H+E’s range of Tube Settlers are lamella clarifiers that provide highly efficient settlement of flocculated solids in applications where the volume of sludge accumulated is relatively large. This is where conventional lamella clarifiers really struggle because of their quite small sludge collection cones.
Tube Settlers have provided efficient settlement of suspended solids for more than 30 years and, in that time, have proved their worth many times over.
They are available in a wide range of sizes, for flow rates from approximately 5 to 40m3/h. If your flow rate is higher than that, you can simply use more than one Tube Settler, and divide the flow accordingly.
The Tube Settler tanks are normally made from shot-blasted and welded mild steel, coated with epoxy paint to a very high specification. However, other materials of construction such as stainless steel or concrete can also be used. There are many tube settlers still in good condition and successfully operating after more than 25 years in use.
For smaller units, we can easily supply a Tube Settler with an integral sludge collection tank; again there are many such units in operation for smaller flow plants.
