The accurate definition explains how the floating properties of sludge in a liquid cause it to swim to the surface of the liquid. Whereupon there is a perfect separation of the sludge from the clear liquid.

The clarification procedure is based on inserting minute gas bubbles into the liquid. These attach themselves to the sludge particles in the fruit-wine and drive them up to the surface of the liquid.

The sludge particles remain there and form themselves into a solid sludge cake. This sludgy cake mass can be continually skimmed off from the surface or you can drain off the clear liquid out through the residue drain at the bottom of the container.

Flotation clarification has for a long time been a customary process in sewage treatment. In recent years it has been increasingly applied in the clarification of fruit-wine. Today it is a well-proven method to enhance the quality of wine.
