Flocculating clarifier


Ovivo’s Clariflocculator provides flocculating, settling and solids removal in a single, dependable unit. Counter rotating paddles gently mix flocculant with feed streams to form floc that settles in the clarifier rather than in downstream filters.

The Clariflocculator reduces chemical consumption and costs for multiple tanks and piping. The dual counter rotating drives and paddles allow low tip speeds while utilising the full volume of the well, which promotes interparticle contact and agglomeration.

Ovivo is one of the world’s leading providers of large-diameter slow rotating drives, with over a quarter of a century of industry experience. We specialise in producing long-lasting durable solutions, with trouble-free installation and limited maintenance. Our aftermarket support and customer service will ensure that your equipment continue to exceed expectations for its entire life. Some of the key features and benefits of our Clariflocculator include:

  • Trouble free installation
  • Long lasting durable design
  • Dependable drive unit that offers low operation and maintenance
  • Aftermarket support and customer service.

Specially designed counter rotating paddles

Ovivo’s Clariflocculator features multiple, specially designed, counter rotating paddles that gently and thoroughly mix flocculant with feed streams. These paddles create eddies, or vortexing, on their trailing edge, which enables complete energy distribution without localized shear. The result is that the floc is mixed, rather than torn apart, allowing it to settle in the Flocculating Clarifier, with reduced chemical consumption and expense, rather than on downstream filters. Settled sludge is then raked to the center of the unit by rake arms drive by one of the dual drives to be removed from the system. This design is particularly well suited to bioflocculation and for light to medium strength flocs. Other designs that utilise offset, high speed, non-concentric mixers can create localised high velocities, potential floc destruction, and poor volume usage.
