Siemens to Provide Clarification Technology in Denver
Siemens Water Technologies will provide secondary clarification systems for the Metro Wastewater Reclamation District's North Secondary Treatment Complex Improvements Project in Denver, according to a press release.
The plant upgrade will include 12 130-foot diameter Tow-Bro clarifier mechanisms for secondary treatment. The new clarifiers will improve performance over the existing organ pipe type clarifiers – specifically, improved energy dissipation and velocity profile control, improved flocculation, and even sludge withdrawal, particularly important under poor solids settling conditions.
The project is scheduled for completion in 2012.
