PHOENIX - Model AF AltaFlo™ - Ultra High Rate Thickener
PHOENIX has long been a market leader in separation, classification, thickening, and dewatering equipment for the aggregate industry. One recent innovation is the AltaFlo Ultra High Rate Thickener, featuring: No moving parts. Minimal space requirements. High underflow solids (as high as 50-60% in mining applications). Complete factory assembly for ease of installation and relocation. Extensive successful mining application experience. Diluted slurries, once flocculated, settle more readily than undiluted slurries. AltaFlo's increased bed depth increases the compaction of thickened material at the bottom of the bed, maximizing the underflow solids concentration.
