  15. 15. RECTANGULAR BASINS Rectangular basins are commonly found in large- scale water treatment plants. Rectangular tanks are popular as they tend to have: • High tolerance to shock overload • Predictable performance • Cost effectiveness due to lower construction cost • Lower maintenance • Minimal short circuiting
  16. 16. CIRCULAR BASINS Circular basins are often referred to as clarifiers. These basins share some of the performance advantages of the rectangular basins, but are generally more prone to short circuiting and particle removal problems.

(Q/WD, Q/LW, Q/DL, Q/LWD). 2. ______________ sedimentation is concerned with the settling of non flocculating discrete particles. (Type I/Type II/Type III/Type IV). 3. Settling tank efficiency is reduced by __________. (eddy currents/ surface currents/ vertical convection/all of above). 4. Type III settling is known as _______ or _________ settling. 5. Efficiency of settling is independent of ______ and _______.
