ABASCO Floating Curtain Baffles are ideal for increasing hydraulic retention time (HTR) by controlling flow and circulation in wastewater treating ponds to eliminate dead zones 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 by increasing the effective treatment area and time. Floating baffles and water lagoon baffles are designed to create bio-separators using serpentine hydraulic flow patterns, so they’re constructed in durable fabrics and designed to your applications for treatment which will significantly reduce Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS). 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 circuiting across the lagoon but the addition of the water baffles causes flow of water to be controlled and redirected. Ultimately, ABASCO floating baffles saves time and money treating the water at your facility or plant.
