What designs are available?
The design of the DAF can be changed to suit specific needs for a given application. Bottom collectors are used in a DAF to remove any portion of the influent solids that settle rather than float. DAF’s can be constructed of a variety of materials including carbon steel or stainless steel.
What other auxiliary equipment is needed?
Generally, chemical pretreatment tanks with mixers and chemical metering pumps are required. In some cases feed or effluent pumps are needed as well. Depending on customer needs, dewatering equipment can also be provided. Auxiliary equipment can be provided by K-S for a complete system including controls and instrumentation.
What utilities are required?
Electric power is required to run the skimmer drive as well as the recycle pump. Compressed air is required for the air dissolving system.
How much operator attention and maintenance are required?
The DAF is essentially a hands-off machine that requires little operator attention. Maintenance usually involves lubrication of drives and bearings and occasional replacement of wear items.
How much do spare parts cost?
It is difficult to give a specific cost since there are many sizes and designs of DAF’s.
