The Schreiber Clarifiers are versatile and very durable peripheral drive clarifiers. The peripheral drive system utilizes leverage rather than center-drive torque to rotate the scraper and skimming assembly, resulting in a simplified mechanical system. The equipment necessary for the continuous removal of floatables and settled solids is suspended from either a rotating bridge or, for smaller units, a lightweight rotating beam arm. The rotating skimming equipment removes floatables regardless of wind direction, and the helical scrapers used on Schreiber Peripheral Drive Clarifiers transport settled solids to the center of the basin in a single revolution. Additional accessories such as effluent weirs, baffle plates, and return sludge pumps ensure compatibility in all applications. The Schreiber design allows for the hoisting of all such equipment above the water level for inspection or maintenance without having to dewater the basin.
Schreiber Peripheral Drive Clarifier equipment is hot-dip galvanized after fabrication for corrosion protection. No field painting is required. Options include Weir washing systems, fabricated flocculation tanks and inlet feed wells.
