in a feed dilution system and method for a thickener or settling tank a feed pipe nozzle has an outlet opening or orifice configured to generate an initial stream of slurry from the feed pipe into an upstream end of a mixing conduit wherein the stream is extended from a first side of the mixing conduit to a substantially opposite second side in a first direction transverse to the mixing
that's why you can feed four people average servings on a lb of the stuff. read the why cook pasta in water and not the sauce discussion from the chowhound home cooking boiling food community. join the discussion today. a stage that is “yucky-sounding but wonderful” because the water “behaves like a sauce thickener binding
in cases where thickener feed dilution is required the slurry feed to the thickener is commonly diluted in the . thickener feed system. this improves both the mixing and contact of the solid particles with the flocculant in the thickener feed as contact and adsorption of those parti-cles is essential for flocculation to occur.
the best tool for that job is a stand mixer with a balloon whisk attachment or a hand-held mixer or egg beater. allegedly some intrepid souls with great upper body strength and endless stamina have hand-whipped aquafaba but it’s not generally recommended.
a self-diluting feedwell for a thickener or settling tank includes a delivery pipe for providing an influent feed stream of slurry a nozzle for directionally discharging the influent feed stream and an eductor structure including a launder zone for receiving the nozzle discharge a throat zone for creating a reduced pressure area for eduction of diluent into the launder zone and a discharge
thickeners often require dilution of the feed to improve settling rates and flocculant consumption. dilution systems that rely on specific gravity differential between the feed and supernatant are often limited. westech’s airlift™ dilution system uses an airlift pump to draw clarified water evenly from the thickener surface into the feedwell.
andritz thickening and clarification solutions are designed to achieve the highest production rates without compromising efficiency. for all counter-current decantation (ccd) plants: the new and improved andritz inter-stage mixing and dilution system for ccd circuits helps to reduce the footprint and consequently cut capex while maintaining low operating costs.
