Improve Clarifier and Thickener Design and Operation

Clarifiers and thickeners are essentially ide ntical units; a clarifier produces clean water, while a thickener concentrates a solids slurry as the desired product. In this discussion, thickener will be used to describe both units. Also, a gravity separation of solids from water is assumed to take place.
