Assess best practice design and management of DAF - with Platypus 4G DAF Test Accessories

DAF clarification process uses micro bubbles to attach and float flocculated and suspended particles, including slow settling colloids, algae, hydroxides, and turbidity generally - to a treatment plant's water surface for ultimate removal.

DAF Test Accessories are used in conjunction with standard Jar Testing - to assess and determine appropriate DAF process parameters including air saturation pressure, recycle rates, DAF treatability, float cohesion, appropriate polymers and appropriate flotation surface loading rates.

The above illustration depicts 4 x DAF Jars in place at a 4G Platypus Jar Tester, a distribution manifold with quarter turn isolating valves, a Saturator assembly and connection tubing.
