How to Calculate the Capacity of the Thickener

The capacity of the thickener is closely relate to its own specific parameters, which includes the diameter (generally put the innermost edge of the work area as the standard), the depth, and size of the settlement. These three factors have a series realationship with thecapacity of the thickener. The bigger the diameter is, the more solid

Thickener tanks may be constructed either from steel or concrete and may reach diameters of 120 meters and in earthen basins up to 180 meters. Most of the chemical process industries prefer the steel tanks construction since they may be elevated above ground level, allow inspection of the tank's floor for leakages and bring the underflow slurry

Description. The High-Rate thickeners became popular in the mid 1980's and are relatively newcomers to the sedimentation line of equipment. As already discussed previously Thickeners are a major component in a plant layout and occupy large spaces which may be saved by introducing high-rate machines. Furthermore, they are normally positioned far away from the center of the plant so to allow

Mar 03, 2016 The required depth of the thickener may be ascertained by computing the capacity of the thickening zone to contain a supply of solids equal to the total capacity of the tank for the number of hours required to thicken the pulp to the density required in the discharge, and to this depth adding an allowance for the lost space due to the pitch of the drag in the thickener; also from 1 to 2 ft. for depth of feed and a further allowance for storage capacity
