• Thickener



A Thickener is a crucial component in various industrial processes, particularly in the mining and mineral processing industries. This equipment is designed to increase the concentration of solids in a liquid suspension, resulting in a thicker, more concentrated substance known as slurry. The Thickener operates by settling suspended particles through gravity, allowing clear liquid to overflow. Typically consisting of a large tank with a rotating rake mechanism or a similar device, the Thickener efficiently separates solids from liquids, recovering valuable materials and facilitating the removal of water for further processing or disposal. This equipment plays a vital role in resource recovery and waste management, contributing to the optimization of processes by maximizing the efficiency of material utilization and minimizing environmental impact.
