The dissolved air flotation process experiences process stability problems that are attributed to a poor understanding of the fundamental mechanisms. A detailed review of the literature revealed that the mechanisms of flotation are fairly well understood in mineral flotation application but that the transfer of knowledge to water treatment application is poor, particularly regarding the differences between particle and floc flotation.
