Enviro Concepts Lamella Clarifier is a compact, high surface area Plate Clarifier engineered for most applications in wastewater clarification. It is engineered for high flow rate sedimentation and settling of flocculated wastewater streams. Our units are pre-engineered, pre-assembled and factory tested, ensuring reliable operation, minimising site installation and start-up time.
High flow rate sedimentation and settling in a Lamella Clarifier works by having a flocculated liquid/solid stream (e.g. raw wastewater, activated sludge mixed) flow upwards between inclined Lamella Plates. The flocculated solids tumble down to the plate surface by gravity and to a sludge collection hopper. The clarified water overflows through a weir that exits the top of the lamella clarifier.
Lamella clarifiers are utilized in a wide range of industries to treat industrial waste water where solid sizes and loading are variable.
- Industrial waste water treatment
- Municipal waste water treatment
- Biological purification
- Pulp and paper industry
- Treatment of effluent in metal finishing
- Thickening in mining related industries
It’s application includes
- Wash Bays for Cars and Trucks
- Mine Vehicles and Equipment Wash Downs
- Mechanical and Panel Beating Workshops
- Industrial Wash Processes
- Sea Water Desalination
- Storm and Ground Water Treatment
- Restaurants and Hotels
- Grease Trap Waste Treatment
- Food Industry Wastewater
- Activated Sludge Systems
- Sludge Thickening
Enviro Concepts Lamella Clarifiers are engineered to efficiently remove solid particles from liquids and are a great substitute for traditional settling tanks. Inclined (lamella) plates provides the large settling area over a small footprint.
Lamella clarifiers can handle a feed water concentration of up to 10,000 mg/L of oil and grease, and up to 4,000 mg/L of suspended solids. Under standard operating conditions and with addition of coagulants and flocculants, lamella clarifiers can achieve more than 90% suspended solids removal. Lamella clarifiers have no moving parts which means that other than the inlet and sludge pumps, there is minimal energy input required.
