The Siltbuster HB100R Settlement Unit is normally operated at flow rates of up to 100 m³/h and can be combined with our range of chemical dosing equipment to provide removal of fine, slow settling solids.
The HB100R comes with a single conical sludge hopper complete with a bottom rake (scraper), which makes the de-sludging process more effective across a wider range of process conditions. The solids (sludge) collected by the unit are easily removed by opening a gate valve, eliminating the need for the unit to be taken off line for emptying, beneficial for applications where continuous operation is required. An auto-desludging system can be provided with the unit, to provide timed pumping of sludge from the hopper.
The HB100R is provided as a hopper section and lamella section, which are joined on site using a bolted flange connection. Because of the design, these units are significantly higher than the units within the hire fleet and so a number of galvanised steel walkway options are available, which will give safe access for routine operation. A perimeter walkway with a stairway for access, and a central ‘up and over’ walkway to allow access to the rake drives is standard. A perimeter handrail is also included around the top brim of the units, allowing safe access should this be required for cleaning/maintenance duties.
