Metso Outotec is launching Reactorwell – a new generation feedwell – for maximizing thickener and clarifier performance while minimizing flocculant consumption and bringing significant operational cost efficiencies.
The first-class feed system features high solids retention and mixing efficiency. It eliminates feed short-circuiting and offers low shear for ideal floccule growth and even discharge symmetry. The new feed system provides optimum feed conditioning for thickeners and clarifiers. Thanks to its many benefits in addition to low flocculant usage, the Reactorwell is part of Metso Outotec’s sustainable portfolio.
“The Reactorwell enables a big leap forward in thickener and clarifier performance as it utilizes maximum settling area due to its high exit symmetry. 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,” says Brian Berger, Vice President, Thickeners and Clarifiers.
The Reactorwell is easy to maintain due to its intelligent design and modularity. It consistently achieves high unit area throughput and the improved Autodil performance minimizes the need for pumped dilution, leading to lower total cost of ownership.
