Floating Baffle Curtains

Floating Baffle CurtainsABASCO 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.
