technology and innovation
El ULTRADAF® is a water pre-treatment system based on flotation.
ACCIONA has developed ULTRADAF®, which has better hydraulic conditions compared to what currently exists, and an injection system based on installing a set of optimised nozzles, enabling operation at high speeds and with high performance in terms of eliminating polluting substances. ULTRADAF® is used for pre-treatment in several desalination plants, including at Ras Abu Fontas.
