Dissolved air flotation systems are ideal for removing suspended solids and emulsified oils from industrial wastewater streams because they work at high flows and can process high concentrations of contaminants. As Richard Newman, Director of Sales for SUEZ’s Gulf Coast Services, points out in this Water Online Radio interview, the treatment system is ideal for refineries and pulp and paper plants where suspended solids are not water soluble but emulsified.
Newman also mentioned the benefits to refineries of SUEZ’s mobile unit. “Many refineries have these units in their plants. They’re not always necessarily working very well and this gives them an opportunity to take that unit out of service,” explains Newman. “We bring in the mobile unit; they can do the work on their permanent unit or replace it while we’re still providing them good wastewater treatment.”
