The Titan™ traction thickener processes very high throughputs in a single thickener and cost-effectively provides greater torque in large units.
When sizing a high-rate thickener, one factor that limits the size and throughput in the unit is the available torque. This is particularly true with center-driven, high-rate thickeners. The use of a peripheral drive, like that on the Titan™, takes advantage of the long ‘lever arm’ of the raking mechanism, instead of being limited by it like a center drive unit.
Experience in sizing, design, and operation of this type of thickener is critical. WesTech has the experience to successfully implement features such as:
