Fiberglass Fabricators, Inc. Water Treatment Clarifier Tanks [www.fibfab.com]
Municipalities are required to maintain high water quality. When populations expand, however, this puts a strain on the waste water treatment facilities. One option is to build additional clarifier tanks, but this costs millions of dollars. An alternative is to strategically place baffles within the clarifier tanks to help improve the particle settling efficiency. Propulsive Wing worked with Fiberglass Fabricators, Inc. of Smithfield, Rhode Island to analyze the effect of various density current baffle geometries on the settling efficiency of particles within waste water treatment clarifier tanks. The findings helped to optimize baffle location and shape, and led to improved understanding of the fundamental physics of this complex problem.
