Lamella Clarifier

A lamella clarifier is a type of settler designed to remove particulates from liquids. It is often used in primary water treatment in place of conventional settling tanks.

Unlike conventional clarifiers, lamella clarifiers use a series of inclined plates. These inclined plates provide a large effective settling area for a small footprint. The inlet stream is stilled upon entry into the clarifier; solid particles begin to settle on the plates and begin to accumulate in collection hoppers at the bottom of the clarifier unit. The sludge is drawn off at the bottom of the hoppers and the clarified liquid exits the unit at the top over a weir.

Lamella clarifiers can be used in a range of industries, as well as to treat groundwater, industrial process water and backwash from sand filters. Lamella clarifiers are also used in municipal wastewater treatment. The most common application is as part of the tertiary treatment stage.
