Advantages with DAF:

  • appropriate process for removing difficult to settle light particles including algae, colloids and finely divided particulates
  • colder water applications assist the flotation process
  • less coagulant and shorter flocculation times are required relative to sedimentation
  • higher surface loadings than simple or solids contact mode sedimentation processes
  • robust process relatively tolerant of variable raw water and chemical pre-treatment conditions

Platypus DAF Test Accessories provide pilot-scale hardware to assess and identify best practice DAF treatment:

  • evaluation of DAF process suitability and appropriate design parameters for new plant
  • optimization of operational DAF plant subnatant quality outcomes
  • conjunctive compatibility with Platypus also other make Jar Tester dimensions permitting
  • means to assess ‘float’ cohesion and stability
  • means to assess saturated water ‘recycle’ rates
  • means to assess Saturator operating pressures
  • plant operation, cost management and QA procedures - essential tool
