Flotation technology is normally used for removal of undissolved impurities, fats, grease and oils from water or other fluids. Removal takes place by using tiny air bubbles that are attached to the impurities and take these impurities up to the surface and keep it floating. By using a rotating scraper the floating impurities are removed. Flotation is also used to remove impurities that are catched in flocks formed via coagulation / flocculation.

The small size flotation systems (up to 5 m3/h) can easily be containerized. Some examples of containerized flotation systems are shown below. 

Containerized flotation system with side entry opening in container 

For this system the construction of the container is modified significantly. The side of the container is opened to be able to enter the container and to inspect the working of the flotation.

  • Flotation - Containerized flotation system with long side open entry - 2
  • Flotation - Containerized flotation system with long side open entry - 3
  • Flotation - Containerized flotation system with long side open entry - 4
  • Flotation - Containerized flotation system with long side open entry - 5

Containerized flotation system with pipe flocculator 

This flotation system is made for chemical waste water treatment. For the coagulation and flocculant dosing a pipe flocculator is realized. The floor is made out of GRP and in that way chemical proof.

  • Flotation - Containerized flotation including pipe flocculator - 2
  • Flotation - Containerized flotation including pipe flocculator - 3
  • Flotation - Containerized flotation including pipe flocculator - 4
  • Flotation - Containerized flotation including pipe flocculator - 5

Containerized flotation system with online measurement of effluent wastewater 

A flotation system in container with a separate chemical storage facility. Floor of container is also made out of GRP to make it chemically resistant.
