Thickeners

THICKENERS

Thickening is a process applied for having a high ratio of solid materials by removing the excess amount of water present in sludge. Even the minimum rate of increase (such as 3-6 %) obtains a significant decrease rate of total sludge volume (50%). It provides a cost-effective solution because of the reason that smaller treatment plants can be needed. Thickeners are the commonly used equipment for increasing the density of solid wastes coming from water and wastewater treatment and transmitting it to the dewatering plant. The higher density of the sludge results in the reduction of the sludge flow and the size of the subsequent sludge dewatering steps. Similar to circular scrapers, Sismat Uluslararası presents two types of circular thickeners as following:

• Central driven fixed bridge circular thickeners

• Peripheral driven rotating bridge circular thickeners
