Overview of ZEPHYR® Air Flotation System

The ZEPHYR® Induced Air Flotation System is engineered to perform better in separating oils, greases, and other floatable solids from water. Boasting stainless-steel construction, it is designed for durability and long-term resistance to corrosion and chemicals. The maintenance requirements are minimized thanks to its solid shaft and patented sealed-bearing design. The ZEPHYR system’s unique technology produces fine bubbles that enhance flotation, ensuring efficient phase separation with minimal turbulence. This state-of-the-art system is adaptable to various industries, serving clients’ needs across multiple sectors with a commitment to environmental stewardship and operational efficiency.

ZEPHYR Air Flotation Features

The ZEPHYR Induced Air Flotation System incorporates cutting-edge operational mechanics that set it apart in the industry. Its exceptional air dispersion capabilities result from a meticulously designed diffuser disc that maximizes contact between air and water, leading to highly effective solids separation. It offers customizable control options to adjust airflow and treatment levels according to specific process requirements. These advanced features underscore Newterra’s commitment to providing adaptable and precise solutions to its clients’ unique water treatment challenges.

This induced-air flotation system has an array of features, including:

  • Stainless-steel construction
  • Solid shaft and a patented sealed-bearing design
  • Standardized components
  • Easy disassembly for efficient cleaning

ZEPHYR Air Flotation Benefits

The ZEPHYR system stands out in the water treatment industry as a key solution for effectively separating oils, greases, and solids from water. Its value extends beyond its technical capabilities, substantially benefiting operational processes in various industries. When integrating the ZEPHYR system into their wastewater treatment protocol, clients can expect to experience a myriad of advantages:

  • Improved Water Quality
  • Operational Efficiency
  • Enhanced Environmental Compliance
  • Customizable Systems
  • Long-Term Durability
  • Ease of Maintenance
  • Cost Savings

How the ZEPHYR Works

The ZEPHYR is mounted vertically in a tank with the motor above the water and the diffuser disc below. Each unit’s diffuser disc incorporates fine holes near its perimeter to diffuse ultra-fine bubbles into the liquid. The motor spins the diffuser disc, creating a low-pressure zone at the disc’s diffuser ports, drawing air or gas from above the liquid’s surface.

That air or gas proceeds through the draft tube, into the disc, and out of the submerged diffuser ports. The spinning disc shears it into microscopic air bubbles from 10-100 microns in diameter. These air bubbles adhere to minute solids such as oil and grease and slowly rise to the surface, bringing the solids with them.

Extensive Applications

ZEPHYR installations are found in the petrochemical industry, pulp and paper mills, food-processing facilities, and municipal wastewater treatment. Our clients use the Zephyr Induced Air Flotation System for a variety of tasks, including:

  • Phase separation
  • Flotation with minimal mixing and turbulence
  • Product removal, recovery, and disposal
  • Gas injection
