10 years ago, in 2007, specialists of EKOTON Industrial Group delivered the first Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) units of own production to the local wastewater treatment plant for meat processing facility. Since then, over 50 DAF-units have been installed on WWTPs all over the world – from Russia to Chile.
odeko-Elk, EKOTON Industrial Group, produces DAF-units since 2007. For construction development, professional computer programs were used to model the chamber shape, which allowed to create the best fluid flow for pollutions removal. This kind of equipment is used for suspended solids, fats and petroleum products removal as well as BOD and COD values reduction.
Based on feedback and operational data about EKOTON DAF-units received from our clients within 10 years, we can estimate the treatment efficiency for different industries:
|Industry||COD||BOD||Suspended solids||Fats||Petroleum products||Phosphorus||Sulfides||Iron||Chrome|
|Poultry and meat processing plants||55-65%||55-65%|
Today EKOTON Industrial Group offers to clients two main DAF-units’ types – horizontal and with lamella module.
Horizontal flotators have no inner devices, which makes them ideal solution for treating highly polluted wastewater.
DAF-unit with lamella module provides higher capacity and efficiency of wastewater treatment. This module consists of parallel installed corrugated boards made of fiberglass, stainless steel or polypropylene, which increase effective flotation surface. Smooth surface minimizes the risk of froth sticking.
Many clients’ requests led to compact DAF-2 unit design and production, which is used for pilot tests on WWTP. Those tests allow to evaluate specific efficiency of wastewater treatment as well as estimate the reagents costs.
Over the last 10 years EKOTON’s DAF-units earned recognition all over the world. You can see the gallery with our realizations below.
