    Efficiency of raking in gravity thickeners - ScienceDirect

    There is little published literature on the design and operation of rakes in gravity thickeners. In practice, design principles and operating guidelines rely heavily on experience and are usually qualitative in nature. In some industry applications, in particular in minerals processing, raking can be a rate-limiting step, with high rake torque

    Gravity thickening is the most common method used to thicken primary sludge and combined primary and secondary sludge. The presence of secondary solids, particularly WAS, typically results in poor gravity thickener performance in terms of solids capture rate and thickened solids concentrations. ...

    Thickening - Resource Book

    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 addition of chemicals called flocculants. The

    Improve Clarifier and Thickener Design and Operation

    Clarifiers and thickeners are essentially ide ntical units; a clarifier produces clean water, while a thickener concentrates a solids slurry as the desired product. In this discussion, thickener will be used to describe both units. Also, a gravity separation of solids from water is

    What is Gravity Disc Thickener? - Parason

    The gravity thickener works on the principle of gravitational force by which the solid sludge is settled at the bottom of the sedimentation tank thus isolating the solid from the liquid. Gravity thickener is the best option for small quantity or limited stock preparation requirements. Gravity thickener is used to generate pulp in the quantity

    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. Rectangular units have been used as gravity

    The continuous‐flow gravity thickener: Steady state

    Abstract. The equations governing consolidation in a continuous-flow gravity thickener are developed based on the assumption that a flocculated suspension possesses a compressive yield stress Py (ϕ) that is a function of local volume fraction only. These equations are used to model the steady state operation of a thickener

    A review of recent literature on gravity thickening indicates a gradual shift in the approach used by researchers to view the thickening process (4,5,6,7). An increasing number of investigators have come to realize that any rigorous examination of the thickening process must be based on a detailed analysis of the filtration and

    Jun 18, 2020 Gravity thickeners generally retain 80−90% of the solids in the thickened product stream, depending on the sludge characteristics and the efficiency of the preceding conditioning stage. The sludge characteristics also govern the solids loading rate (SLR), which is the rate in kg/d at which the sludge dry solids enter the process per unit process cross-sectional area
