Suspended Air® Flotation

Heron Innovators, Inc.

Heron Innovators, Inc. manufactures Suspended Air® Flotation (SAF®) water treatment systems. SAF® is flotation without dissolved air. Performance is not limited by changing conditions (e.g. gas solubility, pressure, temperature, etc.) and the physics that constrain other flotation and clarification methods. As Heron customers say,
"It just always works."

SAF® applications:

  • Algae and Silt Removal
  • Biosolids Removal & Thickening
  • Enhanced Clarification
  • Filtrate Clarification
  • Oil/Water Separation
  • Primary/Secondary Treatment
  • Surface Water Treatment
  • Wastewater Reclamation

  • SAF® Generator

    The SAF® Generator produces microbubble froth independently of the process stream. These bubbles resist coalescing for significantly higher surface area and lifespan. Due to surface tension advantage and electrostatic affinity, the microbubbles attract, attach, and encapsulate the particles.

    SAF® Generator
  • ClearFloater

    SAF® systems do not require any additional air/gas to be injected into the flotation cell. Hydraulic and solids loading capacities are increased with SAF® due to rapid rise rates and a very robust float. Less surface area is needed for a smaller physical footprint. Heron offers stainless steel flotation cells for applications up to 11 MGD (42,000 M3/D).

  • ClearMixer™

    SAF® microbubble froth is injected and stirred into the influent stream prior to entering the flotation cell. Most of the microbubble to particle reaction takes place in this mixer.

  • Skid Mounted Systems

    Heron Innovators offers custom designed systems that are plumbed, wired, and tested with the flotation and ancillary equipment all on one single skid. This plug-and-play design minimizes installation time and costs normally associated with field integration of pumps, pH control, chemical feed, and other associated equipment. Commissioning and start-up are a matter of hours instead of days. Up to 4 MGD.
