Primary and Secondary clarifying equipment
The Arlat CF chain and flight sludge collector equipment is designed to be mounted
into rectangular tanks and is suited for Primary and/or Secondary clarifiers as well as water
plant settling tanks. The action of the flights is to scrape the sludge, which settles to the
bottom, to one end where it is collected and transferred to the digesters. The returning
flights travel along the surface of the tank skimming all the scum, which floats, into an Arlat
scum trough or some other removal device.
The Arlat design utilizes non-metallic 720 series chain and sprockets to reduce weight and
cost while providing a reliable and long lasting installation. The scraper flight material is
FRP, fibreglass reinforced plastic, to reduce weight to make installation and maintenance
easier. All flights are connected to the 720 series chain by means of the integrated
connector plate, F26 or F28 depending on the flight size required.
The 720 drive sprockets are keyed to the head shaft which rotates in cast iron wall
bearings fitted with UHMW inserts. UHMW is chosen for its long life, economical price and
to remove the need for greasing bearings that can lead to grease and oils entering the
water stream. The 720 idler sprockets are mounted to stationary shafts utilizing idler
sleeves to reduce the chain drag and required drive torque.
The 78 series bull sprocket is keyed to the head shaft in order to properly transmit the drive
torque to the collector system. The 78 series drive sprockets come in a variety of
configurations; using shear pins with or without trip cams, jaw clutches can be used to
allow a single drive to power two collector units while still offering the ability to segregate a
single tank for maintenance or service.
