Lamella settlers are modern and high duty apparatuses for solid separation from liquids. The lamella settler is built from a Î (30°...60°) sloped plates or profiled cartridges. The units are characterized by extended settling surface, compact design and serious overall dimensions reduction in relation to conventional solutions. Significant shortening of settling distance enables separation of small particles. Sedimentation as a separation process is stimulated by gravitational force in lamella settlers and runs in laminar flow pattern between parallel plates, so maximal height of settling is reduced to vertical distance between plates.
