Thickeners are essentially clarifiers producing a clearer over flow. The design considerations are based on the settling rates of the slowest settling particles and conditions for minimum disturbance of the medium (water) through which the solid particles are allowed to settle.
The thickener design based on the solids flux data obtained in the Iaboratory involves the selection of the solids flux that will limit the operation of the thickener in other words, the maximum solids loading.
As a feed stream enters the thickener, the solids settle to the bottom. Clarified liquor overflows to the top Unlike conventional thickeners, high rate thickeners must use flocculants. The basic design of a high rate thickener is below. plastic sheeting, and soil cement. The selection of the materials of construction is based on cost
Selected Chemical Engineering Operations Clarifier and Thickener Design In a continuous thickener, the area required for thickening must be such that the total solids flux (volumetric flow rate per unit area) at any level does not exceed the rate at which the solids can be transmitted downward If no solids escape in the overflow
xvEPA United States Environmental Protection Agency Biosolids Technology Fact Sheet Gravity Thickening DESCRIPTION Thickening is the process by which biosolids are condensed to produce a concentrated solids product and a relatively solids free supernatant.
provides other important information such as expected achievable (design) underflow solids concentration, optimum flocculant type and dosage, feedwell dilution etc. The expected underflow solids concentration is probably one of the most important parameters in the design of the thickener.
CHAPTER 3 SLUDGE THICKENING Thickening is a procedure used to increase the solids content of sludge by removing a portion of the liquid fraction. To illustrate, if waste activated sludge, which is typically The thickener design based on the solids flux data obtained in
5.1.1 Gravity Thickeners In gravity thickening, solids are concentrated by the gravity induced settling and compaction. Gravity thickening of solids provides a two fold benefit concentration and flow equalization/storage. Gravity thickeners typically are used for thickening of primary solids.
the gravity thickening process. The model is based on an analysis of transport phenomena within the sludge layer during thickening. By using this new mathematical mode l to predict thickening behavior, design of thickeners as well as design for the thickening function of clarifiers can now be conducted on a wholly rational basis. The model
Design of wastewater treatment sludge thickeners. The principal design criterion is solids loading expressed in units of kilograms of solids applied per square meter of bottom area per day (kg/m2.d). Typical loading values and thickened sludge concentrations based on

Starting with the deposition design, pumping and pipe and thickener design were evaluated in an iterative fashion to design a system based on the same rheology. The thickening study identified significant variations in the particle size distribution (PSD) fast settling flocculated solids
The observed segregation within a thickener is known as an island and its presence was previously unknown. Having this amount of information about the state of a thickener bed has important implications for thickener design, operation and control.
Design of a Thickener With the use of the batch sedimentation data collected from the column with slurry of concentration 100g/L CaCO3, the continuous thickener parameters calculated were as follows Table 5. Continuous Thickener Design Parameters
The effect of particle size and solids concentration the effect of particle size was evaluated on three different particle size fractions of silica sand with d50 values of 90, 180 and 300 microns.
It is employed mainly in design calculations to determine the required thickener area, the most important design parameter, and ultimately the maximum steady state underflow concentration that is possible for a given solid throughput.
The torque capability of a thickener drive is specified as Duty Rating being the maximum mechanism design strength or the 100% setting on the Torque Control Box. The torque, in turn, depends on a K factor and the thickener diameter based on the following formula Torque
Thickeners that are designed properly with sufficient contingencies and conservatism should be able to deliver the design target underflow solids concentration as an average figure over time, but nevertheless fluctuations of the thickener underflow solids and flowrate are inevitable.
MIP Thickener Design The following is a short cut to designing your own thickener (a) Size of Thickener As a first stab we can either use the thickener flux (m. 2 /tpd) or the rise rate, depending if solids loading is the dominant (eg.

A retrofit service is offered to enhance performance of existing thickeners and clarifiers. tHiCkener design MIP Thickeners and Clarifiers are designed to operate continuously for 24 hours per day. Process selections are

The Volute Thickener design is based on the patented dewatering drum design used for the PWTech Volute Dewatering Press sludge dewatering unit. The Volute Thickener is a very simple piece of equipment that is virtually maintenance free and fully automated. It is designed to take dilute sludges and thicken them allowing for more cost
There is an equation of thickener capacity based on throughput in tons/hr and the base area of the thickener, but I'm loath to disclose it unless the engineer asking has some understanding of steel thicknesses and foundations for the tank.
Starting with the deposition design, pumping and pipe and thickener design were evaluated in an iterative fashion to design a system based on the same rheology. The thickening study identified significant variations in the particle size distribution (PSD) fast settling flocculated solids and high solid
Similar to the digesters, there are two design approaches in thickeners too 1. Design based on experience. 2. Design based on Iaboratory data. 1. Design based on experience Solids throughput is an important criterion in the design of thickeners. The design is mostly based on the solids flux, i.e. kg solids/h/m2. Typical flux values are given in

The applied solids feed rate can now be calculated as a flux see Eqs. 8a and 8b. Applied flux = G f = (x f Q f) / A (8a) (8b) Applications to thickener design. Once the settling flux curve is drawn, the optimum operating point can be determined.
