Settling of mineral and biological solids
Settling is a solid-liquid separation process commonly used in water treatment.
Static clarifiers are specially designed for biological processes such as secondary sedimentation. However, lamella clarifiers are designed for the separation of inorganic solids, usually in primary sedimentation.
The function of the clarifier is to separate the semi-heavy and heavy elements in suspension (sands, clays, silts), which are carried by the water and which damage the subsequent treatment, generating deposits in the hydraulic conduits, pipes and channels, abrasion in pump impellers and equipment.
The clarifiers manufactured in Toro Equipment’s facilities are designed for the separation of solids from water.
Useful in primary and tertiary treatment.
We have different models depending on the volume, the settling surface and type of solids
Toro Equipment’s Defender® and W-Tank® range of clarifiers are made of GRP.
The composite materials allow a long durability of the machines even in aggressive environments.
