Siltbuster HB10 Settlement Unit
The Siltbuster HB10 Settlement Unit provides an effective settlement area of 10m2. The unit is a transportable settlement trap providing effective separation of suspended particulates from water. The unit is typically operated with either a 1” or 2” pump.
To provide effective recovery of suspended particles the Siltbuster HB10 Settlement Unit is normally operated at flow rates of up to 10 m3/hr. However, when treating rapidly settling solids or when operated in conjunction with a Siltbuster Chemical Dosing System the flow rate can be increased up to the hydraulic capacity of the unit (20 m3/hr).
The solids (sludge) collected by the unit settle within the units hopper and are easily removed by the opening of a gate valve, eliminating the need for the unit to be taken off line for emptying, beneficial for applications where near continuous operation is required.
