flootech raw water treatment solution Flootech’s clarification process softens water, removes turbidity, algae, color, iron and metals. Ideal for removing suspended solids from raw water, if clarified water requires further polishing by filtering, residual solids are efficiently removed via granular media filtration systems, which use sand, anthracite and/or activated carbon. Solid particles are trapped in the media and, when exhausted, are flushed by backwashing with air and water.
flootech process water recycling solution Today’s requirements for decreased water consumption call for improved water management at mills. Flootech’s solutions born of significant pulp and paper industry experience respond solidly to that challenge.
flootech wastewater treatment solution Today, industrial plants are taking full responsibility for the way their process waters affect production and the environment. Fresh water taken from nature is cleaned, utilized and recycled carefully within the processes and, when returned to nature, that water must meet stringent standards. These targets can be achieved using FlooBed-based biological treatment solutions.
flootech biological treatment solution Biological treatment removes dissolved organic hydrocarbons from water. Flootech’s sophisticated, compact Floobed® Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) uses special, freely moving biofilm carriers, which suit high capacity operations, are particularly tolerant of variations in feed flow rate and quality, and give consistently high quality results.
flootech sludge handling solution When wastewater is treated either biologically or through physical/chemical methods, sludge is produced. The disposal method for the sludge and the associated costs can significantly affect the payback and economics of a wastewater treatment plant installation. Flootech has experience treating sludges from all types of municipal and industrial wastewater systems and is able to offer solids handling equipment for sludge thickening or dewatering.
flootech chemical handling solution Correct chemical storage and dosing is essential to the proper operation of industrial and municipal water and wastewater treatment plants. The correct selection of chemicals, chemical dose rate and mixing parameters is critical and has a direct impact on the availability, performance and service life of process equipment.
flootech parts and services solution Flootech is proud to supply complete processes and to provide the diverse knowledge and expertise required to ensure that the plant and processes operate reliably. We target at optimized process results and economical operational costs at the customer’s plant. Customer satisfaction is our first priority. A delivery from Flootech ensures close cooperation with the customer starting from the evaluation of the best technological solution to installation, process optimization, training and start-up as well as after sales services covering spare part support and maintenance.

flootech floodaf technology Dissolved Air Flotation (also known as microflotation) is a well-known method of particle separation. Microbubbles are created by dissolving air into water under pressure. When the air-saturated pressurized water is released, microbubbles are formed. Chemical, physical and electrical forces cause suspended solids and colloids to attach to one another and to air bubbles. These particle flocs then float to the water’s surface and are scraped off. Coagulation and / or flocculation chemicals are used to enhance the process.
