The E-Flo-Dr. Baer electroflotation process operates without pressure. The gas bubbles required for flotation are generated by electrolysis using hazard-free low voltage. Gas bubble generation is also easily possible at higher wastewater temperatures of up to 80° C and with foam-forming wastewaters.

Compared to conventional dissolved air flotation plants, E-Flo-Dr. Baer electroflotation plants operate pressure-free with the aid of electrolysis. The gas bubbles required for flotation are generated by wear-free inert electrodes using hazard-free low voltage (<3 volts) and minimal power consumption (approx. 70 W/h). Gas bubble generation is also easily possible at higher wastewater temperatures of up to 80° C and with foam-forming wastewater. The uniform small bubble size leads to a very good separation effect. As a result, final filtration can usually be omitted.

The process is particularly suitable for wastewater containing oil and grease, hot and/or high surfactant content, as well as for emulsions and wastewater with a high salt content.

By combining ECSO and Envifloc® treatment chemicals with the EC online flocculator and the intelligent control system of EnviroChemie, optimum macroflocs are produced which can be safely separated in the flotation cell. The intelligent EC control system reduces the consumption of chemicals and the amount of flotation sludge and, depending on the industry, even makes the buffer tank superfluous, since "fresh" wastewater can be treated more efficiently in some cases.

The process is being implemented successfully in the automotive, food, cosmetics, plastics recycling, petrochemical and chemical industries, the pharmaceutical industry, the steel processing industry, the waste disposal industry, as well as at washing stations for tanker truck, vehicle and aircraft cleaning or in the field of vehicle repair.
