  1. 1. Effects of Flow Structure on Particle Separation in Dissolved Air Flotation

    Author : Måns Lundh; Institutioner vid LTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; plasma; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp; Gases; fluid dynamics; plasmas; Gaser; fluiddynamik; Teknik; Technological sciences; modelling; retention time distribution; acoustic doppler velocimeter; flow structure; separation; water treatment; wastewater treatment;

    Abstract : Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) is a separation process in water and wastewater treatment. The removal function is based on reducing the density of the particle by producing aggregates of the particles and added micro-bubbles of air, thus lifting the aggregates to the water surface, where they can be removed as sludge.
