Primary and Secondary Clarification Systems
The water clarification process is integral to the pre-treatment of wastewater. Every wastewater treatment plant has primary and secondary clarifiers to separate settled solids from the wastewater. The primary clarification is sedimentation and is the first integral part of the process. On the other hand, the secondary clarification consists of a biological treatment process to return activated sludge.
Types of Clarification Systems
There are different types of clarification systems, including circular clarifiers, rectangular chain and scraper clarifier systems, and ballasted clarification. When choosing the right one for you, you need to consider the different factors, such as your budget.
