The Siltbuster HB40R Settlement Unit is normally operated at flow rates of up to 40 m³/h and can be combined with our range of chemical dosing equipment to provide removal of fine, slow settling solids.
The HB40R 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 and a side access walkway is available to provide access to the top of the unit.
The HB40R is provided with lifting eyes and a removable skid, which incorporates forklift slots. The skid allows operation of the unit on solid ground and does not require a concrete slab. For permanent installations, the unit can be provided with feet and bolt holes rather than a skid.
