A dispersed-ozone flotation (DOF) separator was devised for a pilot study of tertiary wastewater treatment for re-use purposes. As a compact device combining coagulation, ozonation and flotation in an integrated unit, the DOF separator achieved a very high removal of SS, TOC, UV254 and colour, as well as effective inactivation of coliform and total bacteria within a short hydraulic retention time of 30 min. The finished water quality is comparable to or better than that by a conventional tertiary treatment process using coagulation, sedimentation, filtration and chlorine disinfection, and meets the quality standards for non-drinkable domestic reuse.
