Municipal and Industrial Water Baffles
The Water Baffle is used in industrial and municipal waste water treatment process plants to control and improve water quality in a treatment plant. Typically constructed from impermeable PVC, these barriers have worked to improve BOD, lower TSS (total suspended solids), and lower thermal control exchange in water treatment plants.
Water control baffles are designed with the fabric, dimensions, and specifications necessary to extend treatment times and improve overall water quality. Additional products such as Lagoon Liners and Floating Ponds covers are also available to complete your wastewater management project.
Water Treatment Before and After
Water Circulation Prior to Baffle Treatment:
The image to the right is an example of treatment ponds and lagoons with ineffective dead water space, as the flow short circuits across the treatment lagoons and exits.
After Water Control Baffle Placement:
By simply placing our engineered baffle in a treatment pond, flows can be can be redirected and controlled across the entire pond area. This results in better BOD and TSS levels, ensuring that plants stay within their permit levels to avoid costly shutdowns. Well controlled water flow can be extremely useful in saving you both time and money.
