Actiflo® is a high-rate and compact water clarification process in which raw water is flocculated with microsand and polymer in a Turbomix™ draft tube reactor. The microsand enhances the formation of robust flocs and acts as ballast, significantly increasing their settling velocities. The unique characteristics of the resulting microsand ballasted flocs allow for clarifier designs with very short hydraulic residence times, high rise rates and extremely compact system footprints that are up to 50 times smaller than other clarification processes of similar capacity.
Actiflo® applies to surface, ground and karstic water for the production of the highest settled water quality. It is ideally suited for the treatment of:
Thanks to the use of microsand, Actiflo® achieves better treatment performance than all existing clarification processes on the market, displaying consistent and up to > 99% removal efficiencies of:
Actiflo® is particularly efficient in treating algal bloom and hence reducing taste & odor that are associated with algae. It can also be used for the recovery and recycle of filter backwash water for the purpose of reducing water losses and associated operating costs while preserving water resources.
Actiflo® can be used in all municipal wastewater treatment applications:
Actiflo® is ideally suited for industrial water and wastewater applications. It has reduced costs, increased operating efficiency and improved system reliability for customers in all industrial market segments:
Actiflo® is an ideal solution for:
Process water production:
Reuse and recycling:
Stormwater run-off treatment:
