Abstract The first full-scale application of dissolved air flotation for mixed liquor solids separation has been incorporated at a new 1.0 mgd Water Pollution Control Facility in Prince William County, Virginia. The results of a field investigation at this facility are reported herein. The data indicate that conventional design criteria do not fully characterize flotation performance, and a new parameter, developed from a theoretical relationship derived by Howe is offered as a rational design and operational guideline. Flotation performance is analyzed in terms of float detention time and process design. Cost-quality comparisons of mixed liquor solids separation by flotation and gravity sedimentation are presented.
