The effect of shear on gravity thickening: Pilot scale ...

2010-7-15  A previous study (Gladman et al., 2005) showed that dewatering of calcite flocculated under the conditions used here was improved at shear rates up to approximately 10–12 s −1. In that case, the shear was applied to a batch settling characterisation of a suspension in a Couette device and the effects on continuous thickening of sheared material predicted from the resulting rheological parameterisations.

Optimisation of thickener performance: incorporation

The key aim of this research is to quantify the effect of shear on dewatering and in particular, the enhancement of dewatering in a thickener induced through shear. The research objective is to develop a process, in which simple batch settling tests can be performed, the results analysed and utilised to predict the full scale thickener performance that correctly takes dynamic shear effects into account.

[PDF] THE APPLICATION OF ZEOLITE IN THICKENERS

Thickener is the most important device that separates water from concentrate. Outlet water from thickener overflow must comply with the standards of transparency and the level of toxins. One way to reduce the hardness of water is ion replacement. In this paper we use the zeolite powder (coagulant) in combination with materials such as bentonite powder (coagulant aid), Fe C l 3 and poly ...
