World Water Works Ideal Clarifier™ is a Settling Plate Clarifier (SPC) designed to separate organic and inorganic solids from liquid. The solid material, which is denser than the liquid, falls under the influence of gravity to the base of the tank, which is conical, from where it is pumped away as a sludge. The basic system consists of rapid mixing and flocculation tanks, followed by an inclined plate section with a sludge hopper located underneath. The Ideal Clarifier configuration ensures laminar flow conditions, which results in hydraulic uniformity and high effluent quality. It permits great reduction in the space needed for clarification equipment.
