SOLIDS REMOVAL BY PARALLEL PLATE SETTLING | WATER & WASTE WATER TREATMENT

SIGNIFICANT ENHANCEMENT IN SEPARATION PROCESSES

The content of sludge, sand and silts in surface water can reach several thousand milligrams per liter. Chemical precipitation and flocculation produce important amounts of solids.

The most economic process to remove this pollution is parallel plate settling (sedimentation). Multiple sedimentation planes within one tank reduce the size and cost of the tanks.

2H TUBEdek® FS41.50 tube settler is the ideal product for this application. It can be adapted to process design requirements by variation of inclination, length of tubes and module sizes. The lamella sedimentation process can be most efficiently applied based on the unique features of 2H TUBEdek®.

2H TUBEdek® features:

  • Mechanical strength simplifies installation, cleaning and maintenance
  • Advantageous hydraulic parameters achieve efficiency (Reynolds number)
  • Equidistant channels for full sedimentation
  • Special support systems avoid impact on the process
  • Up to 15 sedimentation planes above one sqm of base
  • V-Shaped tubes improve the discharge of solids

 

2H TUBEDEK CAN ALSO BE INSTALLED IN ROUND SEDIMENTATION TANKS

Rhomboid 2H TUBEdek® modules are not only suited to be used in rectangular tanks. No, they can be installed in round tanks as well. Depending on the diameter of the sedimentation tank, a tangential, a radial or a parallel configuration will be applied.
