Wash-down separators are designed to remove silt and debris from water run-off. They are typically installed at car wash facilities and other industrial wash-down facilities.
As the wash-down separator fills with contaminated water, sediments such as silt and other debris, such as dirt and dust, settle at the bottom of the tank below the pipe’s invert. When the water level reaches the outlet pipe, it safely leaves the separator and continues to the drainage system – leaving all forms of sediment at the bottom of the tank.
If required, a silt trap can also be installed upstream of the wash-down separator to limit any potential blockages, damage or flooding in the tank.
Bespoke/larger models are available on request.
