The article offers information on the parameters of dissolved air flotation (DAF) designs for wastewater aeration. It discusses the role of hydraulic loading rates and surface overflow rates, both of which are derived from mathematical functions describing the competing velocities within a DAF vessel based on water vector and velocity. It presents the process of efficient DAF aeration systems.
