The Advantages of Tube Settlers

Sep. 26, 2017

  The advantages of tube settlers can be applied to new or existing clarifiers/basins of any size:

  1.Clarifiers/basins equipped with tube settlers can operate at 2 to 4 times the normal rate of clarifiers/basins without tube settlers.

  2.It is possible to cut coagulant dosage by up to half while maintaining a lower influent turbidity to the treatment plant filters.

  3.Less filter backwashing equates to significant operating cost savings for both water and electricity.

  4.New installations using tube settlers can be designed smaller because of increased flow capability.

  5.Flow of existing water treatment plants can be increased through the addition of tube settlers.

  6.Tube settlers increase allowable flow capacity by expanding settling capacity and increasing the solids removal rate in settling tanks.

  Tube settlers increase the settling capacity of circular clarifiers and/or rectangular sedimentation basins by reducing the vertical distance a flock particle has to travel downwards for settling or to agglomerate to form larger particles.

  We can supply PP tube settler with customized size and thickness. If you have any requirements, please contact me freely.
