PASTE THICKENER

SIMPLICITY IN CLARIFICATION

Aquatop logo - Matec Industries

The function of the Paste Thickener is to increase the density of a sludge stream. This is done by introducing the sludge into the settling tank and allowing the solids to settle.
The clean water overflows for reuse or disposal. The settled solids are collected in the central cone of the decanter or clarifier and are disposed of as thickened sludge that can be treated or disposed of as required. Due to the low solids content, the discharge from a clarifier is usually intermittent.
