We Offer a Wide Variety of Wastewater Clarification Systems

Although wastewater treatment systems vary widely, one essential component that most of them include is some sort of clarifier. Wastewater clarification systems work to separate contaminants from wastewater so that it can be reused or discharged into a sewage system. At Beckart Environmental, we offer a wide variety of wastewater clarifiers for industrial and municipal facilities, ensuring that we can meet virtually any special requirements you may have.

The two general categories of wastewater clarification systems are:

Sedimentation Tanks

Throughout history, people have used the principle of sedimentation to remove contaminants from water. This tried-and-true method works by allowing particles to settle out of a wastewater mixture. In a wastewater sedimentation tank, contaminants fall to the bottom of the tank, where they can be removed, and clarified water exits the tank separately. Lamella wastewater clarification systems are unique in that they also include inverted plates that help prevent solid materials from rising within the tank, increasing the overall effectiveness of the equipment.

Flotation Tanks

Compared to sedimentation tanks, dissolved air flotation (DAF) and induced air flotation (IAF) tanks essentially take the opposite approach. Tiny bubbles are introduced into the wastewater before it reaches the clarifier, and these bubbles attach themselves to solid particles, raising the waste to the surface of the tank. A skimmer pulls the solids off the surface of the clarifier and into the sludge-holding section of the equipment. Clarified water then leaves the tank through an underflow/overflow weir.
