The Recycling settlement tank comprises of 3 weirs and baffles, these act as filters and deflectors to take particles out of the water. This 24,000 litre system enables re-use of the water and maximizes recycling, saving on topping up from the mains water supply. Compacted sludge is easily flushed from the tanks with release valves at the bottom of each weir.
The water needs to be free of contaminants and small particles, as these would quickly block the spray nozzles on the wash unit. We offer the Settlement recycling tank as standard with our Force Wheel washers. This will cope with most site conditions. For extreme conditions of heavy clays etc. and a smaller footprint the optional Lamella Clarifier maybe preferable.
