The separation results vary and largely depend on the feed water quality and types of contaminants contained. The waste water enters the ClearFox® lamella clarifier through the inlet channel at the top and flows to the bottom of the separator.
The water is then led back to the top and in so doing, the water flows through the lamellas, onto which the solid particles settle. The treated water continues its journey to the top and reaches the outlet by passing a weir. The solid particles (sludge) on the lamellas, slide down the lamellas and are collected in the sludge funnel.
The sludge is then exported at intervals, as defined in the control programme. Installed alarms inform of any malfunction (when the sludge hopper is full or the settlement process is failing). This settlement process is highly effective and operates with minimal maintenance.
