    12-7-2016· How a Thickener Works. up of a mixture of finely divided solids and liquids. The early methods of thickening employed plain, flat-bottomed tanks into which the pulp was fed until the tank was full. Laboratory tests and plant operation have also established that a well-aerated pulp settles better than

  • How to Operate a Thickener Mineral Processing &

    This brings us to the most important indicator of thickener operation, the overload alarm. There is a spring arrangement attached to the drive mechanism up on top in such a way that when the arms begin plowing into sludge more than they were meant to, the spring

  • Beginners Guide to Thickeners Outotec

    Many thickener installations operate with water recovery below design limits largely through conservative control and low prioritization of thickener optimization. The operation of the thickener must accommodate fluctuations control for disturbances in the process feed stream to deliver a clear overflow and thickened underflow.

  • Thickener Operation Zeroday Enterprises

    Flocculants are typically introduced either to the slurry-water pipe feeding the thickener, to a feed tank before the thickener, to the centerwell or a combination of these addition points. Where flocculant is optimally dosed is typically determined by plant evaluation and varies from operation to operation and is influenced by solids substrate, particle sizes and system specific factors.

    operation is probable. Abnormal thickener operation or excessive torque may result from insufficient underflow pumping, surges in the solids feed rate, excessive amounts of large particles, sloughing of the solids accumulated between the rakes and the bottom of the tank or on structural members of the rake

  • Improve Clarifier and Thickener Design and Operation

    In Table I of the July article, "improve Clarifier and Thickener Design and Operation," by Joel Christian (pp. 50-56), the titles Vi and TSS are reversed. The first TSS is 3.1 and the first Vi is 6.045. In the overloaded case on p. 55, the underflow c oncentration should be 240 kg/m 3, not 140.

  • Conventional Thickeners Solid Liquid Separation

    Thickener tanks may be constructed either from steel or concrete and may reach diameters of 120 meters and in earthen basins up to 180 meters. Most of the stone process industries prefer the steel tanks construction since they may be elevated above ground level, allow inspection of the tank's floor for leakages and bring the underflow slurry pumps nearer to the outlet of the discharge cone.

  • Thickeners: How they Operate Mainland Machinery

    Thickeners: How they Operate. The most common solids-liquid (S/L) unit operation is thickening. A wide variety of thickeners are used including conventional, deep well, paste, high rate and clarifiers which is a thickener subclass used for removing solids from turbid or very low % solids waters.

  • CHAPTER 3 SLUDGE THICKENING Marmara Üniversitesi

    Operation of a Thickener A thickener operates pretty much like a settling tank. The feed enters from the middle, are distributed radially, the settled sludge is collected from the underflow, the effluent exits over the weirs. In a continuously operated thickener, there are different zones of concentration. The

  • thickeners & clarifiers MIP Process Corp

    tHiCkener design MIP Thickeners and Clarifiers are designed to operate continuously for 24 hours per day. Process selections are based on test work coupled with our vast experience in the field of thickening. It is our belief that a thickener should not be designed on the limit since metallurgical operations


    For the rest of the time, however, thickener performance (or lack of it) seriously affects the rest of the operation. In many plants, thickener problems are a regular, day-today operational event.

  • Thickener Design pdf, Mining Thickener, Thickener Tank

    The thickening equipment of gold cyanide factory adopted hydraulic motor driving center thickener, the capacity does not meet expected goals, and the timing of rake lost working hours, the working efficiency is low. On this basis, the client increased two improved hydraulic motor driving center thickener.

  • Thickeners & Clarifiers TENOVA

    Shear Thinning. An important option for the operation of a paste thickener. Our newly developed shear thinning system imparts energy efficiently in a well-controlled environment into highly viscous and high yield stress slurries in order to improve their pumpability.

  • Thickeners McLanahan

    How Thickeners Work. Feed to the Thickener enters from the feed tank to minimize air entrapment. The slurry is then introduced at a controlled velocity into the Thickener feedwell, where a flocculating agent is added from a polymer make-down system and is distributed evenly into the Thickener settling zone.

  • Clarifier Wikipedia

    Clarifiers are settling tanks built with mechanical means for continuous removal of solids being deposited by sedimentation. A clarifier is generally used to remove solid particulates or suspended solids from liquid for clarification and/or thickening. Concentrated impurities, discharged from the bottom of the tank are known as sludge, while the particles that float to the surface of the

  • Sludge Thickening an overview ScienceDirect Topics

    Sludge Thickening. Sludge thickening is Two types of nonmechanical thickening operations are presently in use: Lamella settlers (Section 8.17) are sometimes combined with a thickener in a single tank about 5.5 m deep, with a settlement rate of about 0.5–0.7 m/h on the projected area.

  • Solid Liquid Separation Thickening ScienceDirect

    A variation is the tray thickener where trays or compartments are placed one on top of the other. Each tray acts as a thickener and the assembly operates in parallel with a common pier or shaft where the rakes are fixed. Clarification takes place in series operation, that is, the thickener underflow from the top compartment serves as feed to the lower compartment.

  • Biosolids Technology Fact Sheet Gravity Thickening

    Therefore, the tank design must ensure a smooth, continuous flow of liquid at the center well, the weirs, 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
