Thickeners and Clarifiers

Parnaby thickeners and clarifiers have a special profile and an internal moving rake designed to achieve the rapid settlement of solids in water. We make a range of cones from 3m to 20m diameter capable of throughputs of between 30 amd 1,000 cubic metres per hour.

 

Benefits:

  • High throughput
  • Low flocculant requirement (e.g High Midlings content)
  • Modular design
  • Easily assembled
  • Does not need to be bolted to foundations
  • New cones can be added to existing systems

Operation

Effluent is pumped from the sump to the top of the cone. A polymer flocculant is added (2) which causes fine particles to bind together and settle rapidly. Clear water overflows from the top of the cone (5) into a storage tank. The sludge at the bottom of the cone (which usually contains 30 – 35% solids) is pumped to a conditioning tank.
