About Sionix Technology
Using a patented dissolved air flotation (DAF) technology packaged in a mobile shipping container, air bubbles between the size of 1 and 2 microns are injected and float organic contaminants to the surface where 99.95% are skimmed off. This compares to standard DAF units which historically have been limited to using bubble sizes of 50 microns or larger. The size of these bubbles are important because the smaller the bubble, the greater the surface tension and the greater the electrical charge. They can then hold together longer and elevate more organic contaminants to the surface for removal.
