CHEMICAL SYSTEMS

LIQUID CHEMICAL FEED SYSTEMS: LQ-SERIES

  • Polymers
  • Flocculants
  • Coagulants
  • Acids
  • Bases

Clearwater’s stock and custom chemical preparation systems accurately mix and dose and uniform solution. An inline static mixer ensures a consistent chemical solution and durable designs withstand years of harsh working environments.

DRY CHEMICAL SYSTEMS: M-SERIES

  • Polymer Flocculants
  • Aluminum Sulfate
  • Bentonite Clay
  • Citric Acid
  • More

All M-Series Dry Chemical Feed Systems include a lifetime warranty with the exclusive use of Clearwater’s chemical.

Containerized Systems protect chemicals and instruments from harsh weather environments. Keep your operation running in freezing temperatures and extreme heat.

Our standard designs include fire retardant spray foam insulation, HVAC systems, single-point electrical hookup, plumbing, and LED lighting.

CLARIFIERS

STATIONARY CLARIFIERS

  • High Compaction Clarifying Thickeners
  • Horizontal Clarifiers
    • Traditional Sedimentation
    • Ballasted Flocculation
  • Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) Clarifiers

Wastewater clarification is a mainstay process for solid-liquid separation in the industry. Clearwater’s experience in industrial wastewater processing has allowed us to develop a range of clarifiers for different applications. Our stationary clarifiers are renowned for their efficiency, reliability, and innovation. Our High Compaction Clarifying Thickener achieves 50-70% solids by weight.

PORTABLE CLARIFIERS

  • Traditional Sedimentation
  • Ballasted Flocculation

Clearwater Industries is a pioneer in portable clarification. Our turnkey designs treat 300-2,000 GPM flowrates with 90% water recovery and 30-50% solids by weight sludge discharge. Each unit includes a climate-controlled operator room and integrated chemical feed systems.

FINES RECOVERY SYSTEMS

  • Stationary
  • Portable

Clearwater’s Fines Recovery Systems separates particles based on size and dewaters material to a stackable state. All systems are automatic with manual override and integrate with our clarifiers and chemical feed systems.

AUTOFLOC DOSING SYSTEM

The AutoFloc Dosing System uses infrared light absorption to automate coagulant and flocculant dosing. Automated dosing reduces chemical consumption rates and improves process reliability. Unlike other systems that have to pull and analyze samples, the AutoFloc accounts for flocculation changes in real-time.

An infrared light absorption Centerwell Probe relays data to a touchscreen AutoFloc Messenger that uses 4-20 mA output signals to adjust dosing pumps.

The AutoFloc messenger features a touch screen interface for users to adjust the outputs sensitivity, probe air-sparging cleaning events, set alarm relays, and monitor real-time or historical data.
