Biosolids Technology Fact Sheet Gravity Thickening

Gravity thickener designs usually include circular tanks, 3-4 m (10-13 ft) deep and up to 25 m (82 ft) in diameter. The dimensions are based on prediction of settling due to gravity alone. To assist solids transport, gravity thickener bottoms are constructed with a floor slope between 1:6 and 1:3.

THICKENERS

THICKENERS. A thickener is an equipment structure used for the continuous gravity settling (sedimentation) of solids in suspensions. Suspension is fed into one or more basins or chambers and, whilst it is passing through, the solids settle out. The thickened solids are removed together with a portion of the liquid as thickened "underflow".

Thickeners McLanahan

Paste Thickeners achieve the highest possible solids concentration by gravity alone, providing maximum water recovery as high as 90% and discharging a mud with a yield stress greater than 150 Pa. Because of high percentage of solids in the mud, producers can greatly reduce the size of their settling ponds or tailings storage facilities.

Gravity Thickening SpringerLink

Thickening is defined as removal of water from sludge to achieve a reduction in moisture content of slurries. The resulting material is still fluid. Thickening is used at most wastewater treatment plants, as an economic measure, to reduce the volume of sludge or for greater efficiency in subsequent processes. Sludges are thickened primarily to ...

Paper: Understanding the Thickening Process

Abstract: The thickening process is the primary method of producing high solids slurries for the minerals industry. Thickener outputs can accommodate a range of tailings disposal options from low yield stress, easily pumped suspensions for disposal in conventional ‘wet’ tailings dams to more concentrated slurries for delivery to ‘dry disposal’ and backfill applications.
