sludge recirculation settler – Turbocirculator
Scraper settling tank with internal sludge recirculation by low-speed turbine

The Turbocirculator® is a flocculator- settler. It can be used as pre-settler. Due to the scraping, this product is mainly used in case of heavily loaded water.

The Turbocirculator® is characterized by the integration of the 3 following zones, without necessity of external pumping :

  1. Central zone = Recirculation zone
  2. Peripheral zone = Settling zone
  3. Bottom = Sludge collection

The sludge returns by scraping near the raw water inlet and can be partially recirculated for flocculation improvement (sludge contact).
