Akvola Technologies is a water technology specialist that provides cost-effective and environmentally-friendly solutions based on Akvo-Float. As the German company explains, this is a proprietary flotation-filtration process used to clean hard-to-treat industrial wastewater containing high concentrations of oil (free, dispersed and emulsified) and suspended solids. The internationally patented hybrid process combines micro-flotation and filtration and is based on innovative ceramic flat sheet membranes. Both processes are arranged in a single tank and are said to completely eliminate oils, greases, lubricants and suspended solids from the water. As the developers point out, technologies such as evaporators or ultra-filtration often have cost-intensive operating problems due to the fluctuating quality of metalworking industry wastewater. The new separation technology is seen as a reliable and cost-efficient alternative to evaporators, ultra-filtration (UF) and external disposal.
Reliable and cost-effective cleaning of industrial wastewater
In the metalworking industry emulsions and wash waters are disposed of externally at high costs or are treated using technologies such as evaporators or ultra-filtration. The new Akvo-Float technology has been designed as a reliable and cost-effective alternative.
