Thickening is defined as removal of water from sludge to achieve a reduction in moisture content of slurries. The resulting material is still fluid. Thickening is used at most wastewater treatment plants, as an economic measure, to reduce the volume of sludge or for greater efficiency in subsequent processes.
Thickener design should provide adequate capacity to meet peak demands. 22.214.171.124 Septicity Thickener design should provide means to prevent septicity during the The diameter of a gravity thickener should not exceed 80 feet. January 2016 12 7 Design Criteria Ch. 12
tHiCkener design MIP Thickeners and Clarifiers are designed to operate continuously for 24 hours per day. Process selections are based on test work coupled with our vast experience in the field of thickening. It is our belief that a thickener should not be designed
a) 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 The thickened sludge is withdrawn from the bottom of the thickener.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 chemicals are added, this process is called sludge conditioning. Sludge conditioning is discussed below.
Gravity thickener designs usually include circular tanks, 3 4 m (10 13 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.
Alfa Laval AS H Belt Thickener Introduction Gravity belt thickener The Alfa Laval AS H Belt Thickener is considered the industry standard for superior value, performance and durability where removal of a liquid (usually water) from a solid liquid suspension/sludge, is required. The Belt Thickener is designed for low polymer consumption,

LABORATORY TESTING FOR DESIGN OF THICKENER CIRCUITS Joseph M. Keane K D Engineering Co., Inc. 1844 W. Grant Road, Suite 106 Tucson, Arizona 85745 Introduction Feed dilution or solids liquid weight The English word quot;sedimentationquot; ratio is derived from the Latin verb quot;sederequot; Size and shape of the particulate meaning to sink down.
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
Gravity Thickening. Related Information. Information for Biosolids Managers. Thickening is the process by which biosolids are condensed to produce a concentrated solids product and a relatively solids free supernatant. Thickening wastewater solids reduces the volume of residuals, improves operation, and reduces costs for subsequent storage
Software for the design and simulation of gravity thickeners Consider the design of an industrial thickener for a feed rate of 178 tons per hour, with an underflow concentration of 57.3% of solid by weight of a copper tailing with the following properties Solid density
Based on solids projections and design criteria for Gravity Belt Thickeners (GBTs) and Rotary Drum Thickeners (RDTs), it is estimated that 14 units of either type of thickening equipment will be required.

gravity thickening of sludge to activated sludge, and to compare results with those obtained by Kos  for water treatment sludge. 2) to develop curves for the evaluation of thickening of activated sludge. 3) to show the effect that temperature has on the per formance of a continuous gravity thickener and secondary Sedimentation basins.
from a liquid stream by gravity settling. The primary purpose of thickening is to increase the solids concentration of the feed stream. Gravity settling is aided by addition of chemicals called flocculants. The inlet stream going to a thickener generally is called feed or
The design of the Gravabelt174; has been refined to incorporate features developed by Komline Sanderson over the course of many years as a gravity belt thickener manufacturer The patented conical shaped Roto Kone174; High Rate Drainage System uses the full length of the belt for higher efficiency. Provides increased drainage, flexibility, and higher loadings.
Gravity Thickening Thickening is the process by which biosolids are condensed to produce a concentrated solids product and a relatively solids free supernatant. Thickening wastewater solids reduces the volume of residuals, improves operation, and reduces costs for subsequent storage, processing, transfer, end use, or disposal.
The basic operation of the gravity thickener is described in this lesson, focusing on the theory of operation, components found in.a typical thickener, and the parameters which must be understood in optimizing the opeation of the thickener. Attention is given to mathematics concepts Which are used in.
Gravity thickeners are designed for most applications involving sludge thickening. Solids are thickened by gravity, then collected at the bottom of the basin and raked to a collection sump for removal. The clarified effluent exits over the weir plates and out of the basin.

HOW THICKENERS WORK. Clean water rises to the top of the Thickener and overflows a peripheral weir into a collection launder. Once collected in the overflow launder, clean water exits through a single flanged outlet and can flow via gravity to a water storage tank or clean water pond for reuse.
A well designed thickener provides storage and equalization, and reduces the costs associated with de watering. This design is intended for secondary, biological, or flocculated solids which are more fluidized and have lower densities than primary wastewater and heavy industrial sludge.
Many times a pulp standing without agitation will not settle to as low a final density as when aided by movement of thickener rakes in actual operation our Laboratory developed a miniature thickener mechanism which is used in determining final density un173;der actual operating conditions.
