In a bridge support thickener, such as the one shown below, the rakes and drive mechanism are suspended from a bridge that spans the diameter of the tank. they are usually only economical for diameters of fewer than 100 feet.design of thickeners the thickening process takes place in a settling tank with long-enough solids retention time. for example in secondary clarifiers of activated sludge systems both clarification and thickening operations are carried out. due to the continuous removal of
thickening agent or thickener is a substance which can increase the viscosity of a liquid without substantially changing its other properties. edible thickeners are commonly used to thicken sauces, soups, and puddings without altering their taste; thickeners are also used in paints, inks, explosives, and cosmetics.. thickeners may also improve the suspension of other ingredients or emulsions macroscopic mass balance in a continuous thickener at steady state: classical me thods of thickener design. control variables QD cite Zc perturbation intermediate variables fig. variables in a continuous thickener. kona no.ll 2.1 mishlers method. the first equation to predict the capacity of aeach riser pipe is situated at the intersection of a v-plow and receives a continuous feed of sludge that returns to a sludge collection box near the center of the clarifier. this design is intended for secondary, biological, or flocculated solids which are more fluidized and have lower densities than primary wastewater and heavy industrial sludge.likewise, thickeners are often used for storage to facilitate the continuous feeding of downstream filters or centrifuges. historically thickeners were introduced to the mining industry in 1905 when the beneficiation of ores by froth flotation was invented in australia.

As a mineral solids processing unit operation, sedimentaspecific gravity differential between tion has been defined as the separation the solids and liquid phases of a suspension into a supernatant presence of the software permits the simulation of batch sedimentation and the design and simulation of continuous thickeners. for batch thickening, the initial and critical concentration and the height of the initial suspension have to be entered together with the parameters of the

It also offers a description of thickener operation performance based upon the proposed method. thickener operation figure shows a log-log relationship between underflow concentration and unit area at various
process of continuous sedimentation. It is employed mainly in design calculations to determine the required thickener area, the most important design parameter, and ultimately the maximum steady state underflow concentration that is possible for a given solids throughput. In addition, the capital cost ofa thickener design method for thickeners and clarifiers known as the batch flux curve technique was developed over years ago, but still is not well-known in design and operating circles. An informal survey of major clarifier and thickener manufacturers found that none of the firms surveyed use this method for sizing and maximizing operating conditions.the authors review the literature and discuss the application of methods to the design of thickeners for ilocculated metallurgical pulps. the use and evaluation of flocculents is described. experimental data show that design based upon laboratory settling data is acceptable. the economic aspect of design is also discussed. introduction for many years there has beenjan 04, 2019 most thickener design is based on a combination of batch and continuous bench-top testing. the irst step is typically the small scale ar test, where a slurry is allowed to settle over
