Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) is a mechanical process using ultra fine air bubbles to separate somewhat neutral or positively buoyant contaminants from water. These contaminants form nuclei on which microscopic air bubbles coalesce. The air bubbles add buoyancy to the contaminants, causing them to float to the surface.
Hydro Quip’s mission is providing practical, economical and technologically sound solutions for the pretreatment of industrial wastewater and recovery of marketable byproducts.
We use a patented air dissolving next generation technology in Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF). Using sound thermodynamic and fluids mechanics engineering principles, this technology continues to be the basis of the most advanced and efficient DAF products on the market today.
Our principles are simple. First, we create the finest, most effective bubbles for the removal of organic contaminants from industrial wastewater. Then, we introduce them properly to the wastewater stream to maximize the natural attraction of the bubbles to the contaminants.
Finally, we utilize chemical assistants such as coagulants or flocculants only when necessary; and only then for the purpose of precipitating and removing dissolved, emulsified, and colloidal contaminants. Our main contribution has been to eliminate the use of polymers and other chemical assistants that compensate for mechanical deficiencies in DAF equipment design and operation. Hydro Quip’s wastewater pretreatment equipment helps our customers save money by reducing TSS, BOD, and FOG discharge levels, therefore reducing surcharges, increasing by-product recovery, reducing loads on lagoons and secondary treatment facilities, and preventing costly expansions of secondary treatment facilities.
