminants are removed in order to protect pipelines and aggregates from clogging and extreme wear or in order to meet a certain prescribed outlet value for discharge into the public sewage system.

The floating sludge is removed from the water surface or runs out via a defined outlet.

Benefits of flotation technology

  • Highly efficient in CSB/BSB reduction (up to 85%)
  • Simple and rugged design from PE
  • Optimised for economic plug and play container solutions
  • Complete solutions together with mechanical pre-treatment
  • Standardised manufactured sizes
  • Compact design
  • Clog-free saturation system
  • Easy to service
Flotations Kläranlage Funktionszeichnung

The ClearFox flotation plant is fully automatic. A specific, clog-free helical rotor pump leads the water from the collection container (collection tank or skimming tank provided by the customer) to the reactor.

Aufbau Flotationsklaeranlage

The wastewater flows through a pH-regulation section where pH-fluctuations are compensated. Then, it flows tangentially continuous into the reactor. Additives are developed in a polymer preparation station in order to aid the flocculation and flotation process.

These are mixed fully automatically into the inflowing wastewater with flocculators. A multiphase pump saturates the outlet of the water continuously with air which is then recirulated into the reactor. The pressure release causes a flotation of the flotatable particles.

They will accumulate in the upper section of the reactor and are separated with a scraper and removed via a cone-shaped opening with compressed air. The clean water is removed in the centre and can be fed in indirectly.

The plant series is characterised by an extremely durable, streamlined design. The high success of the plant technology is justified by the easy and cost-efficient operation. It is used by many well-known European food manufacturers as well as in the Eastern European region.

A flotation plant can be adapted individually to the required area of application.

Flotation plants are especially suitable for wastewaters from operation and production processes such as:

  • Meat processing / Slaughterhouses
  • Dairy factory / Milk production
  • Wine / Juice production
  • Breweries
  • Canning factory
  • Commercial kitchen / Canteens
  • Restaurants
  • Cosmetics production
  • Food transport company
  • Chemical industry
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Petrochemical industry
  • Textile industry
  • Paper industry
  • Municipal wastewater cleaning
