TUBEDEK® LAMELLA CLARIFIERS (TUBE SETTLERS)

COST SAVINGS BY SMALLER TANKS

TUBEdek® Lamella Clarifiers, also called tube settlers, are used for solids removal (sedimentation processes) in water and sewage treatment. TUBEdek® can be used in rectangular and in circular tanks.

Sludge, sand and silts in surface water, chemical precipitation and flocculation form solids which have to be removed. The most economic process to remove this pollution is parallel plate sedimentation.

TUBEdek® lamella clarifiers base on this physical principle. They consist of single profiles, which are assembled to a module forming several adjacent tubes and multiple sedimentation planes. This design increases the sedimentation area by a factor of 6 to 15 per square meter footprint. Using TUBEdek® tube settlers therefore decreases costs by being able to build smaller tanks.

Flexibility for all different applications

Our different tube settler types enable optimized sewage treatment processes. By choosing different tube lengths and heights and by varying the inclination angle, TUBEdek® settlers can be adjusted to all kinds of process requirements and tank geometry.
