ACTIFLO® Softening

ACTIFLO® Softening removes hardness and alkalinity to improve water quality for municipalities and industries. It combines both clarification and softening processes to achieve optimal water treatment.

Designed to further enhance water quality, ACTIFLO® Softening combines in a single compact treatment unit both clarification and softening operations to reduce water alkalinity and hardness. At the same time, the process removes other water components such as silica, heavy metals, fluorides and phosphates as well as TSS (Total Suspended Solids) and organic matter.

Rapid and efficient, ACTIFLO® Softening produces very high quality water.

 

APPLICATIONS

ACTIFLO® Softening is an ideal solution for many industrial and municipal applications:
 

Municipal Applications:

  • Surface and groundwater softening for drinking water production


Industrial Applications:

  • Water pre-treatment to avoid potential membrane scaling
  • Water production for cooling tower make-up
  • Water recycling for cooling tower sidestream
  • Treatment of produced water in the Oil & Gas industry
  • SAGD (Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage) water treatment for reuse
  • Wastewater treatment of flue gas desulfurization and acid mine drainage
  • Wastewater reuse in the steel and metal industry
  • Phosphorus co-precipitation

BENEFITS

  • Very small footprint: ACTIFLO® Softening is up to 10 times smaller than conventional softening processes
  • High rise rate: Up to 120 m/h
  • Retrofit: Can be easily implemented in existing tanks
  • Enhanced chemical precipitation with Turbomix™ draft tube
  • Minimizes coagulant consumption due to solids precipitation with calcium carbonates
  • Sludge up to 8% dry solids; can be easily thickened and dewatered
  • Easy start-up: Within few minutes
  • Plant-wide automation: ACTIFLO® Softening can be fully automated and integrated into existing plants

ACTIFLO®软化工艺旨在进一步提高水质,将沉淀和软化操作结合在一个紧凑的处理单元中,以降低水的碱度和硬度。同时,该工艺去除了其他水成分,例如二氧化硅,重金属,氟化物和磷酸盐以及TSS(总悬浮固体)和有机物。

ACTIFLO®软化工艺快速有效,可产生高质量的水。

 

优点

  • 占地面积小:与传统软化工艺设备相比,面积仅为传统工艺的1/10
  • 高上升流速:最高可达120米/小时
  • 改造简便:可用于现有的反应池中
  • Turbomix导流筒,强化物化沉淀
  • 最大限度地减少由于碳酸钙引起的固体颗粒沉积而导致的混凝剂消耗
  • 污泥含固率高达8%,更易被浓缩和脱水
  • 启动简便:仅仅几分钟即可启动
  • 可实现全自动化操作,并融入到现有水厂系统中

 

效果

进水硬度 150 - 1,000 mg/l as CaCO3
上升流速 可达120米/小时
沉淀后出水 钙含量<35 mg / l
碳酸钙镁<50 mg / l
沉淀后出水的总悬浮固体 < 3 mg/l
沉淀后出水浊度 < 1 NTU
