Spanish term or phrase: flocular, floculos, bulba humeda
I am translating an estimate for the building of a water treatment project, and the above terms are included in the specifications. Text:
"Flocular los solidos suspendidos resultantes" a step in the process; "separar los floculos del agua" (another step in the process); and a spec as to reducing temperature: "contemperature de bulba humeda".

Any help is GREATLY appreciated!

Explanation:
As for the bulba húmeda (I believe that there could be some typos here)possibly refers to to the temperature as indicated by a submerged bulb, but this is a guess.
