The four steps found in conventional treatment processes - coagulation, flocculation, separation and dewatering – are combined into one in the Crystalactor. Water-free pellets are produced thereby eliminating troublesome and costly sludge dewatering.
No residual waste
A major advantage of the Crystalactor is its ability to produce virtually water-free pellets which are easy to handle. Due to their purity they can be recycled or reused in other applications. In the rare event that they need to be disposed, they have the added advantages of being lowvolume as well as water-free - thereby avoiding bulky sludge disposal.
Compact & cost-effective
The unit is compact due to the high surface loadings of 40-120 m/h. The small footprint, combined with relatively low capital and operational expenditure, results in a cost-effective solution.
