Enduratank’s Clarification Tanks are used for the continuous mechanised removal of suspended solids or solid particles from a liquid. These plastic tanks, otherwise known as Conical Clarification Tanks or Clarification Cone Bottom Tanks are available in a range of sizes.
Primary (mechanical) treatment/Clarification is designed to remove gross, suspended and floating solids from raw sewage. It includes screening or a weir to trap solid objects and sedimentation by gravity to remove suspended solids. This level is sometimes referred to as “mechanical treatment”, although chemicals see Enduramaxx chemical dosing tanks are often used to accelerate the sedimentation process.
Primary treatment can reduce the BOD (biological oxygen demand) of the incoming wastewater by 20-30% and the total suspended solids by some 50-60%. Primary treatment is usually the first stage of wastewater treatment Enduramaxx Cone tanks make ideal Primary treatment tanks. Many advanced wastewater treatment plants in industrialized countries have started with primary treatment, and have then added other treatment stages as wastewater load has grown, as the need for treatment has increased, and as resources have become available.
