CABLE TORQUE THICKENER
EIMCO-K.C.P. Cable torque thickeners are recommended for high scaling condition and to handle thixotropic solids.
This design uses cables attached to a truss above or near the liquid surface to move the rake arms, which are hinged to the drive structure, allowing the rakes to be raised when excessive torque is encountered.
A major advantage of this design is the relatively small surface area of the raking mechanism, which reduces the solids accumulation and downtime in applications in which scaling or island formation can occur.
