The evolution of the Siltbuster HB range of Lamella Settlement Tanks has resulted in the production of our new Siltbuster HB50M. Developed with a view to maximising performance within a small footprint and after feedback from municipal plant operators, the unit has been specifically designed for municipal applications and can be operated at flow rates up to and above 50 m³/h depending on the application.
It incorporates an increased sludge hopper volume and slope to give improved sludge thickening and storage volume. Utilising a single hopper allows for simplified desludging and operation. The unit also has a double discharge weir which enhances flow distribution between the lamella plates leading to improved discharge performance.
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 inspection and maintenance access to the top of the unit. As with all our settlement tanks, the HB50M units can be combined with our range of chemical dosing equipment to provide removal of fine, slow settling solids if required.
The HB50M is provided with dedicated lifting points and a removable skid, which incorporates fork lift 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.
