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