Now we’re raising the standard by introducing the next-generation Lamella® EcoFlow™ that utilizes 100% of the clarification area.
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 24, 2012
Building on the success of Lamella® as the industry’s first gravity plate settler, Parkson engineers researched ways to maximize usage of the system’s settling area and improve the flow rate.
“Forty-two years ago, Parkson set the industry standard for inclined plate settlers,” said Madhavi Batchu, Product Manager for Lamella®. “Now we’re raising the standard by introducing the next-generation Lamella® EcoFlow™ that utilizes 100% of the clarification area.”
Currently, Parkson’s Lamella® and imitation plate settlers manage to utilize only 80% of the available clarification area, because the design of the feed opening disrupts proper settling at the bottom of the plate. The new design, however, changes the way the feed enters the inclined plate, eliminating the zone of interference.
The result is that customers who choose to install the new Lamella® EcoFlow™ system or upgrade their existing Lamella® equipment can expect to process 25% more flow than a competitive settler with the same settling area.
“More of our customers are under pressure to reduce the overall footprint of their facilities, while at the same time increase capacity,” said Mark Turpin, Vice President of Strategic Marketing and Business Development at Parkson. “Lamella® EcoFlow™ addresses both of these critical needs.”
For existing Lamella® operators, the retrofit program provides a low-cost opportunity to achieve higher-quality effluent and better sludge concentration without causing a major disruption to the system.
“In a crowded field of manufacturers who wish to capitalize on a product by simply copying our old designs, this patented new process enhancement gives Parkson's trademark Lamella® a shot in the arm in the market,” said Rob Kershner of Kershner Environmental Technologies.
