Linked Settlement Tanks
Linked Settlement Tanks – with many authorities including the Environment Agency now insisting that settlement tanks are used on specific applications, it’s crucial that a reliable tank is used to maintain full pumping capacity whilst avoiding blocked drains. Enduramaxx‘s settlement tanks are designed to capture silt and suspended solids and prevent them from being discharged back into the watercourse. Our Settlement Tanks are constructed from rotationally moulded polyethene and feature a series of over flanges from tank to tank which aid effective settlement of the solids. The design, which includes lifting eyes and drain bungs, enables two or more units to be linked together for multi-stage settlement, should this be required.
Water settlement tanks are used to remove the silty contaminants from water being pumped from ground holes, allowing unwanted wastewater to be discharged in accordance with environmental agency guidelines PPG1. The inlet & discharge ports are fitted with 4” and/ or 6” flange / Bauer connectors. Wastewater can be stored in bulk tanks.
Importance of Silt Management with Linked Settlement Tanks
Silt whilst technically referring to a specific grain size is more often a broad term applied to fine particles of soil carried by water giving it that muddy or dirty discolouration. The most common source of silt pollution is the result of rainwater runoff from topsoil stripped areas of construction sites. When washed off into nearby watercourses, silt pollution is highly visible and easily traceable back to the site. It can travel a long way, causing significant environmental harm including suffocating fish by blocking gills and settling on river beds killing bottom-dwelling organisms. There are legal limits for the concentration of suspended solids in discharged water and breaching these is a common reason for construction companies being taken to court and fined.
