Xylem offers a highly-effective clarification system for removing contaminants such as turbidity, algae, color, iron/manganese, organics, and taste and odor compounds. By dissolving air under pressure into the water, millions of micro-bubbles are created. The micro-bubbles attach to flocs in the water and float it to the surface for removal by hydraulic means – thus minimizing chemicals required to achieve larger, heavier floc that will settle. Its performance is superior to conventional clarification in providing consistent water quality, producing consistently high sludge solids, and operating at high loading rates – results that can lower your total cost of operation.
