The pre-engineered ActiflocTM system combines clarification and filtration in one prefabricated, fully automatic unit. The plant consistently delivers high-quality drinking water and is designed to treat surface water with high colour, high TOC or high turbidity - up to 1,000 NTU, with spikes up to 3,000 NTU. Engineered for flexibility and robustness, the system offers quick chemical optimization and instantaneous startup and shut-down. Especially suited for the following applications: • Highly turbidity water • High colour and/or high TOC • High algae levels • Cold water • Flashy waters with rapidly fluctuating raw water sources • Facilities with space restrictions that demand a small footprint • Plants that frequently start up and shut down, requiring quick optimization to reach steady-state

ded solids. The ballasted floc settle out very fast in the settling tank and are removed from the treated water. The sludge drawn from the settler is pumped through a set of hydrocyclones, where the microsand is separated from the sludge and returned to the Actiflo system for reuse. Water then passes through lamellar settling tubes and onto the filtration stage. The high content of microsand in the system stabilizes the process when the flow rate, turbidity or temperature fluctuates rapidly. Dentention time is very short making the response to changes in chemical dosage very rapid (10-15 minutes), allowing the process to reach a steady operational state in less than 20 minutes.

The ActiflocTM treatment process combines the ActifloTM clarification process and the Microfloc Mixed Media filter, which is supported by the new MultiblockTM underdrain. ActifloTM: A proven clarification technology, the Actiflo process uses a microsand ballast that functions as a seed, enhancing floc formation and settling. Raw water enters the coagulation tank, where chemical coagulant and efficient mixing are used to destabilize suspended solids and colloidal matter. Polymer and microsand are added in the injection tank. The treatment continues as the water flows to the maturation tank, where conditions are ideal for the formation of polymer „bridges“ between the microsand floc and destabilized suspen-

dia filtration chamber. The Mixed Media filtration technology uses progressively finer media from top to bottom and as such creates superior quality finished water. After the filtration, the flow is collected by the MultiblockTM underdrain, which allows filters to run at up to 30% higher flow rates, providing increased plant capacity. Even under extreme spike loading, the combination of the ActifloTM clarification and Mixed Media filtration contributes to resist breakthrough by Cryptosporidum and Giardia and provides a consistent high quality effluent.
