What is Clariflocculator in Wastewater Treatment?
Clariflocculator is a combination of clarification and flocculationin a single tank. It has two concentric tanks where inner tank serves as a flocculation basin and the outer tank serves as a clarifier.
The water enters the Clariflocculators flocculator, where the flocculating paddles aid in the flocculation of the feed particles. The liquid flows radially upward in the clarifier zone as heavier particles sink to the bottom. The cleared liquid is released into the peripheral wash through a peripheral weir. The sludge is scraped to the bottom at the central weir and channelled to the sludge chamber, where it is dumped.
It is a cost-effective and necessary component of wastewater treatment plants and other raw water treatment facilities. The clarifiers come in a broad variety of forms, depending on the plant. Large circular open-air clarifiers are preferred in large-scale wastewater treatment plants.These clariflocculators are ideal for use in water treatment, waste treatment, and effluent treatment plants. These clariflocculators, which come in both centre and end driven types, are made up of concentric circular chambers.
Application Areas of Clariflocculators
- Municipal Water Treatment;
- Primary Treatment in ETP;
- Heavy Metal Removal.
Working principle of Clariflocculators
Coagulation, Flocculation, and Sedimentation.

Process flow for clariflocculators
The Clariflocculator is a single device that serves both the clarifier and the flocculator.
It is made up of two concentric tanks, with the inside tank serving as a flocculation chamber and the external tank as a clarifier chamber. The dosed water is metered into the flocculation chamber, where the paddle mechanics begin solid flocculation. Under the attractive energy constraint, the muck and overpowering strong particles fall to the base. The stores are dragged to the base focal pocket and freed. The typically clean water from the flocculation chamber flows outward in a radial pattern into the elimination chamber, where it is further prepared.
The process can also be illustrated as
It is a secondary treatment machine that may be used to treat both water and wastewater. In many treatment methods, a clarifier is the central component. Because a single unit covers a big area and up to 12 clariflocculators are utilized on a plant, the design must be both efficient and effective in order to justify the space. One unit conducts four operations, increasing the importance of the design.
Working of a clariflocculator_
1: The clariflocculator receives the water.
2: Feed solids flocculation is improved by using flocculating paddles.
3: Heavy particles sink to the bottom during this process.
4: In the clarifier zone, the remaining liquid flows upward.
5: The cleared liquid is then dumped into the peripheral wash through a peripheral weir.
6: After that, the sludge is directed through the sludge chambers and released.
