Solid Contact Clarifiers
We are manufacturing world class Solid Contact Clarifiers that have capacity to act as both an improved flocculation device and high rate chemical precipitator. Here, mixing, internal solids recirculation, gentle flocculation and gravity sedimentation are all combined within single unit. The solid contact clarifiers mix the influent flow with previously settled solids within the draft tube. In this, the gentle mixing within the reaction well promotes agglomeration of floc particles and chemical precipitates. Then, the aggregated solids settle out more quickly in the clarification area. In the solid contact clarifiers, clarified overflow is removed through a radial launder system that draws water from the complete surface area to avoid solids carryover caused by uneven velocity currents.
