Clarification



Tube Settler System

Brentwood - Tube Settler System can be used in both drinking water and wastewater applications as an inexpensive method of upgrading new and existing treatment plant clarifiers and sedimentation basins to improve performance and reduce the solids loading on downstream filters. Additional applications include: ballasted flocculation, membrane and desalination pretreatment, resin recovery, secondary and tertiary wastewater clarification, and phosphorous removal. Tube settlers handle application rates from 1.5 to 4.5 gallons per minute per square foot. Design application rates should be verified in accordance with local design standards and selected with consideration of influent water chemistry, floc settleability, and basin hydraulics.

Rectangular Clarifier – Envirex® Chain & Scraper

Evoqua - Rectangular Clarifier - Envirex® Chain & Scraper system provides maximum sludge concentrations and floating solid removal. The system is comprised of light-weight components, which makes installation easy and simplifies maintenance.  Flights mounted on two parallel strands of metallic or non-metallic chain scrape the settled solids along the tank floor to sludge hoppers. On the return run, the flights can skim the surface and concentrate the floating material at a scum removal device.

Sludge Removal System – Hoseless w dual head and dual cable drum

JMS- Jim Myers & Sons - Mega-VAC Sludge Removal System is a hoseless sludge removal system using the hydraulic head differential between the water surface and the sludge discharge elevation (or pump when needed). Head pressure in the basin forces sludge into the dual headersces, and on to the discharge point for collection. This low headloss design uses Flow Balancing Diagonals for even intake across the header pipe result in efficient wall to wall sludge removal. It is not subjected to clogging like systems with headloss control to equalize sludge removal. Dual head design, removes sludge from the entire basin floor despite traveling only 55% its length. Less movement means reduced wear, increased longevity, and higher removal rates.

Sludge Removal System – Chain & Flight collector

Polychem - Chain & Flight Collector system removes bottom sludge and transfers it to a sludge hopper at the influent end of the clarifier while also skimming out floating surface scum and discharging it via a scum pipe.

Weir Cleaning System

Clarifier CleanSweep

Parallel Plates & Sludge Removal Systems

JMS - Jim Myers and Sons - JMS Mega-SETTLER (Plate Settler System) is one of the most effective plate settler systems. With such key features as Top Flow Control Angle (TFCA™), Dual Side-Loaded Effluent Troughs, and Adjustable V-Notch Weirs (2VNP™) JMS Mega-SETTLER will improve effluent quality in a smaller footprint.

   

Solids Contact Clarifiers – ClearStream

ClearStream offers a complete line of sedimentation equipment for most water, wastewater, and industrial applications. ClearStream utilizes cutting edge analysis and design technologies to custom design each piece of process equipment to meet each individual customer's needs. Capabilities include advanced computational fluid dynamic (CFD), finite element analysis (FEA) and civil / structural software codes, to ensure process performance and structural integrity. All mechanisms are fully designed in a 3-D CAD environment to produce the highest quality, and customer friendly designs possible. Solids contact clarifier includes installations at Spring River WTP in Columbus Kansas.

 

Solids Contact Clarifiers

Kusters Water  Hi-Tech Products - Solids Contact Clarifier -  employs proven recycle solids contact principal for highly efficient flocculation, sedimentation, and clarification in a single compact basin. Solids contact units are widely used for the removal of turbidity for lime softening, and for chemical coagulation in municipal and industrial applications.

Clarifier Drives – Potable Water

DBS Clarifier Drive

DBS Manufacturing Bridge or Pier-Mounted dual concentric drum output drive unit provides reliability and performance with two independent drive units are stacked concentrically together to drive a rake mechanism and a turbine.

Dual concentric drum output drive units are typically used on solids contact and flocculating clarifiers or softeners.

Ballasted Clarification – CoMag for Enhanced Primary or Tertiary

Evoqua - CoMag is a high rate clarification process utilizing internal recycling of settled solids and small amount of Magnetite (non-abrasive, high specific gravity) for floc formation to allow for less chemical use and  footprints up to 20x smaller than conventional clarification. The CoMag System easily integrates with planned or existing facilities to allow the use of existing clarifiers of any size or type. Applications included treating wet weather flows, phosphorus removal and water re-use.
