The Lamella® is the original inclined plate gravity settler. Introduced by Parkson in 1971, it has been the industry standard for this technology.
Inclined plate settling works by having a solid/liquid stream that has been flocculated enter a tank and flow upward between a pack of inclined plates. The solids fall to the plate surface, where they tumble by gravity down to a sludge collection hopper. The clarified effluent flows through orifice holes and exits the top of the settler.
Lamella EcoFlow® is a patent-pending design change that eliminates the area of interference at the bottom of the plates and allows for full utilization of the plate settling area. This translates to a capacity increase of 25% in the same footprint!
The Lamella® has been utilized in countless applications, including the following:
- Potable water clarification
- Industrial process water
- Sand filter backwash
- Metal finishing
