Tube Settler media is made up of PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) which is having a hexagonal shape and with an angle correction of 60 degrees. With having several tubular channels which combine to make a great settling area which enables the particle to settle at a depth that is basically less than the settling depth of the normal clarifier.
Highly used in sewage treatment plants to settle out the suspended solids depending upon the application the total suspended solids can vary from 50 to 500mg/l. Works on a high-ended sedimentation basis this tube settler media will ensure the proper settling of the suspended solids which are there in the sewage treatment plant process by giving out its maximum efficiency.
1. What is the difference between a tube settler and a lamella clarifier?
Tube settlers which are also known as plate settlers or lamella clarifiers are used to increase settling performance within a sedimentation basin. Tube settlers consist of inclined plates that provide a settling surface area for particles in wastewater and drinking water
2. What is a secondary clarifier in wastewater treatment?
A secondary clarifier is to separate biological floc from the treated liquid waste stream. Secondary clarifiers are most often discussed in conjunction with suspended growth biological wastewater treatment systems.
