thank you all for your input. we managed to diagnose the problem i.e. it appeared that the concentration of our flocculant was insufficient and due to the change in season the temperature also had a negative impact on our thickeners.

a thickening agent or thickener is a substance which can increase the viscosity of a liquid without substantially changing its other properties. edible thickeners are commonly used to thicken sauces soups and puddings without altering their taste; thickeners are also used in

smaller thickeners. flocculants can also be used to aid filtration. applications flocculation is employed for a variety of applications from mineral processing to purification of drinking water. this includes:concentrate and tailings thickeners in the mining industrywater treatment plantsfiltration aid
large tanks known as thickeners are used to separate fine suspended mineral particles from the process water producing a stream of clarified water from the top of the thickener overflow and a thick sludge of settled solids underflow from the bottom. flocculants are mixed with the solidliquid suspension in the entry feedwell of the thickener.

a coal preparation plant cpp; also known as a coal handling and preparation plant chpp coal handling plant prep plant tipple or wash plant is a facility that washes coal of soil and rock crushes it into graded sized chunks sorting stockpiles grades preparing it for transport to market and more often than not also loads coal into rail cars barges or ships.
description. the highrate thickeners became popular in the mid 1980's and are relatively newcomers to the sedimentation line of equipment. as already discussed previously thickeners are a major component in a plant layout and occupy large spaces which may be saved by introducing highrate machines. furthermore they are normally positioned far away from the center of the plant so to allow

in order to maximise the benefits obtained from flocculating agents when used as settling aids in high rate and conventional thickeners it is often necessary to dilute the thickener feed prior to flocculant addition. in some cases no flocculation at all is possible unless dilution water is used. the most common method of diluting thickener feed has been to recirculate some of the thickener

flocculation and coagulation treatment chemicals are used in effluent wastewater water treatment processes for solids removal water clarification lime softening sludge thickening and solids dewatering.. coagulants neutralize the negative electrical charge on particles which destabilizes the forces keeping colloids apart.
dynamic thickening is mainly used on lightweightbetter suited to small water treatment plants and a resistant floc is required because unlike screens and gbt the rotating unit applies a certain amount of stress to flocculated sludge. therefore these drums tend to be used on thicker sludge 710 g
