Drum Thickener PRS: reliable thickening and dewatering of pulps. The performance of the gravity drum thickener is based on 50 years of pulp dewatering experience. The Drum Thickener PRS is a simple, cost efficient, and reliable filter for dewatering stock and broke (virgin and recycled fibers) in a consistency range of 0.5–5.0%.

White paper: Debottlenecking of Thickeners in a Changing Environment 2 In assessing the decision to modernize, we consider the elements of an upgrade and the advances in thickening technology that allow operators to meet new challenges. Finally, we will discuss the process of modernizing a thickener so as to achieve the client’s stated outcomes.
The Difference Between a Clarifier and a Thickener is subtle as they will visually look the same. Fundamentally, thickeners and clarifiers are both used to settle solids which results in the separation of liquids and solids. Thickeners are used to concentrate solids, while clarifiers are used to purify liquids. A thickener will give you a high density underflow while a clarifier will not.

The gravity strainer 4000™ series is used to filter process whitewater that contains relatively high levels of fiber. The M-clean cleaning system is a modular cleaning system that uses high-pressure water in combination with an effective evacuation and air knife system to remove contaminants. green space maintenance, as an all purpose
Since 1989, Sepratech has offered a mobile LAMELLA ® Gravity Settler* that is a pre-assembled, modular, that has a high rate inclined plate settler using a counter-current flow principle for effective solids removal. Call Sepratech to schedule an installation of this mobile unit, as well as maintenance.
Engineering Aspects in Solid-Liquid Separation. 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.
Cleaning ability is dependent upon many factors: >belt travel rate >temperature of the liquid >water pressure >thickness of material >water volume >density/adhesion of material >angle of spray impact >spray dispersion area >Surface finish >distance to cleaning surface >Rotating solid stream spray over a moving fabric/media allows
Thickening of sludge increases its solids content and reduces the volume of free water thereby minimizing the unit load on downstream processes such as digestion and dewatering. The most commonly used thickening processes include gravity thickening, dissolved air flotation, and rotary drum thickening.
The PLA SmartDiver is one example. This instrument is a ruggedised mud diver that provides measurement of mud levels, settling zones and overflow clarity in thickeners, clarifiers, washers and decanters. Tank profiling (suspended solids vs depth) is also provided, as it is specific gravity profiling and bed level measurement.

CHAPTER 3 SLUDGE THICKENING Thickening is a procedure used to increase the solids content of sludge by removing a portion of the liquid fraction. To illustrate, if waste activated sludge, which is typically pumped from secondary tanks with a content of 0.8% solids, can be thickened to a content
Gravity Belt Thickener Maintenance. The "sludge" removed from the Gravity Belt Thickener process is then pumpable to further dewatering and filtering processes, and so it is vital that Gravity Belt Thickeners are maintained and serviced regularly to ensure that all equipment is
The Hycor® ThickTech™ Rotary Drum Thickener (RDT) is the industry leading sludge thickener. Its performance is unmatched, with sludge volume reduction of 90% and a 98% capture rate. In addition, this superior performance is achieved with very low amounts of polymer.
Passavant Gravity Thickener offers a particularly economic solution for the mechanical thickening process. The robust, tried and tested gravity thickeners are designed for a maximum pressure of 0.58 psi on the bottom scraper blades which enables sludge thickening of up to 600 g/l (80 oz/gal), depending on the type of sludge.
Our component plan allows you to assemble a clarifier or thickener from a menu of pre-engineered, job-tested stock components, many of which were originally developed for use in custom mechanisms. This brochure provides a menu of standard components and acces-

Monroe Environmental builds Primary and Secondary Circular Clarifiers for industrial and municipal wastewater treatment, as well as Flocculating Clarifiers and Solids Contact Clarifiers for clean water or potable water applications. Our experienced staff will provide high efficiency, low maintenance systems that will provide the highest return on investment.
The ABCs of flow racks. Flow racks are very easy to implement in any given facility as part of the FIFO method. Here’s how it works, on one side, the employee tasked with keeping materials in stock at the point of use in production areas (sometimes referred to as a “water spider”—‘mizusumashi’ in Japanese) will supply containers of new parts to the production side on inclined tracks.
The Monroe lamella plate Vertical Clarifier is designed to provide low cost, efficient solids removal from a wide range of waste and process liquids. The inclined plate design allows the total gravity settling area to be as much as ten times more than the actual floor space occupied by the clarifier.
Engineered with the operator in mind, our low-profile design provides modular flexibility, quality design, and low maintenance, without compromising performance. The SMX-Q belt press is ideal where highest dry solids and throughput capacity are required and is the most advanced belt filter press on
Usually, the sludge in waste water or drinking water treatment plants, after decanting and/or thickening, reaches the Screwmax: slow-speed sludge dewatering system. (patented) These sludge, prior to enter the machine, must be mixed normally in a tank in order that the sludge is homogeneous and the floc is generated correctly.
