AltaFlo High rate Thickener Overview The AltaFlo ultra high rate thickener is a rake less thickener that provides mixing, flocculation and internal dilution followed by clarification and positive sludge collection and removal in a single tank. The principles of flocculation have been further adapted to a new design that will thicken slurries
Demonstrating this commitment has positioned Kemira as a key partner in the aggressive expansion plans for many of the copper mines in the region. Consultation on thickener feedwell design and flocculant application points have enabled one producer in Zambia to almost double feed rate with minimal capital expenditure using the existing thickeners.
We also have led the way in developing paste thickening technology, with more paste thickening installations than all of our competitors combined. All of the durable and productive thickening and clarifying equipment we offer is among the most technologically advanced and rigorously tested products available on the market today.

In most cases, if these requirements are met and proper test work is done, high rate thickeners may replace conventional thickeners and depending on the application they are capable of delivering a throughput that is 5 10 higher than with a conventional machine of equal size.
