High Rate Thickeners are used by the aggregate and mining industries, as well as environmental contractors, to recover approximately 85% of water for reuse. This high level of water recovery keeps water consumption at sustainable levels, as well as drastically reduces the slurry volume reporting to waste ponds.
High Rate thickener High Density thickeners Paste thickeners Ultra high rate thickeners Our units are available in a variety of sizes starting from 3ft diameter pilot scale to 300ft diameter. We have standard off the shelf designs available.
3. Mechanical and maintenance issues. Sometimes problems that originate from failures in thickener components can occur. The most common are described below. Mechanical issues. Due to specific events of high torque as well as corrosion of the rake mechanism, the thickener gradually loses its torque capacity.
Results showed that 6 stages would be required to achieve more than 99% soluble metal recovery using HRT thickeners . C.C.D.
