Effective Removal of Algae and Phosphorous at Industrial WWTP

Hydroflux Industrial has again demonstrated the effectiveness of the HyDAF HD Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) systems, and proven their experience with Algae removal, after the completion and successful operation of a tertiary treatment plant for a leading gourmet chicken processor in Australia.

In a recent article about the effects that droughts will have on the food industry (click here to read an electronic pdf version of the article), Hydroflux focussed our discussion on water security. Another increasing issue caused by drought is the stagnation of rivers, ponds, dams and streams promoting the growth of algae. Algae is also an issue in tertiary wastewater treatment ponds where residual nutrients can provide the ideal environment for excessive algal growth.

Hydroflux’s client needed a robust and reliable solution for their post biological treatment irrigation water. In order to secure the longevity of the plant and future expansion to the processing line they required a system that would provide algae removal, phosphorous (P) removal, and a significant reduction in E.coli. Hydroflux achieved this by providing an engineered system capable of achieving greater than 98% P removal and 99.9% E.coli removal.

“The results have been outstanding” said James Hall, Director of Sales for Hydroflux Industrial. “Once the process had been optimised, we were extremely pleased with the volume of algae being removed. The photos from site speak for themselves.

Hydroflux has seen a significant increase in interest in Algae removal lately due to the climatic conditions in Australia, and the HD range of Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) systems are an ideal algae removal devise that can operate from small to very large flowrates. The proven technology in Hydroflux’s DAF’s along with the exceptional results being obtained from sites such as above we expect to see many more DAF installations for Algae removal in Australia and New Zealand”.
