What Is VoDCa?
VoDCa’s patented, CFD-optimised design, comprising a tangential inlet and cylindrical axial outlet connected by a disc shaped chamber, imparts and conserves angular momentum of fluid through the process. It creates a sufficient pressure drop to produce cavities/ micro-bubbles which are collapsed in a controlled manner downstream of the system.
Value Features of VoDCa
Market Applications of VoDCa
Industrial Waste Water treatment is highly complex and no single solution can fit all the use cases. Advanced oxidation solutions such as cavitation are useful in instances where conventional technologies are not suitable. Also there exists a hidden opportunity wherein the extent of process intensification brought about by the OH radicals can be so significant that it can be a very attractive commercial proposition and thus should be pursued for its investigation. With its maintenance free and robust retrofit , VoDCA maximises the generation of OH radicals without addition of chemicals which in turn maximises the potential of process intensification in Industrial Waste Water Treatment Plants.
Water De-Scaling In Cooling Towers
VoDCa can also be used for Water Descaling from Cooling Towers. At the moment this product is still being developed , however trials can be offered under an agreement.
Reaction Intensification In Multiphase Systems
VoDCa can also be used for intensifying multiphase reactions (gas-liquid, liquid-liquid). However such specific developments using VoDCa are undertaken on a project basis.
