Solids Removal and Concentrating Unit

The Solids Removal Concentrating Unit and Clarifier is a linear solids removal unit that acts as a thickener and in the process of removing solids, also acts as a clarifier of liquid streams. This design is patented by Spectrum in three different countries: US, Canada, and Mexico. The intent, design, and function of the Solids Removal Concentrating Unit and Clarifier is focused on the solids handling problems encountered in flowing liquids containing various quantities of these solids. The Solids Removal Concentrating Unit and Clarifier can remove and process a considerable amount of solids per day from one pound to hundreds of tons with minor control changes and is not sensitive to flow or liquid/solid ratio variations. Floating materials may also be removed with the skimmer.        

The Solids Removal Concentrating Unit and Clarifier is designed to remove and concentrate solids and floating materials on a continuous basis from a flowing stream. The slurry stream flows into the Solids Removal Concentrating Unit and Clarifier on one end, the solids are removed out the bottom, the floating materials are skimmed from the top and the clean water comes out the other end.

Common Applications
