Both flocculants were efficient in thickening by batch sedimentation, allowing water recycling in the range of 70-90% with turbidity less than 100 NTU and the production of sediment with static

More### How to Size a Thickener Mineral Processing & Metallurgy

Knowing how to size a thickener and determine the capacity required to handle a pre-determined tonnage of a certain pulp, by overflowing a clear solution and obtaining the desired pulp density of thickener discharge, depends upon the settling rate of that particular pulp. The settling rate of any pulp is easily determined by simple laboratory tests such as outlined below: Laboratory Test

A design method for thickeners and clarifiers known as the batch flux curve technique was developed over 20 years ago, but still is not well-known in design and operating circles. An informal survey of major clarifier and thickener manufacturers found that none of the firms surveyed use this method for sizing and maximizing operating conditions.

The batch settling test is an important method for the sizing of the industry continuous thickeners and the data analysis of the testing is based on the Wilhelm and Naide's theory, by which the Unit Area can be decided with an approximate expression of settling velocity and solids concentration. The velocities corresponding to the different solid concentrations can be determined through the
