Turbulence-reducing Clarifier

William Baumgartner, Kochergin, Vadim

LSU AgCenter scientists have developed a clarifying device that separates solid particles from liquid suspensions. Turbulent eddies are not created when liquid enters the clarifier, which increases the separation efficiency by preventing solids from being carried over into the clear liquid. The design also allows solids to settle faster and decreases the residence time in the system. This technology has been licensed by American Utility Metals, LLC.
