Manufacturer Brochure Information
The two most common applications for the solids CONTACT CLARIFIER are cold lime softening, where the unit is used to maximize the rate of chemical precipitation, and surface water clarification, where the unit is used as an enhanced locculation device.
The heart of a true solids CONTACT CLARIFIER is WesTech’s uniquely efficient, high-volume, low-head, low-shear pump which lifts concentrated settled solids to mix with the low-solids concentration inlet flow and disperses the mixture into the upper solids contact zone. WesTech’s recirculation impeller has lower horsepower draw and less shear than any other impeller on the market.
The solids contact zone is a slow mix zone where chemical precipitation and / or enhanced flocculation occurs. Velocities decrease due to the size and shape of the reaction well, resulting in tapered flocculation. Both conical and cylindrical-shape reaction wells are available.
