Rapid Settlement
Water Plants

Process your slurry in REAL TIME with no require scheduled downtime for ongoing maintenance in most applications.



Inclined plate clarifier with 100’S square Feet of HDPE Plates to greatly increase water clarity.

Center Feed Tube

Allows for faster settling of solids to be fed into the filter press.

Control Panel

Provides user defined settings to allow for complete control over your system.

Clarified Water Tan

First clarified water tank acts as staging area for filter press and provides water suitable for bridge saws and polishing stations

Polymer Feed System

Proprietary polymer introduced to your slurry as it enters the clarifier to ensure faster settling.

Sludge Bag & Skid

Galvanized dipped forkliftable skids that allow easy handling of sludge dewatering bags.

Clarified Water Tank

Second clarified water tank stores filter press water for redistribution and ensures no downtime during production surges

Repress Pump Skid

Programable pump skids are spec'd to provide adequate pressure back to your cutting equipment.

Slurry Pit Storm

Optional pit stir system keeps solids from settling in the pit.

Rapid Settlement Plant

FCW developed the Rapid Settlement System Plants over 10 years ago and have over 500 systems throughout North America. The plants utilize inclined plates to greatly increase the water quality and efficiently clarify large volumes of slurry water with very little time, space, and energy. RSS plants can be incorporated with filter presses and other water treatment equipment for specific applications.

Rapid Settlement Systems come in 4 standard models designed to operate from 40 to 200 gallons per minute in most wastewater applications. The wastewater plant utilizes our proprietary inclined plate clarifier to efficiently allow removal of approximately 90% of the suspended solids out of the wastewater in real time and with virtually no energy. The system requires very little staff maintenance compared with other liquid solid separation technologies. Plants incorporate many features and options including control packages, slurry pumps, chemical feed, mixing, liquid solid separation, dewatering, pH balancing.
