High Rate & Conventional types / Hydraulic & Mechanical Drives.

EIMCO-K.C.P. Thickeners are designed for continuous operation in metallurgical, ore processing, Chemical Industries and also for the water treatment plants. Equipments are designed to accommodate the more sophisticated processes with emphasis on dependable and low cost operation. EIMCO-K.C.P. Thickeners are manufactured for heavy duty Concentrates, tailings and fine application and three basic configurations: Bridge mounted, Column mounted and Traction type and sizes up to 500 feet diameter are available.
Optional lifting devices for either design offer additional operational flexibility.


EIMCO-K.C.P. High Rate Thickeners are designed to maximize the flocculation efficiency, self-dilution and settling rates. EIMCO-K.C.P. High rate thickeners are designed to provide high underflow concentration with smaller diameter. The high velocity feed is split to two compartments with opposite tangential inlets that are positioned in two levels, an upper and a lower one. Between those compartments there is a narrow gap through which the flocculent solution is introduced and the high shear quickly distributes the polymer to a uniform mixture.

EIMCO KCP Thickener tanks are constructed either from bolted / steel welded or concrete. Most of the chemical process industries prefer the steel tanks construction since they may be elevated above ground level, allow inspection of the tank’s floor for leakages and bring the underflow slurry pumps nearer to the outlet of the discharge cone. Another consideration in selecting steel tanks is their ready adaptation to corrosive processes by rubber covering the wetted parts of the tank.
