Gravity Sludge Thickeners

Gravity thickeners are designed for most applications involving sludge thickening. Solids are thickened by gravity, then collected at the bottom of the basin and raked to a collection sump for removal. The clarified effluent exits over the weir plates and out of the basin.

Kusters Water Thickeners are offered in sizes ranging from 5′ to 150′ in diameter. Every unit includes a rake drive unit designed in accordance with the current AGMA standards to ensure the absolute highest quality and a minimum 20 year service life. Hydraulic overloads are recommended for all thickening applications, due to the increased accuracy, reliability and remote monitoring.

Optional Rake lift mechanism are available for high torque municipal and industrial applications.
