Metso Outotec introduces Reactorwell feed system for maximizing thickener and clarifier performance

Metso Outotec Corporation’s press release on December 2, 2021, at 09:00 a.m. EET

Metso Outotec is launching the Metso Outotec ReactorwellTM – a new generation feedwell – for maximizing thickener and clarifier performance while minimizing flocculant consumption and bringing significant operational cost efficiencies.

The first-class feed system features high solids retention and mixing efficiency. It eliminates feed short-circuiting and offers low shear for ideal floccule growth and even discharge symmetry. The new feed system provides optimum feed conditioning for thickeners and clarifiers. Thanks to its many benefits in addition to low flocculant usage, the ReactorwellTM is part of Metso Outotec’s sustainable Planet Positive portfolio.

“The ReactorwellTM enables a big leap forward in thickener and clarifier performance as it utilizes maximum settling area due to its high exit symmetry. It also provides improved overflow clarity as well as higher underflow density. Additionally, the ReactorwellTM allows better thickener operability with an improved response to process changes,” says Brian Berger, Vice President, Thickeners and Clarifiers at Metso Outotec.

The ReactorwellTM  is easy to maintain due to its intelligent design and modularity. It consistently achieves high unit area throughput and the improved Autodil™ performance minimizes the need for pumped dilution, leading to lower total cost of ownership.
