CLARIFIER SYSTEM


CLARIFIER SYSTEM

Tube Settlers/ Lamella Settler

We offer Tube settlers and Clarifiers that are designed to handle turbidity and help remove settleable solids from water and waste water.

Tube Settlers –
With tube settlers, multiple shaped media are sloped at an angle of 60° and adjacent to one another, which together increase the settling surface area, lowering the total unit area compared to conventional methods. As a result, the particle settling depth is significantly smaller than that of a conventional clarifier, which reduces settling time and area.

Clarifiers –
These units are widely used for clarifying raw water and wastewater. They are designed to handle turbidity and to remove suspended solids. These units can offer discharge turbidity lower than 30 NTU.
The system has been designed to be constructed in a steel tank / concrete basin.
A unique rotor-impeller combination allows mixing and slurry recirculation to be controlled according to water characteristics.

The Area Of A Clarifier Vs A Lamella Settler


As mentioned in the introduction gravity settlers are sized on the basis of two parameters, upflow rate of the liquid and settling area, so under equal conditions, the effective area for both clarifiers and lamella settlers is the same. On a clarifier, the settling area is the tank surface and on lamella settlers, it is the total area of the inclined plates projected on a horizontal surface. This reduces the footprint of lamella settlers by about 90% as compared to clarifiers and consequently less land is required.

Advantages

– Continuous operation.
– Due to its small volume no need to allocate large storage when emptying.
– No drive nor mechanical parts.
– Filling and emptying time is short.
– Small floor area footprint.
– Modular design for future expansions

Disadvantages

– No buffer volume for flow fluctuations which may cause resuspension of solids.
– Many surfaces for accumulation of scale and deposits.
– No storage capacity for the settled sludge.
