Centrifugal Solids Separation by AquaHD

Israeli start-up AquaHD, working with the Terralab incubator, one of Israel’s leading cleantech investors, has developed a suspended solids removal technology based on harnessing drag and centrifugal forces in a method “not done before.”

The premise is similar to a hydrocyclone, where water coming into the chamber, which has a “unique” structure, is spun to create a centrifugal force. Particles in the water are subjected to forces of 6-7g, and are pushed to the outside structure within the unit forming flocs, before being caught in certain areas...
