  • Prof. dr. habil. Viktor Georgijevch Ponomarev
Keywords: waste water, flotation


The paper analyzes the factors influencing water treatment by means of flotation. Author has come to a conclusion that one of the indices revealing flotation efficiency is surface tension of the water phase. The paper presents dependencies of this index on some parameters. In addition, the paper analyzes applicable constructions of flotators. Preference is given to impeller flotation due to its suitability to application.
