The PST Sediment separator is an efficient equipment for separating solid, non-liquid particles suspended in liquids. The product is mainly used in paper industries, sewage treatment plants and similar and are available in standard sizes from Ø200 to Ø360.
The duration of pumping interval, separating, and the spiral rotation is determined on a case by case basis depending on the particle properties and other conditions.
Fluid is pumped in through the inlet to the separator settling tank and is evenly distributed by using a baffle. Pumping in the intervals between five to ten minutes. When liquid is passed through the tank it runs through an overflow through the outlet. Separation takes place during the next five to ten minutes. Then start the dri-venheten and rotating spiral two to five minutes. The separated particles are carried out through the outlet. The tank can be drained through the valve.
