|ABOVE GROUND SEPARATOR AND BAG FILTERS
When solids build up in the separator a
valve is open to the bag filters and solids are
transferred to the bag filters.
ABOVE GROUND SEPARATOR
The wastewater flows downward in the center inlet pipe and is discharged into the bottom of ABOVE GROUND SEPARATOR tank. A truncated conical
baffle ensures proper distribution of the incoming flow. The conical configuration of the baffle forces the flow downward, accelerating separation of the
solid particles by gravity. These particles continue down to the bottom as the direction of the liquid flow is turned upward. The upward gradient accelerates
the flotation process, forcing any lighter floating material to the top of the tank. Where it is skimmed off either continuously or intermittently. The clarified
liquid exits the ABOVE GROUND SEPARATOR through a screen diffuser then over another conical baffle and through the annular space between the
outlet pipe which surrounds the inlet pipe. The actual discharge point is several feel below the surface of the liquid level in the separator vessel. This
ensures that the clarified liquid will be free from floating and settling contaminants. The external outlet port is gravity flow through a 2 inch pipe connected
to the treatment/storage tank.
