A simple strategy is described to reduce future risks in scale-up investments by using similarity correlations based on the most important gravitational and inertial forces in a dissolved air flotation (DAF) chamber in a lab-scale model. This scale-up strategy allows for designing a pilot DAF based on the laboratory model, requiring relatively inexpensive material.
