DESCRIPTION

A Lamella Plate Settler uses parallel inclined plates to minimize floor area occupation. The size and cost of the settler can be reduced by matching the thickening and clarifying requirements more closely. Two basic criteria for gravity settling equipment to be met are sufficient clarity of the overflow liquid and maximum density of the underflow solids discharge. The area needed to clarify a suspension is often greater than that needed for thickening. This means that in a cylindrical thickening tank, the lower section with rakes and drive mechanisms can be oversized.
