CLARIFLO® Heavy Metal Extraction and Clarification Systems
Clariflo® is a complete-packaged industrial clarification system developed by EFS for extracting heavy metals, dissolved solids, and suspended solids from process waters. EFS pioneered the design and development of Clariflo® to provide a more affordable clarification system. With Clariflo®, industrial waters may be reused, dramatically reducing operation and maintenance costs.
EFS developed Clarifo® in responding to the needs of industry -- simply, Industry wanted a more affordable clarifier, requiring only minimal effort to operate, maintain and control. Clariflo® relies on enhanced physio-chemical sedimentation for removing salts, heavy metals and suspended solids from industrial process waters. Clariflo® allows industry to significantly extend the life of process water and thereby reduce operation and maintenance-related costs. With Clariflo®, heavy metals, instead of being discharged in soluble form in industrial wastewaters, are desirably precipitated as metal hydroxides, ultimately being disposed more amenably in solid form to the environment.
Clarifo® works on enhanced sedimentation from chemically induced pH adjustment across inclined settling surfaces. Using rugged plastic tube modules, periodic tank inspections and cleaning are easily performed by simply removing the modules. With Clariflo® systems, product quality is improved with greater product throughput. One of the main initiatives behind the development of Clariflo® was to transfer the bulk of maintenance responsibility to easily accessed outboard points on the Clariflo® system without interrupting the main process -- the result is an overall system that is operated and maintained more efficiently than conventional clarification systems.
Clariflo® comes packaged with all necessary equipment and is easy to erect, assemble and install. The systems are custom-fitted for your application and include on-site installation, startup, monitoring and follow-up. As needed, preliminary laboratory analyses and pilot trials are conducted by EFS to size systems and establish overall efficacy.
