High rate thickener HR-THK

ANDRITZ Delkor (Pty) Ltd. utilizes modern engineering technologies

Thickeners are utilized in various solid/liquid separation processes in order to increase the density of a process stream. Feed solids concentration is the single most important variable affecting the sedimentation properties of given slurry.

ANDRITZ process engineering will determine the optimum percentage of feed solids for the specific application during laboratory or pilot plant test work. The optimum percentage of feed solids will ensure proper flocculation and achievement of maximum fluxes (t/m²/d).
