Thermoformed Vs. Extruded Tube Settlers

Thermoformed vs Extruded Tube Settlers

Tube settlers use multiple tubular channels, which are adjacent to each other and sloped at nominal 60˚ angles, to form an increased effective settling area. This configuration allows for a shorter particle setting depth, and as the tube settler channels collect solids, they form a compact mass that promotes the solids to slide down the channel. Tube settlers are an inexpensive method of upgrading existing clarifiers and sedimentation basins by allowing increased flow rate and/or improved performance. They can also reduce the footprint of new clarifier construction.
