RapiSand™ Ballasted Flocculation

The WesTech RapiSand™ ballasted flocculation system is a high-rate clarification process using rapid mixing and multi-stage flocculation, followed by sedimentation.

RapiSand™ Ballasted Flocculation sedimentation is extremely fast and can be applied in a wide variety of suspended solids removal applications. The typical uses of RapiSand include expanding plant capacity, minimizing plant footprint, providing fast start-up capabilities, and providing great performance characteristics. RapiSand may be the answer to your suspended solids process needs.

How RapiSand™ Ballasted Flocculation Works

RapiSand ballasted flocculation is a four-step process:

  1. Coagulation: Raw water is mixed with coagulant in the first tank.
  2. Flocculation: Coagulated water is mixed with polymer and recycled microsand in each of two flocculation tanks.
  3. Clarification: The flocculated water flows into the clarification tank where the floc settles and clarified water passes up through tube settlers. Clarified water exits the system by way of a peripheral outlet launder.
  4. Separation: Settled floc and sand are collected and pumped to the hydrocyclone where the sand is separated from the solids. The solids are sent to waste and the separated sand is returned to the first flocculation tank.
