Central Drive Thickener Market - Introduction

A central drive thickener is water treatment plant which cleans the water by sedimenting the waste at the bottom of the tank. A central drive thickener consists a twin arm ranking mechanism with thickening bars. The thickening frames with thickening pickets are fitted to the drive shaft which is connected to the central gear fitted on the full diameter bridge. The effluent is channeled to the center of the tank, in which it is spread evenly and without turbulence over thickening zone.

Demand for central drive thickeners has increased due to increasing number of chemical manufacturing and processing companies. The application of central drive thickener in the plants has increased due to regulations from the government and various authorities and this is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.
