Selected Products for High Rate Clarification

Solids Contact

This high-rate system combines optimized flocculation, internal and external solids recirculation, thickening in two conjoined vessels to maximize hydraulic loading and treatment efficiencies. The proprietary blend of energy input and high volume solids recirculation reduces waste volumes and results in rapid settling operation and high quality treated water.

Ballasted Floc

The Ballasted Floc process is a compact, conventional-type water clarification system that utilizes microsand as a seed for floc formation. The microsand provides surface area that enhances flocculation and acts as a ballast or weight. The resulting sand ballasted floc display unique settling characteristics, which allow for clarifier designs with high overflow rates and short retention times. These designs result in system footprints that are between 5 and 20 times smaller than conventional clarification systems of similar capacity.
