Siltbuster HB40 Settlement Unit
The Siltbuster HB40 Settlement Unit provides an effective settlement area of 40m2. It is a transportable settlement trap providing effective separation of suspended particulates from water. The unit is typically operated with either a 4” or 6” pump.
To provide effective recovery of suspended particles the Siltbuster HB40 is normally operated at flow rates of up to 40 m3/hr. However, when treating more rapidly settling solids or when operated in conjunction with a Siltbuster Chemical Dosing System the flow rate to be treated can be increased to the hydraulic capacity of (80 m3/hr).
The solids (sludge) collected by the unit settle within the units single 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 allowing continuous operation.
To minimise the risks associated with the over thickening of problematic/sensitive sludge there is an option with integral rake drive (HB40R) which slowly rotates, keeping the settled solids (sludge) on the move; thereby minimising the risk associated with the over consolidation of the sludge.
