Prosject started to test the clarity protein skimmer in a recycling system for smolt production

In Cooperation with RedOx AS, Clarity WTS has started a project to test its protein skimmer in a recycling system for smolt prodution at Nofima Centre for Recirculation in Aquaculture at Sunndalsora in Norway. The development so far is promising.

In recycling system for smolt production based on microfilters and biofilters, it is often difficult to remove the last remains of organic matter, as well as breakdowns from the biofilter (TAN, Nitrite and Nitrate). As the Clarity has proven to be efficient in solving such problems within other applications, the company decided to test its effectiveness in a smolt facility.

Foam formation is usually hard to obtain in water where feeds with high fat content are used. Adding Ozon will usually solve this problem, and a partnership with ozon specialists RedOx was therefore established. A CL50 with an ozon injection system was installed at NCRA, and the testing started in February.

The develpoment so far is very promising. Foam formation is very good, and the water has become clearer. Samples are taken continously for chemical analysis. Final results are to be presented in June of 2011.
