Lamella is 90% smaller than traditional separators and clarifiers

This highly efficient treatment process removes up to 95% turbidity, suspended solids, and associated pollutants (subject to application). The precision hydraulic design of the WPL Lamella Separator ensures even flow distribution over the inclined plates to enhance solids separation.

Discharge occurs through a full-length v-notch channel positioned on either side of the lamella separator. This weir design significantly reduces the velocity of the effluent flow resulting in a smaller quantity of suspended solids being transported to the outfall point.
