Inclined Plate Clarifier (IPC)

Effective, Compact Design for High Capacity Clarification Process

Inclined plate clarifier works when a solid/liquid stream that has been flocculated, enters a tank, and flows upward between a pack of inclined plates. The solids fall to the plate surface, where they slide by gravity down to a sludge collection hopper. The clarified effluent flows through orifice holes and exits the top of the settler.
