KLa Floating Decanter - KFED - Effluent Decanters
KLa Systems floating effluent decanters are used to draw clarified liquid from near the liquid surface of sequencing batch reactors and aerobic digesters. The design is both simple and rugged. The materials of construction are Type 304L stainless steel for the weir, draw-off pipe, swing joint support and stop supports.
KLa Jet Mixer - K4JM - Jet Mixing System
Jet mixers are used in wastewater treatment applications primarily in unit processes where liquid blending, solids suspension, flow generation or chemical reactions are key process parameters. Jet mixers are ideal for these types of applications. The superior performance of jet mixers are due to the following:
