Lamella Clarifier is popularly known as tilted plate separator. They are designed to provide more settling area to the suspended particles in water. In Lamella Clarifier an appropriate number of inclined plates are arranged in a particular pattern to allow the influent distribution and self cleaning of the settled solids. The Lamella Clarifier can be constructed in counter current, cross current or co current system based on the application.
The suspended solids present in the water settle on the inclined plates and slip gradually in the sludge collecting hopper bottom. The hopper bottom is periodically drained to flush out the suspended solids.
Advantage of Lamella Clarifier
- Low space requirement
- Low time to start up the system
- Low retention time
