Company says technology will improve efficiencies

Metso Outotec has launched the Metso Outotec Reactorwell, a new generation feedwell for maximising thickener and clarifier performance while minimising flocculant consumption to improve operational efficiencies.

The company said the new feed system would feature high solids retention and mixing efficiency and eliminate short-circuiting. Additionally, it would provide "optimum feed conditioning for thickeners and clarifiers."

Brian Berger, vice president, Thickeners and Clarifiers at Metso Outotec, said the Reactorwell would enable "a big leap forward in thickener and clarifier performance" as it utilises maximum settling area due to its "high exit summary."

"It also provides improved overflow clarity as well as higher underflow density. Additionally, the Reactorwell allows better thickener operability with an improved response to process changes," Berger said.
