Siltbuster Mix Tanks
A range of Siltbuster mix tanks are available from 1m³ to 30 m³ capacity, with baffles providing separation of multiple treatment stages. Top mounted, variable speed mixers provide controlled mixing of chemicals. Mix tanks are well suited to applications where flocs are fragile or flow varies because of the increased control over mixing they provide.
To ensure floc protection and remove the need for additional pumping, mix tanks can be provided with support steelwork, allowing flocculated wastewater to gravitate to the separation stage if required.
A range of different sizes are available to cater for different flow rates. Mix tanks are typically provided as part of a complete treatment system comprising dosing before separation in a lamella clarifier or DAF, but are also used to pre-treat sludge ahead of dewatering.
