Protectolite manufactures designs and furnishes custom fabricated FRP clarifier parts for the water and wastewater industry. Protectolite™ is an approved and preferred supplier of fiberglass components to a number of the top Consulting Engineering firms in North America. and has furnished FRP products such as Scum Baffles, Stamford Baffles, launder covers, and clarifier covers to waste water treatment plants across the USA for the past 20 years.
Protectolite listened to their customers and designed the cover to simply maintenance and operations with the ease of opening a design that is curved to be stronger and make it lighter to lift while providing a tighter cover to keep the sunlight from striking the weirs and baffles to prevent the formation of algae. Without sunlight, algae is eliminated along with the constant maintenance of cleaning and issues with downstream structures such as UV or filters.
The covers are custom designed to open to the center of tank, perimeter or side of the tank. The most popular design with the operators in mind is for the cover to open away from the operator where they has full access to the weir and troughs.
Weirs, Baffles, Troughs, and Stop-Logs/Stop Plates
- Excellent corrosion resistance
- High strength
- Lightweight and easy to install
- Longevity in all climates
- Low maintenance
Density Current Baffles / “Stamford” Baffles
Density Current Baffles improve clarifier flow performance by redirecting these currents back toward the center of the tank. This prevents these currents from short-circuiting and carrying light solids into the effluent reducing clarifier total suspended solids (TSS) and increasing the hydraulic capacity of the clarifier.
