Related Terms

SLURRY

A water containing high concentration of suspended solids, usually over 5000 mg/L.

CLARIFICATION

The process used to reduce the amount of suspended solids in water.

CENTRIFUGAL SETTLER

Spinning container that separates solid particles from liquids; centrifugal force causes suspended solids to move toward or away from the center of rotation, thus concentrating them in one area for removal.

CLARITY

Measure of the amount of opaque suspended solids in a liquid, determined by visual or optical methods.

DISSOLVED AIR FLOTATION

A liquidsolid separation process wherein the main mechanism of suspended-solids removal is the change of apparent specific gravity of those suspended solids in relation to that of the suspending liquid by the attachment of small gas bubbles formed by the release of dissolved gas to the solids. Also known as air flotation.

CONTINUOUS BLOWDOWN

The uninterrupted removal of concentrated boiler water from a boiler to control total solids concentration in the remaining water.
