There are a number of options available for the disinfection phase; including ultraviolet disinfection, chlorination and ozone treatment. Aerofloat is able to facilitate any preferred techniques.
Disinfection is a process that eliminates many or all pathogenic microorganisms that can cause adverse affects to human health, agriculture and the general environment. Disinfection is typically a final step in wastewater treatment to remove such organisms from the treated water before the effluent is released back into the ecosystems.
For wastewater reuse, the need for disinfection will depend on its intended uses. When reuse involves high-level risks of exposure for humans or livestock, that water will definitely require some sort of disinfection phase. Examples include irrigation or reuse for process water. Treated effluent being discharged to surface waters will also generally need disinfection.

Chlorination is a very strong oxidising agent and a comparatively effective and simplistic process for disinfection. Chlorination is used extensively in common household swimming pools and in biological sewage treatment plants and water treatment facilities.
Either liquid chlorine (sodium hypochlorite) or gaseous chlorine is dosed into the treated effluent or treated potable water, using dosing pumps or regulators/flowmeters to ensure the desired concentration.
Disinfection by chlorination is suitable for a wide range of flowrates. The size of dosing pump or gaseous chlorinator depends on the volume of water and the incoming effluent quality.
