Saving time and money is even more important these days. The Lamella Filter Tank saves both.
Tight timelines, slim budgets and project complexities put a lot of pressure on teams to find the most cost-effective and efficient solutions, especially for high-volume industrial plants. When it comes to water treatment, there is no room for error and there certainly isn’t room in the budget or the schedule for downtime. Innovative and cost-saving solutions are welcome.
The Lamella Filter Tank is a part of a full line of Fluid Solutions pump, tank and filtration units. It is designed to provide highly effective, yet flexible, solid removal capabilities for a wide range of waste streams. The best part? The footprint – and cost to your bottom line – is much smaller.
The Best of Both Worlds
The Lamella Filter Tank design combines the easy mobilization of a standard tank, used for temporary and portable fluid storage, with the flexibility and effectiveness of a vertical plate Lamella clarifier design, which allows for larger settling areas in a more compact footprint. It’s the best of both worlds – portable and efficient.
“It is an integrated, custom-designed liquid management system,” said Bart Ros, Senior product manager at United Rentals. “Our customers need solutions that help them keep downtime to a minimum but still achieve the same, if not more, productivity all within their budgets.”
The Ins and Outs
A Fluid Solution engineer can work with you to determine settling and flow rates for different sludge types ahead of installation. Once the system is installed, the water enters the Lamella Filter Tank through a flow breaker to reduce turbulence. This then passes through the lamella plates, where turbulence is further reduced and particles are allowed to meet each other. Flow then goes under the first weir, to retain any floating pollution that can be skimmed off and then over a second weir before discharge. The units have three sludge removal points to allow sludge to be pumped out without interruption to your process.
United Rentals’ lamella Filter Tank is versatile enough to be effective across a range of worksites and projects including refineries, chemical plants, construction dewatering, environmental remediation and pipeline.
Small but Mighty
A project of scale that could require a bank of separator tanks is no match for the lamella Filter Tank Insert. It’s fully modular and can accommodate flow rates of up to 150m³/h per unit so there’s no need to rent 5-6 settling tanks.
Teams are looking for cost-effective and time-sensitive ways to keep projects – and fluids – moving. Switching to an innovative and custom solution like the Lamella Filter Tank not only saves project money, but keeps downtime to a minimum. Fewer pieces of equipment onsite and faster turnarounds free up capital for other projects or contingencies.
Streamlined and Safe
The lamella Filter Tank is just one example of an innovative solution that puts productivity and safety at the forefront. A streamlined process, fewer equipment pieces on the site and a team of experts overseeing installation, delivers not only a more efficient solution, but a safer one as well. Also, consulting with experts regarding specific circumstances, applicable rules, and regulations particular to your site and to your situation is always recommended.
Now more than ever it’s crucial to think outside the box for innovative, cost-saving solutions.
