Algae removal poses one serious challenge for any solids separation process. Traditionally, most solids separation processes are being done by separation that is dependent on the density difference between the water and the particles. Since algae are generally small and have low density difference from the water, gravity separation is relatively less efficient when considering algae separation process. Therefore, algae removal is typically being done by using high velocity centrifuges or by Dissolved Air flotation (DAF). However, these processes are expensive and consume large amount of energy.
Due to the Natica’s unique structure, it can remove a wide range of suspended solids as small as 2 microns from water with dirt load of up to 4000 PPM of TSS.
