Water desilting is the process of suspended solids separation under the influence of gravitational forces; the particles having a density greater than the density of water, move down, those with a lower density move up.
Lamellar clarifier is an open rectangular tank made of stainless steel or carbon steel, fiberglass and includes three main sections:
- receiving chamber;
- deposition chamber;
- treated water chamber.
Lamellar clarifier is designed for continuous separation of sludge and provides an increase in the area of desilting and the creation of a laminar flow.
The principle of operation is based on the fact that the load on the surface (m3/m2) of the clarifier does not depend on the depth. This means that the productivity of the clarifier can be improved by installing the dividing plates inclined at a certain angle, thereby creating several clarifiers.
Lamella clarifiers are used in:
- metallurgical treatment plants, food, chemical and other industries;
- drinking water purification stations.
Lamella clarifiaers are calculated and produced according to customer individual requirements.
