ABASCO Floating curtain baffles are ideal for controlling flow and circulation in wastewater treating ponds, to eliminate dead zones, increase detention time, and improve treatment efficiency. Water baffles, including wastewater baffles and reservoir baffles, are used in industrial and municipal water treatment facilities and plants to improve water quality at the plant. Floating baffles and water baffles are designed to control the water at plants, so they’re constructed in durable fabric and designed with your specifications for treatment. Floating curtain baffles are constructed with heavy duty tension members at the top and bottom of the curtain and UV/chemical/acid/base resistant 30 oz Elvaloy coated fabric. Without the floating baffle curtains, facilities and plants have short circuits across the lagoon., but the addition of the water baffles the flow of water is controlled and redirected. Ultimately, ABASCO floating baffles saves time and money for your facility or plant.
Benefits of ABASCO Floating Baffles
Custom-designed wastewater baffles have specially
sized and placed windows that control flow and circulation
in wastewater treating ponds, to eliminate dead zones,
increase detention time, and improve treatment efficiency.
- Improves Treatment Efficiency
- Increases Detention Time
- Eliminates Dead Zones
- Stops Shortcircuiting
- Cost Effective design
- Custom Engineering
- Variety of Materials
- Top tension cable is 5/16-inch stainless-steel aircraft cable sealed in fabric.
- Bottom ballast is 3/8-inch galvanized
chain in sealed bottom pocket.
- End tension plate is double 3/16-inch
x 3-inch stainless-steel plate with 3/8-inch stainless-steel
- Flow-through windows have rounded
corners, dielectrically sealed and reinforced with
2-inch webbing. Window size is a minimum of 1 sq
ft per 30 gal/min.
- Baffle connections are double-thick
fabric, dielectrically sealed, with stainless-steel
grommets set in 2-inch-wide webbing.
- Flotation is rolled closed-cell polyfoam
with a minimum of 55 lb/cu ft buoyancy. Polyfoam
will not wick water or oil.
- Curtain fabric is 30-oz, reinforced, coated Elvaloy® material that resists wicking,
ultraviolet radiation and extreme temperatures.
Other fabrics available for special applications.
- Optional furling lines are used to lower and raise the baffle skirt.
