thickeners and clarifiers

NEW AND USED THICKENERS AND CLARIFIERS FOR SALE

Thickeners and clarifiers are both used to settle solids which results in the separation of liquids and solids. Thickeners are used to concentrate solids, while clarifiers are used to purify liquids.

In thickeners and clarifiers the particles settle out of the slurry under the effects of gravity, or centripetal forces. To aid in the sedimentation process, flocculants and coagulants are added to reduce the repulsive forces between the particles. After thickening, slurry is often stored in ponds or impoundments.
