Application & Salient Feature
Parason Disc Thickener works as a gravity filter and does not require any barometric legs for creating a vacuum. It can be installed at a lower elevation. Stock enters into the inlet chamber and is directed in between two mesh-covered discs. The level difference between feeding and filtrate chambers provides the necessary hydraulic pressure difference for a water/solid separation. Water drains through the mesh.
The rotation of the disc has a dual-action. First, the thickened stock is conveyed into the discharge chamber. Secondly, it creates a 'rolling effect' of the stock lump on the disc surface, producing a clearing action. The mesh of the discs is cleaned by spray nozzles pipes.
