Remove sediment from wastewater reliably and effectively, using up to 80% less footprint than conventional technologies.
The Lamella Plate Clarifier is a primary clarification device used to treat sewage and industrial waste streams and requires up to 80% less space when compared to a traditional settling tank.
Supplied as a complete, easy-to-install unit or as a plate pack assembly for installation into either a concrete or steel tank, the Lamella Plate Clarifier provides low-footprint water clarification for municipal and industrial treatment applications. By reducing the settling distance dramatically, higher flows can be treated in a much smaller footprint.
1) Effluent enters the unit through the inlet pipe (brown arrow) and flows downward through the inlet chamber in the centre of the unit, entering the plates through openings in the sides.
2) As the liquid flows upward the solids settle on the inclined, parallel plates and slide into the hopper at the bottom of the unit. In the hopper, the sludge is thickened prior to discharge through the sludge outlet (brown arrow).
3) The clarified liquid leaves the plate assembly through openings at the top and is discharged into collection channels leading to the clarified water outlet (blue arrow).
4) The openings at the top of the plate assembly are designed to create a pressure drop across the collection channels, ensuring that the flow is distributed uniformly between the plates and that the full area is utilised.
Free standing with bottom cone hopper. Optional sludge scraper can be installed within hopper. A flocculation tank with stirrer can also be added to allow chemical dosing.
Free standing with a thickener scraper. A combined separator and sludge thickening unit designed for liquids with up to 4% DS sludge content. A flocculation tank with stirrer can also be added to allow chemical dosing.
Plate pack system for assembly into a new or existing concrete tank.
