DAF System Lab Testing

DAF System Lab Testing IrelandUsing lab scale treatability testing, Water Tecnik can determine the suitability of DAF as a process for treating of our client’s site specific water, wastewater or effluent. This testing process provides data for detailed project specification and accurate design of a full-scale system.

Water Tecnik provides laboratory treatability testing services to help clients find the best solution to their wastewater treatment needs. It allows our customers to see first-hand how their wastewater has reacted with a particular treatment process. It also provides peace of mind to our customers, providing the knowledge that the treatment process that they may be about to invest in, actually works.

Laboratory scale testing is a simple and low cost form of testing. Lab scale testing typically consists of one or more batch tests performed on small samples to get a “go or no go” determination of whether a particular process is worth further investigation for a given sample. A wide variety of processes can be tested by Water Tecnik engineers, including chemical pre-treatment requirements and the effectiveness of DAF on our client’s site specific wastewater stream.

With this information to hand our customers can confidently invest in a suitable and proven treatment method for their own site specific waste water or effluent.

There is a minimal charge issued for completing each test, which covers Water Tecnik’s costs during the trials. The trial charges are refunded in full if our client decides to progress with our proposal .

Please do not hesitate to get in contact with us, to discuss your requirements further.

Bench Scale Lab Testing – process steps

  • Sample collected from site specific wastewater stream to be treated
  • Raw effluent sample is analysed by an independent UKAS accredited lab
  • Analysis report of the raw untreated effluent is reviewed
  • Determination of chemical pre-treatment requirements
  • Completion of chemical trials and jar tests to gauge chemical dose rates. (If required)
  • Effluent sample is chemically pre-treated and then passed through our bench scale dissolved air floatation systems
  • Treated effluent sample analysed by an independent UKAS accredited lab
  • Analysis report of the treated effluent is reviewed
  • A treatability report is drafted, which details any chemical requirements and dose rates, along with a performance review. Before and after photos are provided as part of this report to illustrate any improvements obtained
  • A detailed project proposal will be drafted following the completion of a treatability report and issued to our client for review
  •  The project proposal will cover project costs and detail accurate running costs based on the findings gained from the trial
