The Benefits of a Lamella Clarifier from Beckart Environmental

Lamella clarifier tanks from Beckart Environmental are the clarifiers of choice for countless businesses in industries such as metal finishing, heavy metals separation, phosphatizing, etc. An alternative to traditional settling tanks, lamella clarifiers feature slanted plates within the tank to maximize the effective settling area within the tank. Solids in the wastewater will collide with the plates and then fall to the bottom of the tank for easy collection and disposal.

If a lamella clarifier makes sense for your facility – for instance, if you have a varied solids content in your wastewater and solids that are small in size – you can benefit from the equipment in many ways. Advantages include:

  • Consistent compliance – Because of the efficiency of a properly sized lamella clarifier, achieving consistent compliance is easily attainable.
  • Space efficiency – This type of tank typically takes up far less space than a traditional clarifier, which makes it an excellent choice for facilities with square footage limitations.
  • Manufactured in-house – Because we manufacture these clarifiers in our 45,000-square-foot facility in Kenosha, WI, you get the benefits of manufacturer-direct pricing on a clarifier that is built to last with proper sand blasting and epoxy coating.

Plus, our clarifiers feature a dish bottom (hopper) design, which makes it easier to remove the settled sediment from the tank and clean the equipment. In addition to a clarifier, we can also supply whatever other equipment you need to treat the overflow or underflow streams, such as a batch filter press that will enable you to effectively dewater sludge.
