FlooSand™

flootech floosand technology

FlooSand™ G sand filtration process

  • Combined and separated air/water backwash capability.
  • Better washing effect than only water
  • Robust and durable steel structure
  • Filtering laterals fill the whole bottom of the basin enabling full coverage of the filtered area

FlooSand™ C sand filtration process

  • Compact structure taking little space.
  • Sand bed traps impurities and suspended solids from the incoming water.
  • A small amount of cleaned filtrate is used as washing water for the separately connected sand washer beside the sand filter unit.
  • Capacity of one unit is up to 40 m³/h.
  • External sand washing unit enables easy maintenance.

FlooSand™ P sand filtration process

  • Combined backwash minimizes shutdown time and water consumption.
  • Optimally designed nozzle plate ensures even flow throughout the whole sand bed.
  • Automated backwash reclassifies the sand filtration bed and removes any fines or suspended matter.
  • Sand filtration also protects other water treatment units such as reverse osmosis membranes and ion exchange resins.

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 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.
