Floating Baffle Curtains (also called Water Baffles) are typically made from either Elvaloy, PVC, or XR-5 (or equivalent) material. HDPE water baffles are also available. Floating baffle curtains are designed to help increase settling time used in lagoons to help improve Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and lower Total Suspended Solids (TSS) levels. Lowering these levels can help keep readings within permitted limits, avoiding troublesome situations. See: Water Baffle Specifications.
When installed properly, floating baffle curtain results better quality and cleaner water exiting the end of the baffle system.
