Wiesbaden, Germany



This is an emerging water treatment technology for removal of suspended particles, including oil droplets, from source waters. It operates purely by fluid dynamics without the need for a physical barrier. This novel technology uses centrifugal force to create transverse flow patterns in a curved channel to separate a suspension of particles into two streams: one concentrated in particles, and the other devoid of particles. Unlike existing hydrocyclones and centrifuges, which require particles in the suspension to have a different density from the liquid medium, this technology can also address neutrally buoyant suspensions. Both exit streams are accessible to continuous flow post processing, which allows the operation of the system in either clarification or concentration mode. Added benefits include no moving parts, low energy, high scalability, minimal footprint, continuous-flow operation, high modularity in construction, and low cost in materials and TCO.
