The term water clarifier as used in this text refers to a versatile water treatment unit which combines flocculation and coagulation, clarification and positive sludge removal in a single tank. Water clarifiers are very compact units which are being used in municipal and industrial water treatment for the removal of turbidity, algae, color, iron and silica; lime or lime-soda softening; magnesium precipitation; brine clarification; and waste water clarification with or without chemicals. Water clarifier units have found wide use in the sanitary field, providing high removals in the pre-treatment of sewage and in secondary sewage treatment through addition of coagulants.
