Primary Clarification


Primary Clarification

In primary clarification, a portion of the suspended solids and organic matter is removed from the wastewater. This removal is usually accomplished with physical operations such as sedimentation.

The effluent from primary clarification will ordinarily contain organic matter and have notable BOD. The principle function of primary clarification is to be a precursor to secondary clarification.

Following primary clarification, the treated water is suitable for many agricultural and industrial uses. However, it will require further treatment to be suitable for municipal uses.

WesTech’s name is synonymous with innovative sedimentation solutions for primary clarification. WesTech’s vast experience, testing, and research of the clarification process provides clear effluent, increased overflow rates, and thicker underflow concentrations.
