Thickner Description and Specifications for Lab Tenders
Industrial sedimentation operations may
be carried out batch wise and continuously in equipment called
thickener. The equipment is a cylindrical tank with openings for a
slurry feed and product draw off. The tank is filled with dilute slurry
and slurry is permitted to settle. Continuous thickeners are large
diameter, shallow depth tanks with slowly revolving rakes for removing
the sludge. The slurry is fed at the center of the tank. Around the top
edge of the tank is a clear liquid overflow. The rake serves to scrap
the sludge towards the center of the bottom for discharge. The motion of
the rake also stirs only the sludge layer. This gentle stirring aids in
water removal from the sludge.
The set-up consists of several basic
components: a tank to contain the slurry, feed piping and a feed well to
allow the feed stream to enter the tank, a rotating rack mechanism to
assist in moving the concentrated solids to the withdrawal points, an
underflow solids-withdrawal system and an overflow launder. A feed tank,
feed pump, and feed tank agitator is provided. A bin for collecting
material is also provided.
