The RT Unit is filled with effluent. The turbine mixer is started and Reactant Powder is added. After (5) minutes of mixing a large floc will form. The mixer is then stopped and settling of the floc to the bottom of the tank occurs, usually in a couple of minutes.
Once the settling of the floc has occurred, draining and filtering begins. Clarified water from the upper area of the tank is drained first, followed by the floc. Filter media captures the floc, now sludge, allowing the clarified water through to a clean compartment. A discharge pump automatically transfers the fluids to sewer or recycling vessel.
An automated conveyor advances the filter media and sludge as needed. This usually requires only 5 feet of filter media. An included self-tipping sludge gondola captures the filter media and sludge for disposal. The sludge dries to a cake, without need of a filter press. The process is now complete. The water is ready for reuse, or discharge to sewer. The sludge can be disposed of to landfill.
