Inclined Plate Clarifiers

Flow rates up to 300 GPM, based on .25 GPM per sq.ft. of projected plate surface area*

Hydro Quip’s Inclined Plate Clarifiers are designed and manufactured to provide for the precipitation and separation of suspended solids. Our design employs the use of a series of plates inclined at an angle of 45° or 55°. This specialized design allows the unit to perform all of the functions of a conventional solids contact clarifier at a fraction of the space and cost.

All our products are customizable. Size, dimensions, material of construction, plate spacing and angle of repose can be altered to suit your application.

To treat chemical and mechanical emulsions or dissolved solids, a Mix and Flocc Tank is available as an option. The chemicals in the tank will precipitate the emulsions and dissolved solids, while the mixers keep them in suspension before entering the clarifier. This process makes removal more efficient.
