Model of Sedimentation Tank
The sump tank is continually agitated by a flow sparge device to prevent settling of solids during an experiment. This may be comparatively analysed by the Imhoff cone technique or more accurately by drying and weighing. For studies of sedimentation, a slurry is prepared in a sump tank and pumped via a specially designed flow meter to join the fresh water stream just before entry to the settling tank. A well-mixed slurry of known concentration and flow enters the tank uniformly under an inlet weir.
