The new SKT separator models (photo) are square, made of plastic, glass-reinforced polymer, steel or stainless steel and can be optionally delivered with one or more flocculation tanks, agitators and rabble rakes and all necessary peripherals. Expansion by new modules is possible at any time. The modular design allows flexible responses to changes in process requirements. In comparison to conventional sedimentation tanks, the free-standing separators require a much smaller installation space — space savings of up to 90% are possible. Further savings result from lighter, smaller foundations and lower transport, installation and maintenance costs. Since sludge draining is done by hydrostatic pressure, usually no pumps are required, which helps save energy costs, says the company. Inside the tank, a TUBEdek parallel-plate pack ensures a reliable separation process. The great number of equidistant sedimentation levels of the chevron-shaped channels provides the system with a high hydraulic capacity and supports sludge removal. — Enexio Water Technologies GmbH, Herne, Germany
