The Most Efficient Solution to Thicken Sludge. The Centrisys Sludge Thickener (THK Series) is specifically engineered to achieve high performance thickening of biosolids. The non conical design results in greater G volume, allowing for the highest capacity of flow to the centrifuge. The THK improves upon existing technologies using fundamental
Rise rate parametrizes the area required to recover the design flow or solids loading, the design dry tonnage. In high rate thickener (HRT) designs the rise rate or solids loading will dictate the required tank diameter for any given throughput.
Gravity belt thickener model selection is a function of hydraulic feed rate; the Model G 25 thickening system is generally appropriate for 0.5% to 1.0% waste activated sludge feed rates up to 125 GPM (7.9 liters/sec or 28 M3/h) and the GSC and GSCE series machines are appropriate for higher feed rates.
offered to enhance performance of existing thickeners and clarifiers. tHiCkener design MIP Thickeners and Clarifiers are designed to operate continuously for 24 hours per day. Process selections are based on test work coupled with our vast experience in the field of thickening. It is our belief that a thickener should not be designed on the limit since metallurgical operations are dynamic.
Thickeners. These tanks, equipped with mechanical scraping devices and launders are usually termed thickeners in the metallurgical field and clarifiers in the sewage and water purification fields. Thickeners, equipped with the patented spiral scrapers and angle rakes are a distinct improvement over all types of mechanical raking devices now in use.

The sludge thickening system is designed to achieve flocculation with a minimal amount of expensive chemicals. The floc tank has tangential inlet and outlet openings to maximize flocculation by reducing shear from turbulence. This design creates a gentle swirl that combines the sludge with the polymer.
The design involves selecting a typical solids flux and calculating the required surface area by dividing the anticipated solids feed by the flux . Area of the thickener 2. Design based on Iaboratory data First Approach It is the best technique if the Iaboratory data is available. Typical test is done by using a 1000mL graduated cylinder.
Jun 14, 20160183;32;Thickener Feed System Design. WesTech developed an improved system, method and/or apparatus for the even distribution of the feed slurry in order to provide the end user with the most economical thickener in terms of reagent consumption and size. This report introduces the WesTech EvenFlo feedwell design that addresses these issues.

The innovative paste thickener design facilitates highly clarified liquid recovery as well as maximum underflow densities. ANDRITZs supply philosophy is to present the user with the most effective and technically viable system. This is especially important when very high underflow densities are required.
WesTech Engineering has taken the next step in advancing thickener technology with our Thickener Optimization Package (TOP). The TOP thickener design approach adds ten innovative features to the thickener to provide a better process solution. EvenFlo Feedwell The feedwell is a core component for every thickener. Energy dissipation and even feed distribution from the EvenFlo
feedwell system. An inner chamber converts the feed energy into a concentric radial flow. The main feedwell chamber then evenly distributes the feed into the sedimentation zone of the thickener. Patent Pending WesTechs Thickener Optimization Package TOP
Lamella Inclined Plate Clarifier. The Graver Lamella design utilizes inclined plate clarification to separate solids from the water and clarify the water. The lamella is composed of a series of removable parallel plates commonly referred to as lamella plates. Stacking the inclined plates results in a separator having up to ten times
Equipment Design There are three main types of thickeners/clarifiers bridge support, column support, and traction. In a bridge support thickener, such as the one shown below, the rakes and drive mechanism are suspended from a bridge that spans the diameter of the tank. They are usually only economical for diameters of fewer than 100 feet.

MIPs tank design provides for a scalloped bottom mild steel tank design. Thickener Mechanism The mechanism consists of the drive with an optional lifting device, torque tube, rake arms, blades and bridge.
Case studies and generalized experiences will be discussed in detail to emphasize the numerous sludge treatment and disposal alternatives. Data will be presented to assist the design engineer in selecting the optimum unit processes for inclusion in a particular conceptual design.
Conceptual design in itself is not the end of the design process, rather it servers as a basis for the detailed MIS design. The performance requirements specified by the conceptual design become inputs to the detailed design phase, in which these are further refined, detailed and finalized to be called the system specifications.
Prior to the advent of paste thickeners, a mine would specify and buy a high rate thickener. The vendor would design and install it. Because the underflow from a conventional thickener, a tailings slurry, flowed according to Newtonian principles, each of the other aspects of the system could all be designed independently and they would work well.
THICKENERS. A thickener is an equipment structure used for the continuous gravity settling (sedimentation) of solids in suspensions. Suspension is fed into one or more basins or chambers and, whilst it is passing through, the solids settle out. The thickened solids are removed together with a portion of the liquid as thickened quot;underflowquot;.
The best resources for System Design Interviews (SDIs) I can recommend are Grokking the System Design Interview and HiredInTech. For SDI, I used to refer people towards HiredInTech, although it still is a good resource, but it lacks contents and t
McLanahan has provided Paste Thickeners both with and without pickets and rakes depending on the process outcomes sought by producers. By employing a series of proprietary design tools, McLanahan process engineers will test and design the Paste Thickener to achieve the
Circular Clarifier amp; Thickener Expertise. The center feed well design can be equipped with a chemical addition system with mixing and flocculation. With the center feed well, the effluent is discharged along the outer wall of the clarifier tank. Clarifiers with peripheral inlets
Counter Current Decantation Design Formula. The overflow from the first thickener of the Counter Current Decantation series containing the greatest amount of dissolved metal is sent to precipitation or to the grinding and classifying circuit. The underflow is pumped to the next thickener, diluted with the overflow from the third of the series,
High rate thickeners are designed specifically to maximise the flocculation efficiency of flocculants. They differ from conventional thickeners in feed well design, size and control. Unlike conventional thickeners, high rate thickeners must use flocculants. The basic design of a high rate thickener
Gravers design assures laminar flow conditions that result in hydraulic uniformity and high effluent quality. The compact footprint results in a great reduction in the space needed for clarification equipment and can be installed indoors if desired, or be easily relocated at a later date.
thickener using a low head axial pump to drive dilution water into the feedwell. The main advantage of the Forced Dilution system is that it takes the overflow liquor from a large surface area ne gating the risk of causing localized high internal rise rates.
The principle of Counter Current Decantation is simply that, when water or solution is to act upon solids, both are made to pass, in contact, in opposite directions, so that at each end the strongest or most potent portion of either is acting upon the weakest or most exhausted portion of the other. The recovery of dissolved gold and silver from slime pulp in the cyanide process, as first
