• GRAVITY THICKENING OF ACTIVATED SLUDGE

    1-2 Gravity Thickening Gravity thickening is a process which increases the concentration of solids by gravitational forces. There are basically two types of gravity thickening processes: batch settling and continuous settling. Settling velocities are primarily examined in the process of batch thickening.

    s, and the solids removal point. Gravity thickener designs usually include circular tanks, 3-4 m (10-13 ft) deep and up to 25 m (82 ft) in diameter. The dimensions are based on prediction of settling due to gravity alone. To assist solids transport, gravity thickener bottoms are constructed with a floor slope between 1:6 and 1:3.

    Gravity thickening can be analyzed in terms of settling flux G, which is the solid mass settling downward per unit time per unit area. The flux into the thickener, on average, should not exceed the basin's ability to transfer the solids downward.

    Continuous thickening by an operation called sedimentation is the separation of suspended solid particles from a liquid stream by gravity settling. The primary purpose of thickening is to increase the solids concentration of the feed stream. Gravity settling is aided by

    Gravity Settler. Gravity Settlers are normally used for clarification or thickening. They operate with slow settling solids generally finer than 50 microns which a thickened slurry which can be pumped out of the equipment. The use of flocculants can usually improve the performance of the sedimentation equipment. Type of Gravity Settler: Thickener

  • Thickener or Thickener plant COGEDE

    Thickener is an equipment designed for solid liquid separation by gravity settling.The main goal of the thickener or of a thickener plant is to separate the solid & liquid part from the slurry and to concentrate as much as possible the solid part in the bottom of the thickener in order to get from the top of the thickener, clear water as much as possible free from the solids.

    Gravity thickening is achieved in circular tanks similar to sedimentation tanks. Sludge is allowed to settle and compact. The thickened sludge is withdrawn from the bottom of the thickener. To improve thickening some h3 = settling zone, typically taken as 1.5m.

  • THICKENERS Thermopedia

    A thickener is an equipment structure used for the continuous gravity settling (sedimentation) of solids in suspensions. Suspension is fed into one or more basins or chambers and, whilst it is passing through, the solids settle out. The thickened solids are removed together with a

  • Gravity Thickening SpringerLink

    Thickening is defined as removal of water from sludge to achieve a reduction in moisture content of slurries. The resulting material is still fluid. Thickening is used at most wastewater treatment plants, as an economic measure, to reduce the volume of sludge or for greater efficiency in subsequent processes.
