Thickeners or clarification is carried out in decantation tanks employing gravitational settling or sedimentation. The tank is fitted with a mechanical scraper to collect and move the settled solids to the point of discharge. This is achieved at very high throughput rates and is used to recover water for mine site operation.

The tank was manufactured, transported and installed in wedge shaped sections and bolted together onsite.
