LA-EDI

The Los Angeles Energy Dissipating Inlet, (aka. LA-EDI) was developed to address short circuiting issues common within the clarifier center well. The patented inlet design promotes flow impingement, enhances flocculation and minimizes short circuiting; the net result is the ability to handle higher flow rates through the clarifier basin. For more than 15 years, Kusters Water has been providing customers around the world with superior clarifier designs utilizing LA-EDI inlets.  LA-EDI designs are offered in two configurations.  Type I –Separate LA-EDI well, located within a feedwell. Typically installed on larger clarifiers >60ft.  Type II– Integral LA-EDI, which incorporates the feedwell baffles into one well. Typically installed on smaller clarifiers < 60ft.

  • Enhances flocculation of activated sludge particles
  • Improves formation of flocs when using polymers
  • Eliminates the “rat-holing” due to turbulence in area below the centerwell
  • Optimizes the separation and settling of suspended solids particles
  • Minimizes the carry-over or solids ordinarily transported by density currents
  • Enhances the uniform formation of sludge blanket
  • Increases treatment capacity over conventional “scooped” or “gated” EDI’s
