Amwell designs, engineers and manufactures paddle flocculator mechanisms that provide optimum energy input for flocculant formation. Tank size and capacity, flow rate, and specific applications are important considerations in designing systems for optimum efficiency. Based upon your requirements, Amwell will provide computer generated velocity gradient calculations and recommend the horsepower, drive design, shaft design, paddle configurations, and type of pedestal supports and bearings to give you the best system.

Constant speed and variable speed, heavy-duty drives are available to match your shaft mounted drive arrangement in a dry well or in a wet well chain drive. Variable speed paddle type flocculators are furnished with fiberglass paddles. Drive shafts are available in solid shaft or torque tube configurations in either stainless or carbon steel.
