Removing small contaminants from a fluid stream

A decantation tank can be used to remove small contaminants from a fluid stream. The contaminated water is injected in the center of the decantation tank. Due to the low upward flow, particles heavier than the fluid will sink while the clean water overflows from the edge of the decantation tank. Radial lamellae can be added to the tank to promote decantation of the particles.

Benefits:

  • No moving parts
  • Enables large throughputs
