Flotation

Flotation is a century-old water treatment process in which gas is introduced to a pressurized liquid, generating a buoyant force and resulting in flotation of suspended matter such as fats, oils, greases and suspended solids. Little technical advancement has been made to the way in which gas is introduced to the liquid, and many facilities still use technology that is decades old. Moleaer's advanced gas-to-liquid nanobubble injection technology delivers a high volume of nanobubbles that greatly improves the flotation process. An exponential increase in surface area coupled with the strong negative charge of the nanobubbles brings new benefits to the flotation process that traditional aeration methods simply cannot achieve. These unique properties enable flotation technologies to be more efficient, typically consuming only 10%-to-20% of the energy consumption of conventional methods, and help ensure compliance with environmental regulations.
