ACTIFLO® CARB FlyerSource: Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies
To enhance the removal of Natural Organic Matter (NOM), taste and odor, pesticides, and trace pharmaceuticals, the ACTIFLO® CARB process combines the benefits of ballasted clarification with the adsorption capacities of powdered activated carbon (PAC). The PAC recirculation component, that is exclusive to the ACTIFLO® CARB process, enhances adsorption kinetics and maximizes contaminant removal rates. The ACTIFLO® CARB process can improve TOC removal rates by as much as 50% when compared to clarification alone. The purpose of this process is Natural Organic Matter (NOM) removal for disinfection by-products (THM/HAA5) and pesticides compliance.
Benefits of ACTIFLO® CARB
- Reduces PAC Demand While Maximizing the Removal of Natural Organic (NOM)
- Small Process Footprint
- Low Civil and Operational Cost
- Low Sludge Production Rates (< 1% of Forward Flow)
- PAC is Not Selective, Removes Multiple Contaminants Concurrently
