E-flocx is an accelerated electrocoagulation system which destabilises dissolved, colloidal , emulsified and other stable compounds in water and converts them into suspended particles. These suspended particles get removed on filtration and result in completely colourless, odourless and reusable water.
Eflocx has proven to be a very versatile process able to handle large variety of wastewaters of different volumes.
The process works on the principle of controlled dissolution of charged ions in water. These charged ions on contacting various pollutants like suspended solids, bacteria, organics, heavy metals etc. neutralize them and coagulate them.
These coagulated solids are subsequently filtered using suitable filtration equipment.
|E-Flocx System||Conventional System|
|Low space compared to conventional systems and less holding capacity required due to continuous treatment||Floor space required is significantly higher as holding capacity of tanks needs to be high due to batch treatment.|
|70-80% Less sludge production compared to conventional systems. Sludge produced is like a dry cake and very easy to handle.||Large quantities of wet sludge produced which is difficult to handle and additional space is required for sludge drying bed, which is not very effective|
|No additional chemicals required||Chemicals are required for coagulation and flocculation, chemical handling and storage requires manpower and additional space|
|Significant saving on civil work cost as civil work construction is minimal compared to conventional systems.||Civil work construction is very extensive due to construction of holding tanks, settling tanks, aeration tanks, secondary clarifiers, sludge drying beds etc.|
|Can easily handle shock loads of effluents by changing current density or flow rate||Shock loads of effluents will not be handled by conventional systems.|
|Modular in nature. Very convenient to scale up capacity with additional units.||Not modular in nature. Once installed, scaling up capacity is not possible.|
|Completely automated systems||Manual systems with little scope of automation requiring dedicated manpower|
