Leopold® Clari-VAC® System

Leopold® Clari-VAC® Floating Sludge Collector is used to remove sludge solids that have settled in rectangular secondary clarifier sedimentation tanks. Operating on the basic principles of buoyancy and siphon, collection headers on the Clari-VAC® system “vacuum” the solids that have naturally settled and compacted on the tank floor. Sludge is then siphoned into a collection trough where it is pumped to waste or returned to the process as activated sludge.

Used in:
Secondary clarification tank
