ANDRITZ thickening and clarification solutions are designed to achieve the highest production rates without compromising efficiency. For all counter-current decantation (CCD) plants: The new and improved ANDRITZ inter-stage mixing and dilution system for CCD circuits helps to reduce the footprint and consequently cut CAPEX while maintaining low operating costs. The innovative paste-thickener design facilitates highly clarified liquid recovery as well as maximum underflow densities.
ANDRITZ‘s supply philosophy is to present the user with the most effective and technically viable system. This is especially important when very high underflow densities are required. In cases like this, high-density or paste thickening technology can be used in combination with the various filtration technologies offered by ANDRITZ.
The benefits of the new and improved Evenflow feedwell are plain to see:
Dilution means to reduce the concentration of solute in a solution by simply adding more solvent. This dilution step guarantees a perfect solid-liquid ratio in the feed to enhance settling rate once flocculants are added. Flocculants are more effective once added to perfect solid-liquid ratio.
The optimum percentage of feed solids will ensure maximum flocculation and optimized solids loading (t/m²/day)
Consistent underflow quality
Efficient washing in CCD circuits
