    Alfa Laval - AS-H Belt Thickener

    How it works. Alfa Laval AS-H Belt Thickener is a gravity belt thickener that works on the principle of separating liquid from solids by gravity drainage through a slowly rolling belt cloth. It uses a patented sludge polymer mixing valve with an adjustable lever arm that is set at approximately 70% open to ensure sufficient turbulent sludge/polymer mixing.

    Thickeners and clarifiers use slowly rotating rake arms to separate solid particulate. A liquid feed with suspended solids is fed into a tank with a diameter of 5 to 500 feet. As the particles settle, angled rake arms move the concentrated slurry toward the center of the tank, where it is removed.

    Thickening is a process where a slurry or solid-liquid mixture is separated to a dense slurry containing most of the solids and an overflow of essentially clear water (or liquor in leaching processes). The driving force for the separation is gravitational, where the differences in phase densities drive the separation of the solids and liquid.

    Thickening commonly produces sludge solids concentrations in the 3% to 5% range, whereas the point at which sludge begins to have the properties of a solid is between 15% and 20% solids. Thickening also implies that the process is gravitational, using the difference between particle and fluid densities to achieve the compaction of solids.

    Gravity Thickening - AccessEngineering

    With nitrification, gravity thickening of mixed sludges became difficult due to zero dissolved oxygen in the thickener, which allowed nitrates to be broken down, nitrogen to be released, and the sludges to float rather than be thickened. Larger facilities then used gravity thickening for primary sludges and DAF for secondary biological sludges.

    The Lamella® clarifier works when a solid/liquid stream that has been flocculated, enters a tank, and flows upward between a pack of inclined plates. The solids fall to the plate surface, where they slide by gravity down to a sludge collection hopper. The clarified effluent flows through orifice holes and exits the top of the settler.
