KWI’s research team combines our 70 years’ expertise with state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics as a powerful tool to support the design and optimization of our line of products. In particular, we have been focusing this analytical tool on our solid-liquid separations products to study dimensional fluidics as part of our ongoing product innovation.
A comprehensive CFD analysis was carried out to address the design of our high rate DAF systems:
Inner floating mechanis
Flow pattern in the flotation tank
The length, height, baffle height and air inlet height of the DAF tank are chosen as optimization parameter.
Found optimized parameters to obtain both a good air distribution and flow distribution
DAF removal rate decreases as the DAF length decreases
DAF removal rate increases with the decrease of height
Removal rate of the DAF tank decreases as the baffle height decreases
DAF removal rate grows with the increase of the air inlet height
