Wastewater projects are often challenged to optimize solids removal using existing infrastructure. The more population, the greater the need for liquid/solids separation. But greater population can also mean less land for plant expansion and a need to control costs to maximize the public’s investment.

Plate settlers, often called inclined plate settlers, are a favored solution for upgrading a wastewater treatment plant when a new plant is not an option. The Mega-SETTLER (Plate Settler System) for Wastewater processes billions of gallons of water every day. Certified to ANSI/NSF-61 standards and constructed of 100% stainless steel for superior longevity, it’s the strongest plate settler system available and the only one that can safely support the weight of operators for wash-down and service.

The Mega-SETTLER (Plate Settler System) for Wastewater is used for primary and secondary sedimentation and tertiary/final polishing.
