Vertical silos are based on the static discharge standard and the natural settling of suspended solid particles. During the spillage in the decanters, the solid particles (sludge) sink to the bottom of the structure, while the clean water goes to the drainage system at the top and is discharged into a special tank or pit (clean water tank). The sedimentation of the sediment formed at the bottom of the silos is accelerated by the use of a polyelectrolyte (flocculant), special design and dimensions press on the sediment and create a water pond that guarantees the desired thickness of the sludge. The shape of the vertical silo, in direct proportion between the cone and the cylinder above it, has been developed thanks to our experience in filtering wastewater. The degree of deflection of the cone increases the thickness of the sludge and the top roller can be used as an extra storage space on the other hand.
Horizontal troughs are ideal for large water flows. They often have a limited height and are provided with an upper sludge thickening system. The medium or large variants of horizontal tykes do not corrode, the large one being made of concrete.
When to Use a Horizontal Tıkner
A width of 24 meters for the upper section of the horizontal dredge thickener series. When vertical silos, which are often needed, reach a height of 9 meters, we recommend this type of thickener.
In cylindrical screw structures, the tensile stresses created in the silo body by the stored material are compensated by post-tensioning. In this way, concrete surfaces and bolometers are reduced and the process is made more cost-effective. Construction times are shorter. Thus, maintenance costs are also reduced.
