3 Benefits of Equalization and Wastewater Storage Tanks
The term “Equalization” refers to the process of a constant flow downstream while retaining a high flow fluctuation. Simply put, this process buffers the characteristics of wastewater before it enters the wastewater treatment system. Waste streams vary in both the measure of the rate of flow and contaminants. Equalization can greatly impact fluctuations during this process in many beneficial ways. Here are the three top benefits of equalization and wastewater storage tanks.
Equalization storage tanks are used in many industrial applications. This process can reduce the flows and peaks in wastewater discharges and pollutant loadings. Just equalizing the flow for a day can improve system operations. Major flow changes can be detected faster using this system and can contribute to uncovering problems with ease.
Reduction in Costs
Equalization tanks are used to reduce the number of chemicals and can minimize temperature variations. With waste treatment, batch dumping and inconsistent flow rates can create changes and constant modification. With the use of equalization, these modifications are minimized and make for a more successful flow. Properly using these storage tanks will reduce capital expenditures for auxiliary mechanisms.
When it comes to equalization, there are different tank options to choose from, depending on what suits a business best. The top three main tank variations available are the Stainless Steel Welded Equalization, Aeriaiton Mixing Systems with Aeration Blower (with stainless steel headers and diffusers), and Exterior Tank Side Level Indicator.
During sanitation periods, high concentrations of pollutants or high volumes of water are sent to the wastewater treatment system. This is where equalization tanks can benefit. They exist to provide smooth operations, reduce overall costs and waste, and even come in a range of options. They offer a more environmentally friendly approach to your business and help resolve treatment concerns. When choosing a tank there are different materials, pumping systems, shapes, and other factors to consider.
