Suction Pipe Clarifiers are designed to provide quick and uniform removal of return-activated sludge (RAS) by utilizing collection pipes located at multiple points along each arm. Suction is generated by a differential head from the partially submerged well located at the center of the clarifier.

Each suction pipe is equipped with a return flow valve that controls the rate of sludge return. By rotating into the center sludge well, the pipe clarifier ensures that all sludge exits through a vertical steel pipe located at the center.

  • Each suction pipe clarifier is customized to your needs as the size and quality of pipes are selected according to your RAS flow rates.
  • Built to minimize “short-circuiting” which reduces costly downtime.
  • Easy to change out sludge seals and visual indications of functionality ensure that maintenance and upkeep are minimized on the operators.
