Dissolved air flotation (DAF) is a water treatment process that removes suspended solids from fresh water, process water, or wastewater. Coagulant and flocculant chemicals can be added to the feed water to aggregate and join together the small solid particles to form larger flocs or bundles and improve solids removal. This training module describes how these chemicals work in the DAF process.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Define and describe "coagulation"
  • Define and describe "flocculation"
  • Describe the functions of dissolved air, pH control chemicals, coagulants and flocculants in DAF systems

Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is the term for an aqueous suspension of particles that are too small to settle out under the influence of gravity?
An aqueous suspension of particles that are too small to settle under the influence of gravity is called a colloidal suspension.

How are tiny fiber fines removed from suspension in a dissolved air flotation system?
Tiny fibers attach to small air bubbles and are carried to the surface of the DAF separation vessel.

What do flocculants do in a colloid?
Flocculants combine microflocs formed by coagulation into larger aggregates of flocs.

What do coagulants do in a colloid?
Coagulants neutralize the electrical surface charge on colloidal particles which allows them to combine to form microflocs.

If both chemicals are used, in what order should coagulant and flocculant chemicals be added to a suspension?
When coagulants and flocculants are used together, coagulants should be added to the suspension first.

Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Dissolved air flotation, or DAF, is a water treatment process that removes suspended solids from freshwater, processed water, or waste water. This separation is achieved by dissolving air into water under pressure and then releasing the air at atmospheric pressure in a floatation tank. The released air forms tiny bubbles which adhere to the suspended solids in the water causing the solids to float to the surface where they can be removed by a skimming mechanism. Coagulant and flocculant chemicals can be added to the feed water to aggregate and join together the small solid particles to form larger flocks or bundles and improve solids removal. This training module describes how these chemicals work in the DAF process.

Customer Q&A

Ask a Question

Sorry, we're missing some information

I would like to have several employees take multiple courses. How can I set that up?

We're in the process of making bulk course and multiple user purchases easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and contact us with details on who you'd like to assign courses to. We can set up each user's training plan and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

Can I get a free full-length preview of a course to see what this course covers?

While we do our best to offer details on course contents, we don't normally offer full-length previews. But please contact us with more details for a better understanding of what your organizaton needs and how we can help.

Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes. All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of each eLearning course.

How do I log in to take a course that I have already paid for?

You'll receive an email with login details moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course. Just click the login link and enter the user name and password provided.

Do you have courses in different languages?

Yes. While all of our courses are originally produced in English, we develop many courses in a growing number of languages, including Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tamil, and Thai. Available languages are normally displayed in the Course Details section on each course page.
