This month we are focusing on the control of sludge blanket build up in Lamella Clarifiers. Lamella Clarifiers, also known as Inclined Plate. The efficient design of the SuperSettlerâ„¢ lamella-type plate clarifier utilizes lamella plates and shallow depth sedimentation to minimize the clarifier footprint. The Monroe lamella plate Vertical Clarifier is designed to provide low cost, efficient solids removal from a wide range of waste and process liquids. The inclined.

lamela The layout of the clarifier creates extra turbulence as the water turns a corner from the feed to the inclined plates. Free standing with a thickener scraper. This article needs more links to other articles to help integrate it into the encyclopedia.

The inlet stream is stilled upon entry into the clarifier. Plate Settler Technology Report.

In such a case it often needs to be transported to a disposal plant, and the cost of this transport depends on the volume and weight of the slurry. The main advantage of lamella clarifiers over other clarifying systems is the large effective settling area caused by the use of inclined plates, which improves the operating conditions of the clarifiers in a number of ways. The most common wastewater application for lamella clarifiers is as part of the tertiary treatment stage.


For the treatment of potable water the overflow from the lamella clarifier will require further treatment to remove organic molecules as well as disinfection to remove bacteria. Design Processes and Applications for Engineers.

Views Read Edit View history. The and monitors provide an exceptionally simple and reliable method of detecting the sludge blanket level in clarifiers. Advice on sensor selection is available by contacting our Sales Engineers.

Treatment process selection for particle removal. Parallel Plate Settlers Report. Next Post Movember Challenge: Twort’s water supply 6th ed. A lamella clarifier or inclined plate settler IPS is a type of settler designed to remove particulates from liquids.

Where overflow rate is a measure of the fluid loading capacity of the clarifier and is defined as, the influent flow rate divided by the horizontal area of the clarifier. What is the headloss through a Lamella system? Green, late editor, Robert H.

Standard clarifier design has the effluent entering at the bottom of the inclined plates, colliding with the sludge sliding down the plates.

Which is dependent on concentration, flow rate, particle size distribution, flow patterns and plate packing and is defined by the following equation.

Lamella Plate Clarifier | Hydro International

American Water Works Association. The retention time is the average time that a particulate remains in the clarifier. The absence of mechanical parts results in a safer working environment, with less possibility for injury. The turbidity is a measure of cloudiness.


For example, if the fluid being put through the lamella clarifier comes from a heavy industrial plant it may require post-treatment to remove oil and grease especially if the effluent is going to be discharged to the environment. In either of these cases the overflow requires post-treatment such as an anthracite-sand filter to prevent the algae from spreading downstream of the lamella clarifier.

Retrieved 13 October They are often employed in primary water treatment in place of conventional settling tanks. At the bottom of the vessel a hopper or funnel collects these particles as sludge.

Some possible design characteristics include:. This is an important post-treatment as the underflow slurry is often not able to lammella recycled back into ,amella process. A flocculation tank with stirrer can also be added to allow chemical dosing.

These chemicals optimise the settling process and cause a higher purity of overflow water by ensuring all smaller solids are settled into the sludge underflow. This area of increased turbulence coincides with the sludge collection point and the flowing water can cause some re suspension of solids, whilst simultaneously diluting the sludge.
