dick and ewing , dick[4,5] and mancini  have graphically discussed the prevalent failure to consider both the clarification and thickening aspects in design of sedimentation units. the relative usage of various methods of sludge thickening in sludge treatment are delineated in table 4-2. 4- 1
design of thickeners the thickening process takes place in a settling tank with long-enough solids retention time. for example in secondary clarifiers of activated sludge systems both clarification and thickening operations are carried out. actually, the thickening of the sludge is a concern to
the powerdrum (pdr) drum thickener for sludge thickening is considered to be an easy and efficient sludge thickening solution prior to the dewatering process and can deal with biological sludge throughputs ranging from 15 to 180 m 3 /hr. with its simple design and small footprint, the powerdrum (pdr) drum thickener for sludge thickening is easy

the densadeg clarifier/thickener is a high-rate solids contact clarifier that combines optimized flocculation, internal and external sludge recirculation, and plate settling in two conjoined vessels.
you don't need to add anything to the recipe to make the curd thicker, just cook/whisk it longer. last time i made curd i failed to check the viscosity while cooking and once it cooled, it was so thick it did not pour at all - the texture was really firm, like guava paste; when i scooped out a spoonful it came out holding the shape like hard ice cream does when spooned out of the container!
i've been watching the cooking whenever i can. i've seen something added to thai iced tea that i believe is a thickening agent. here's what happens - the vendor adds some tea leaves to a tea sock in a metal container, adds hot water and steeps it briefly. the sock is removed and the tea poured into a big plastic cup. two powders are then added.
