Normally a clarifier runs at one torque value for 90 – 98% of the time. The drive unit should be designed for this running torque and should protect from excessive loads that would require it to run above its design requirements. Optimum ratings for running, alarm, and shut-off should be specified for a clarifier drive unit based on the intended use of the clarifier.
