Glass-Steel, Inc. fabricates Stamford Baffles (also known as Density Current Baffles or Up-flow Baffles) for use in Clarifiers. Stamford type baffles have been used for over (30) years in the water/wastewater industry to divert currents created by the clarifier rake arm as it turns and rakes sludge toward the discharge sump. Stamford Baffles have been made of concrete, galvanized steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. Our pultruded fiberglass Stamford baffles are lower in cost and easier to install than any of the above.
Glass-Steel, Inc. furnishes the Stamford baffles with an integral standoff brace every 8-10 feet. Because our Stamford baffles are fiberglass pultrusions they have superior corrosion resistance and are stronger than most other fiberglass Stamford baffle systems.
Stamford material thickness is 3/16. Two styles are indicated in the following drawings. Other thickness, styles, and resin systems are available.
Closer view of above. All components are pultruded fiberglass shapes with superior strength, corrosion resistance, and UV resistance to molded or hand laid-up materials.
