High Rate Thickener Design

The High Rate Thickener Solid Liquid Separation

2017-10-30  Description. The High-Rate thickeners became popular in the mid 1980's and are relatively newcomers to the sedimentation line of equipment. As already discussed previously Thickeners are a major component in a plant layout and occupy large spaces which may be saved by introducing high-rate machines. Furthermore, they are normally positioned far away from


2019-2-15  The key advantages of a High Rate Thickener over a conventional thickener are as follows: Some of key features of the MBE High Rate Thickener are • The HRT is designed specificallyto operate with flocculantsand hence optimises flocculant consumption. • The HRT has a special “ McTurbo“ feed well design combined with automatic feed

High rate thickener HR-THK ANDRITZ

High-rate thickener ANDRITZ process engineering will determine the optimum percentage of feed solids for the specific application during laboratory or pilot plant test work. The optimum percentage of feed solids will ensure proper flocculation and achievement of

High Rate Thickener TON Outotec

Feedwells are a significant factor in thickener performance. The cutting-edge design of the Vane Feedwell marks the first major innovation in the thickening and clarifying industry since the early 1990s. One of the main design features is the

AltaFlo™ High-Rate Thickener WesTech Engineering,

2021-2-20  The AltaFlo™ ultra high-rate thickener is a rake-less thickener that provides mixing, flocculation and internal dilution followed by clarification and positive sludge collection and removal in a single tank. The principles of flocculation have been further adapted to a new design that will thicken slurries at an even higher rate than a

High-Rate Thickeners McLanahan

High-Rate Thickeners, or Clarifiers, recover immediately reusable process water for mineral and aggregate producers, as well as environmental contractors. Thickeners are beneficial in a variety of applications, including areas where water is in short supply or very expensive, re-circulated water is not suitable for reuse in a plant, ponds are located on minable reserves, or ponds


Thickener design configuration s usually consider the high rate or paste thickener options, with a tradeoff between capital cost and process performance. Design s that assume a lower settling flux

Beginners guide to thickeners TON Outotec

Rise rate parametrizes the area required to recover the design flow or solids loading, the design dry tonnage. In high rate thickener (HRT) designs the rise rate or solids loading will dictate the required tank diameter for any given throughput.

How to Size a Thickener Mineral Processing &

2021-2-19  Knowing how to size a thickener and determine the capacity required to handle a pre-determined tonnage of a certain pulp, by overflowing a clear solution and obtaining the desired pulp density of thickener discharge, depends upon the settling rate of that particular pulp. The settling rate
