Hello, What will the tank in question contain? Urban wastewater, industrial, drinking water?
The tank will receive urban wastewater from a collection system that is 60% combined sewage.
Why are you rinsing this tank? I don't believe this is a common process
Hello, we have a tank that is more than 6000 m3. Using a valve system, we feed it via backflow when it is empty. Satisfactory washing, simple and economical system without significant investment, doesn't require energy consuming technolology such as a hydro-ejector. I think you could also use the Hydroself gate flushing system, but it requires regular maintenance to ensure efficient washing.
Hello, For large operations, one common method is to clean using a central flushing mechanism that uses very little energy. Otherwise for small storm water tanks that are used infrequently, hydro-ejectors are more common.
