The separation of sludge in recirculation aquaculture systems can be enhanced and made more economical with the TUBEdek lamella separators. A TUBEdek installation results in a plant with a smaller foot print compared to more traditional methods of settlement.
Sludge, sand and silts in surface water, chemical precipitation and flocculation form solids which have to be removed. The most economic process to remove this pollution is parallel plate sedimentation.
TUBEdek lamella clarifiers base on this physical principle. They consist of single profiles, which are assembled to a module forming several adjacent tubes and multiple sedimentation planes. This design increases the sedimentation area by a factor of 6 to 15 per square meter footprint. Using TUBEdek tube settlers therefore decreases costs by being able to build smaller tanks.
Flexibility for all different applications
Our different tube settler types enable optimized sewage treatment processes. By choosing different tube lengths and heights and by varying the inclination angle, TUBEdek settlers can be adjusted to all kinds of process requirements and tank geometry.
Please use our long experience and application know-how and ask for support in designing your clarifier or sedimentation tank.
