Inclined plate settler for emergency water treatment: final design

Previously we reported on the proof-of-concept and initial optimisation work on an inclined plate settler (IPS) for water treatment in humanitarian situations. Whilst promising results (i.e. effluent turbidity < 5 NTU) were obtained, further work was warranted to better control and design the hydraulic flocculation (floc conditioning) stage of the treatment system. This paper reports on such work. A scaled-down version of the IPS was tested in parallel with several hydraulic flocculation configurations. The first deployment of the IPS is planned for 2015.
