Thickeners How they Operate Mainland Machinery

Thickeners How they Operate. The most common solids liquid (S/L) unit operation is thickening. A wide variety of thickeners are used including conventional, deep well, paste, high rate and clarifiers which is a thickener subclass used for removing solids from turbid or very low % solids waters.

Clarifier an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The thickener or clarifier area must be sufficient to allow the slowest settling particle to reach the bed of compressing solids or bottom of the tank before its associated liquid has reached the overflow. There is a critical concentration in the settling process that the solids will achieve for which the settling rate, and associated upward liquor flow rate, will limit the solids throughput rate.

Thickener optimization to reduce production costs

In the thickener process there are many critical key performance indicators that show how the process is running all of which need to be measured accurately and reliably. Hydraulic pressure, bed height and bed mass are some of the critical measuring points, as well as underflow density, underflow rate, overflow clarity and dry solids feed rate.

Optimising thickener efficiency Sustainability Matters

Accurate volumetric measurement of the thickeners inflow is vital to ensure the clarity of the recovered process water. Essentially, the infeed flow rate can be controlled based on high clarity of the overflow. So the clearer the outflow, the faster the inflow feed rate, which leads to optimised thickener throughput.
