Dissolved Gas Flotation Unit (DGF) (DAF)

The WSI R-75OG DGF is a rectangular body unit with two flotation zones. Each zone can separately treat different processes. The body is built and fabricated from 304L SS. Below is a list of several key benefits with this design. 

  • Stainless Steel Tank Design: The tank body, will be constructed from 3/16” stainless steel plate. The body is constructed with three independent cone bottom collection hoppers with the pneumatically operated valve connection point. All process chambers of the R-75OG DGF unit are fabricated into the system. This includes: Two DGF floatation zones, scum collection hoppers with a rail system, and effluent weir chamber. 
  • DGF Pump: The KTM-65S2 pump is a high flow micro-bubble generator made from 316 stainless steel. The KTM-65S2 is a highly precise pumping mechanism that generates microbubbles by utilizing two hydro-dynamic principles: negative pressure sucking both nitrogen and water simultaneously from each port; nitrogen effectively mixed into the water; which properly produces pressurized nitrogen-enriched discharge. This eliminates the need for a large saturation tank. 90% of the microbubbles formed are less than 10 µm in diameter. The R-75OG DGF uses a patented nitrogen system to reduce oxygen in the process. 
  • Saturation Tank: The saturation tank is constructed from 304L Schedule 10 pipe and is designed and fabricated in such a way that coarse bubbles from the nitrogen enriching process are collected and discharge into the DGF effluent chamber. This prevents coarse bubbles from disrupting the sludge blanket that is formed in the floatation zone. 
  • Micro Bubble Distribution: The Microbubbles generated from the KTM-65S2 pump system are dispersed into the DGF by six precisely located white water injectors. These injectors are constructed out of 1.5” schedule 10 304 stainless steel pipe. These pipes run the width of the DGF and have a proprietary grooved design opening for proper distribution and enhanced flocculation. Each injector has a diaphragm valve that will allow the operator to dial in the precise distribution of white water. 
  • Recycled Process water: The recycled process water used for the microbubble generation process comes from the same zone where the effluent weirs are connected. This ensures that the cleanest quality of process water is being recycled into the system. 
  • Surface Skimmer System: The skimmer system is comprised of two parallel lengths of ultraviolet stabilized glass reinforced Nylon 6/6 chain with stainless steel paddles and buna rubber wiper assemblies. The skimmer system is powered by a helical worm gear motor that is VFD controlled. This allows the operator to have precise control over the speed at which the paddle skims across the top layer of the DGF. This is important as to not disrupt the gentle nature of the sludge blanket that is formed in the floatation zone of the DGF. The paddle is the width of the DGF body and gently pushes the skimmed sludge up a stainless steel beach and into a collection hopper. The ends of the stainless steel paddles are supported by UHMW blocks which ride on internal rails. This allows the paddles to interface the sludge blanket at a consistent elevation along the length of the DGF and gently collect the thickened sludge, pushing it into the sludge hopper.

Dewatering Module

The dewatering skid scope includes engineering and equipment supply for a complete, operational skid-mounted 1.5-meter belt filter press. The press frame will be fabricated from steel square tube that provides the press maximum strength with a minimal deflection for optimum belt life. The skid is fabricated from structural I-Beam for ease of mobilization with tail roller trucks. A steel frame building with metal sheet siding and insulation is secured to the skid ensuring that the press and its ancillary components are completely enclosed and protected from the elements. Below is a bulleted break down of the scope of the supply. 

  • Skid Fabrication: Tail roller skid with bull bars 
  • Building Enclosure: Metal frame building, with insulation and heating. 
  • 1.5M belt press: 
    • Upflow feed box with paddle driven sludge distribution system, 
    • Extended gravity deck with sludge plows (chicanes) to corn roll the sludge and open free water to the belt for ease of draining 
    • Pressure section with dual drive motors (upper and lower) in VFD controlled torque share operation to eliminate belt looping and creasing while processing binding sludge 
    • Major Ancillary Equipment: To support the remote field dewatering operation the system includes:  
    • Influent sludge feed pump 
    • Sludge Flow Meter to closely control polymer dosing 
    • Polymer system
