radial suction-type clarifier – SV clarifier
The SV clarifier is a flat bottom structure. The sludge settles at the bottom of the device and is suctioned (by level difference) by vertical tubes located along a radius to a trough from which they are sent via a siphon to the recirculation pit.
- The SV clarifier is standardized for diameters from 25 to 52 m
- More economical clarifier due to its circular shape and flat bottom design
- Shorter sludge contact time: peripheral sludge suction prevents excessive contact time
- Limited maintenance on suction tubes
