DensaDeg® High Rate Clarifier/ThickenerSource: Degremont Technologies
The DensaDeg Clarifier/Thickener is a high-rate solids contact clarifier which combines optimized flocculation, internal and external sludge recirculation, and plate settling in two conjoined vessels to achieve very high hydraulic loading and treatment efficiencies. The proprietary blend of energy input and high volume solids recirculation causes the weight of the sludge to increase more rapidly than its volume.
- The space requirement is usually 50% the size of a comparable solids contact clarifier.
- The unit produces a very dense sludge that minimizes sludge handling.
- Rapid sludge settling and thickening are combined in one tank.
- Operator attention is minimized because there is no need for chemical adjustment.
