Some guidelines for the design of a parallel plate lamella
separator have been derived from an improved understanding of
the various aspects of inclined sedimentation. These include
the adequate provision of the essential requirements for achieving
laminar and steady-state conditions, flow stability and an
efficient sludge discharge along the lower inclined surfaces.
A novel laser-photographic technique has been used to assist in
these studies. [Continues.]
