FLOTATION UNITS – DESIGN AND PRODUCTION
Flotation units are designed to carry out chemical-physical wastewater treatments. The air dissolved into the system provides for solid / liquid separation. The air injected into the water causes the formation of bubbles that come into contact with the suspended particles that rise to the surface, thus modifying the density of the materials.
X2 Solutions designs and manufactures flotation units for the following applications:
- Primary treatment (sewage pre-treatment)
- Grease and oil separation
- Thickening of primary sludge
- Secondary treatment (separation of purified waters from activated sludge) as an alternative to or in support of the sedimentation process.

DESCRIPTION AND OPERATING PRINCIPLE
Influent water coming from collection sites is stored in silos or underground tanks for accumulation. The chemical-physical flotation system must be fed at a constant flow rate. A static or dynamic screen must be incorporated to prevent solids exceeding 3 mm in size from hindering the flotation process. Depuration plants using flotation technology have the aim to remove 80% of fats and SST in order to reduce the organic load at the biological depuration plant headworks or at sewer discharge outlets.
The X-FL floater and the XCFL circular floater are models designed specifically for massive removal of pollutants, represented by small, medium and large solid particles. Each flotation unit we design, manufacture and supply guarantees high performance, allowing a drastic reduction in clarification time.
Our floaters are of the latest generation and can be customized according to the needs of each individual customer.
