Tube settler systems are an inexpensive solution for drinking water and wastewater plants to increase treatment capacity, reduce new installation footprints, improve effluent water quality, and decrease operating costs.
Brentwood tube settlers consist of a series of sloped, tubular channels and structural wave sheets that reduce settling distance and combine to form an increased effective settling area. Smaller, typically unsettleable floc particles must only fall a short vertical distance to encounter the tube surface where they accumulate and coalesce, forming larger, denser particles capable of settling to the basin floor.
Applications:Tube settlers can be used in both drinking water and wastewater applications as an inexpensive method of upgrading new and existing treatment plant clarifiers and sedimentation basins to improve performance and reduce the solids loading on downstream filters. Additional applications include ballasted flocculation, membrane and desalination pretreatment, resin recovery, secondary and tertiary wastewater treatment, and phosphorous removal.
