Outotec® High Compression Thickener

Achieve a higher density underflow with our high compression thickener. The Outotec HCT has been designed with a smaller footprint and higher walls than our High Rate Thickener or conventional thickeners. The HCT reacts relatively quickly to changes and can be automated, with control based on constant solids inventory. It is best suited to relatively consistent processes.

  • Uses flocculation chemistry to dramatically increase settling rates (0.35–1.5 t/m²h)
  • Achieves a consistent, higher density underflow than Outotec High Rate Thickeners
  • Offers good control by maintaining a constant solids inventory and solid/liquid interface
  • Enables process automation
