Clarifier Performance

Installation of upward flow clarifier screens offers a cheaper and quicker solution than most other options to the problems of overloaded or malfunctioning settlement tanks.

Reducing Suspended Solids Carry Over

The screens enhance natural settlement, trap rising solids and in hydraulic overload conditions will retain much of the active biomass that would otherwise be swept over the weir.

The Locker Clarifier Systems have been installed at biological waste water treatment works utilising percolating filters and activated sludge processes.
