Tube settlers

Freestanding Clarifier Tanks

AET provides standalone, modular tube settler units consisting of tube settler/ lamella clarifier packs, support structure, effluent troughs, sludge removal and tank. The tanks are available in round or rectangular shapes as well as stainless steel, FRP or PE material. For larger applications, AET can also provide 20 or 40ft container tanks. If required, the tanks can be equipped with an additional mixing chamber or tank for flocculation processes. If an application requires both the removal of settled and floating sludge the clarifier tanks can also include slotted scum removal pipes.

AET freestanding tanks are typically used to remove solids from industrial waste and process waters. In municipal applications, they are often used to remove solids from sand filter backwash water and other filtration processes.

AET tube settler standalone tanks are available in various sizes and can be connected in series or in parallel to match flow requirements. They can treat capacities from 15 to 400gpm (3 to 90 m3/h) per one unit. AET tube settler/ lamella clarifier units reliably achieve less than 0.1 NTU turbidity and TSS levels of less than 10mg/l. Also, the tank design is optimized for truck and container shipping.

Articles & Literature

Particles in water and wastewater accelerate towards the tank bottom aslong as the gravity force is bigger than the sum of all drag forces. The settling velocity of the particle is Vs = H/t. In reality the settling velocity is never constant as other particles, water turbulences and sludge accumulation hinder the settling process….
