Fine sand extraction with a lamella separator

The lamella separator as an example for ideal recovering of fine sand. Rinsing water is used for the wet-treatment of sand. The water contains large amounts of residual fine sand. The sand extraction offers the following advantages:

  • reduction of treatment losses
  • enhancement of the sand production
  • reduction of sludge during the water treatment
  • high storage yield

Functional description

The washing water which is polluted with fine sand and other dirt particles is pumped into the lamella separator. The clarifying area load was chosen so that only particles larger than a certain size a separated. Fine particles as for example clay leave the separator with the treated water.

The separated sand is collected in the sludge funnel and dewatered by a sieving plant.

Fine sand extraction with a lamella separator – an ideal solution!
