How to successfully use the simpler DAF system

09-02-2021
The EDUR LBU 404 C120L with 5.5kW motor multi-phase pump produces consistent fine micro bubbles perfect for the operation of a DAF tank.

Traditional Dissolved Air Flotation pumping systems have so many moving parts. The components include an air compressor, pressure vessel, centrifugal pump and of course the controller to get all three components to work harmoniously.

The disadvantages of such a complicated system are many. For one, the pressure vessel requires regular certification and records must be kept. The controller needs monitoring. The maintenance time and costs for the many components can be costly.

The technical staff at Hydro have a combined 80 years of experience in the pump industry. The knowledge of the team is second to none. They are proud to be the exclusive agents for the EDUR multi-phase DAF pump.

The EDUR LBU 404 C120L with 5.5kW motor multi-phase pump produces consistent fine micro bubbles perfect for the operation of a DAF tank.

The pump has the unique ability to draw atmospheric air into the suction line, shear it, mix it with the water being drawn from the “clean” end of the DAF tank, and saturate the air into the water by pressurising it.

The EDUR pump eliminates the need for a compressor, control system, conventional pump, air saturation vessel (and ongoing certifications). The pressure vessel can be removed or bypassed, or it can be incorporated into the new system.

Because of the simplicity of the system, operators will see an improvement in energy consumption (because they are not running compressors) and a vast improvement in maintenance costs. There is no pressure vessel to continually certify, no compressor to maintain, and no more complicated control system to operate – just “set and forget”.
