Lamella separator


A tilted plate separator, corrugated plate interceptor or lamella separator is used to separate solid particles from a water stream. These particles can settle by their size and weight. In the lamella separator, a tilted plate package is provided to promote a laminar, even flow of water and greatly increases the settable surface through the lamellae. Solid particles settle and are collected in the hoppers underneath the plate package (lamellae). Using a pneumatically operated valve, the collected sludge is removed at fixed times. For efficient removal of the sludge, the lamella separator is provided with a special sludge discharge tank for a smooth discharge.


The separators are available in various versions where the following aspects involved:

  • capacity
  • required projected settling surface (following applied surface load)
  • installation of the lamella in either counter current flow of co current flow
  • Installation mainly in steel coated or stainless steel (plastic also available on request)
  • distance of plates (standard 55mm)

The standards developed by Logisticon for rental are based on a counter current flow version with various projected settling areas of 12 up to 90 m². (At a lamella distance of 55mm) If another version is required we can realize it after consultation of our engineering department.

The use of a coil pipe flocculator (in combination with coagulant, flocculant dosage) or mixing tank (s) is optional.
