Ever wondered what a gravity thickener looks like at a wastewater treatment plant? This sequence of photos is from early y 2014 through midNovember 2014 as the four gravity thickener tanks and the elevated slabs for the new pump station (to the left of the tanks in the last photo) at the Rock Creek Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility are

CIRCULAR CLARIFIER BRIDGE is a unit that facilitates the collection and removal of primary sludge and scum from the influent. Raw wastewater is introduced into the center of the clarifier and flows through the central baffle towards the clarifier bottom.
AES can offer gravity thickening, dissolved air flotation (DAF) thickening, centrifugal thickening, and rotary drum thickening depending upon the process application amp; space availability. 1. Gravity Thickening This process involves the concentration of thin sludges to more dense sludge in special circular tanks designed for this purpose.
Gravity thickener designs usually include circular tanks, 34 m (1013 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 16 and 13.
Existing thickening processes include intank thickening for the primary sludge, and DAFTs for thickening of WAS. Gravity thickening requires a high space requirement and can cause odors. Furthermore, gravity thickening is only suitable for primary sludge thickening. Since it
The basecase rheological parameters are a yield stress of Y = 5 Pa, flow index of n = 0.6 and a consistency of = 0.45 values that were taken from (unreported) measurements from a minerals industry gravity thickener.
Improve Clarifier and Thickener Design and Operation The depth of the tank is not a factor. The depths used in practice are typically 2.5 to 5 m (8 to 15 ft), which allow for inlet and outlet turbulence, and solids storage in the bottom of the unit. R.I., quot;Gravity Thickening of Sewage Sludges,quot; Effluent amp; Water Treatment Journal, Nov
Recall that gravity thickener operation varies between. summer and. winter due to the effect of temperature on gasification. 13.Recall two of three types of control for operating. a thickener. The list includes a. Control solids retention'tim232;. b. Control speed of collector. c. Control sludge blanket depth. 14. Define and calculate hydraulic loading. '
Chapter 5 Sludge treatment Gravity thickening Gravity thickening is achieved in circular tanks similar to sedimentation tanks. Sludge is allowed to settle and compact. The thickened sludge is withdrawn from the bottom of the thickener. To improve thickening some
5.1.1 Gravity Thickeners In gravity thickening, solids are concentrated by the gravityinduced settling and compaction. Gravity thickening of solids provides a twofold benefit concentration and flow equalization/storage. Gravity thickeners typically are used for thickening of primary solids.
Tank configuration accommodate existing and new tank, steep to flat tank bottom, shallow or deep side water depth The Ovivo174; thickener mechanism uses the fundamental principal of gravity separation of solids from liquid to produce a
Type C and CP Bridge Supported Thickeners, 10 feet through 50 feet diameter. The C and CP BridgeSupported Thickener is provided with a bridge which spans the tank diameter and carries the entire weight of the Thickener mechanism and the feed well.
thickeners reduce solids volume through concentration of sludge with gravity driving the process. sps manufactures thickener mechanisms to best suit the thickening process. steel shells or tanks are also available. the most widely used thickeners are depicted below. gravity thickeners. primary purpose produce concentrated sludge underflow.

Gravity Sludge Thickener Bridge Mounted DESCRIPTION Thickeners are used in water and wastewater applications to take solids from other liquid solids separation processes and thicken the solids prior to further dewatering and/or digestion.
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 assumed to take place.
Supernatant (influent material) from the gravity thickeners was collected in a polypropylene storage tank and then pumped at rates of 347, 116 and 58 mL/min for the 1, 3 and 6day HRT treatments, respectively. Peristaltic pumps, used to deliver influent, were checked weekly to ensure consistency and the delivery tubing cleaned three
Insufficient incinera tor capacity is the physical constraint which limits solids throughput for both the filters and thickeners and eventually dictates sludge wasting rates and the performance level of the secondary treatment facility. THICKENER BASIN The six gravity thickeners are arranged in two banks of three thickeners each.
Thickeners are used to concentrate solids, while clarifiers are used to purify liquids. A thickener will give you a high density underflow while a clarifier will not. The clarifier overflow is typically cleaner or clearer than the thickener overflow would be.
pumped from secondary tanks with a content of 0.8% solids, can be thickened to a content of 4% solids, then a fivefold decrease in sludge volume is achieved . Thickening is generally accomplished by physical means including cosettling, gravity
Gravity Thickener Gravity thickener is essentially a sedimentation process similar to the process that occurs in all settling tanks. It is the most common process currently used for dewatering and for the concentration of sludge before digestion. It is accomplished in a sedimentation tank in which solids separate from liquid phase by settling.
The Gravity Sludge Thickener can be used to recover additional water downstream to Tonka Waters TriClear solids contact clarifier. After water enters the tank, solids settle to the bottom and water then flows out for recovery.
formance of a continuous gravity thickener and secondary Sedimentation basins. 12 Gravity Thickening Gravity thickening is a process which increases the concentration of solids by gravitational forces. There are basically two types of gravity thickening processes batch settling and continuous settling.
Lateral Flow Thickeners can even be employed with aerobic digesters, re action tanks and gravity thickeners. Reliability is insured by the systems uncomplicated design.
Thickener is gravity sedimentation equipment to separate liquidsolid mixture of . as thickener applied in mineral processing plant, separating fine mineral from water, . mud, the mud will increase so high that it is forced to stop to clear tank.
During this study, the aerobic treatment tanks were set to treat a portion of the supernatant from the gravity thickening tank and this effluent discharged to a storage lagoon. Each aerated tank (1.2 m diameter 215; 1 m deep) contained 500 L and operated as a completely mixed stirred reactor.

Conventional Gravity Thickener WesTech's complete line of high rate, heavy duty thickeners offers the most advanced designs for use in the industry. WesTech equipment is engineered and manufactured to the highest standard in quality.
The Gravity Thickener Facilities were designed to mitigate odor emissions from the existing Set 2 Primary Sedimentation Tanks (PSTs). The design included replacement of all existing primary sludge pumps to continually pump settled solids out of the existing PSTs into four 80foot diameter gravity thickeners.
