Grit chambers are designed to separate the intended heavier inorganic material (specific gravity about 2.65) and to pass forward the lighter organic materials. They are similar to the sedimentation tanks but, the flow velocity in grit chambers is neither too low as to cause the settling of lighter organic matter nor too high as not to cause the ...

A grit chamber is usually installed before primary sedimentation tanks and it is sensible to say that it should be placed well before wastewater pumps. There are basically three different types of grit chambers. One is called the horizontal flow type, another is the aerated grit chamber and the last one is the vortex type. The design of a ...

Wastewater contains varying quantities of floating and also suspended solids, some of considerable size. Preliminary Treatment processes remove floating materials from wastewater like dead bodies of animals, pieces of wood, papers, rags, metal containers, plastic or rubber containers, grease etc. These are also very heavy settle-able inorganic solids like grit, fragments of masonry etc.

Types Of Aerated Grit Chambers. There are three types of aerated grit chambers: • Horizontal flow chambers are the oldest design and they work by controlling the flow vortices to settle as much particulate as possible. • Vortex chambers have a rotating turbine with variable pitch blades that can control the size of grit allowed to settle. • Aerated use flow vortices and aeration to ...

Therefore, a grit removal system is required for most sewage treatment plants. Removal of grit is achieved by differential sedimentation, in which the flow velocity is so controlled that grit may settle but most of the organics are retained in suspension. Velocity control may be achieved hydraulically (as in constant velocity chambers…
