Clarifiers—also called settling tanks—enable the continuous removal of solid refuse from the wastewater purification process. Wastewater clarifier in Camden County, MO are essential pieces of equipment and are required in the right capacity to provide efficient, effective purification for the wastewater operation they’re involved in.
At Enviro-Line Co, Inc., we represent various manufacturers who produce peripheral feed and center feed clarifiers.
Peripheral Feed Clarifiers
Peripheral feed clarifiers are generally preferred by larger wastewater operations, and have several benefits that make them preferable. Namely, they’re known for less turbulent conditions thanks to good gravity settling. Peripheral feed clarifiers also double the water’s traveling path, reducing short circuiting. And, also of importance, the flow path moves the sludge closer to the center of the tank instead of pulling it away.
Center Feed Clarifiers
Center feed clarifiers are better at dealing with volatile inflow rates, managing water turbulence to preserve the efficiency of the clarifier. Entering the clarifier through a central inlet also creates a naturally better dispersion of wastewater, for more effective settling and better quality effluent. Center feed clarifiers are commonly preferred in metropolitan wastewater operations with larger or erratic inflows.
