Flow Equalization in Wastewater Treatment
In facilities where flow is not constant or regular, a flow equalization system can prevent overloading, eliminating the need to move to an oversized system. Churches, community halls and banquet facilities typically have events only a few days every week. Sub-divisions and large municipal systems often have very high peak loadings for a short period of time during the day. In these conditions, a flow equalization system (a.k.a. surge tank or flow balancing tank) is recommended.
The equalization system spreads peak flow over a longer period of time, preventing the treatment unit from being overloaded or during peak load events. Pinnacle can assist in the selection a flow equalization system that works best for the facility and treatment system being served.
Flow Equalization should be considered for facilities such as churches, community halls and banquet facilities.
Designed to reduce 30mg/l of BOD5 and TSS down to 10 mg/l each, and can be used to replace pressure sand filters before effluent is pumped to the drain field.
Pre-Aeration to reduce high strength wastewater down to residential strength.
