Clarifier Rental

MPS can supply portable clarifiers for assisting in projects with high dredge flow rates containing low solids concentration exceeding the hydraulic capacity design of a Geotube® container. MPS portable clarifiers can provide gross water and solids separation. The thicken underflow of the clarifier would be fed to the Geotube® containers enhancing higher solids retention and dryer final product.

MPS SmartFeed™ Portable Clarifier / Paste Thickener

Application Notes:

  • When a project requires temporary clarifier support to allow maintenance or repairs of a customer’s existing clarifier.
  • Capacity design: 2,000 gpm with 8″ feed line and 10″ overflow pipe.
  • Internal feed manifold design for velocity reduction with a residence volume of 17,400 gallons.
  • Deep cone design greatly increases solids over horizontal tank clarifier designs. Consolidation of solids enhanced by compression paddles in the cone, creating higher solids than horizontal tank design.
  • Design uses flume baffles for velocity reduction, removing the need for incline plates that clog and require frequent cleaning.
  • Computer controlled unloading of thickened solids at desired slurry density.
