As the following table shows, SAF™ technology has proven itself in the food, dairy and animal products industries for removing suspended solids from screened raw wastewater, with thickening of the recovered solids. Its application can be extended to any industry seeking to improve its solids recovery or water reclamation through a physical/chemical flotation process that offers a small footprint, low power consumption, reduced or eliminated chemical conditioning costs (i.e., coagulant/polymer demand), improved system reliability, and superior recovered solids handling characteristics.

Standard system features include an influent flow meter, dual compartment conditioning tank, coagulant metering pump, polymer activation system, Suspended Air® Emulsion Generator, ClearFloater™ Flotation Separator, dewatering conveyor, and process control panel. A pH sensor/controller and acid/base metering pumps can be supplied as an option.

How Did It All Begin?

The first applications of SAF™ were in the food processing industry because the company was located in California’s agricultural Central Valley and there was a need for treating wastewater from a variety of food processors. Since then installations have expanded to other industries that formerly relied on the traditional DAF approach. The Suspended Air® Flotation Process can be and is applied in any application where physical/chemical separation via flotation is a viable alternative.
