Cleaning of stormwater tanks HUBER Tipping Bucket SK
Economic and efficient flushing system for any stormwater tank
- For optimal cleaning results
- Low-noise tipping
- Easy tipping
- For flushing lane lengths up to 100 m
Systems which generate a flush are especially suitable to clean stormwater tanks. An especially cost-effective and reliable solution to remove the settled material are HUBER tipping buckets as they neither have moveable parts submerged in wastewater nor do they require any special flushing medium. Depending on discharge height, tank length and base slope, HUBER Tipping Buckets with specific flush water amounts from 200 to 2,000 l/m are installed.
HUBER Tipping Buckets are used for efficient and cost-effective cleaning of the following storage facilities:
- Stormwater overflow tanks
- Stormwater retention tanks
- Sewers with storage capacity and overflow
- Other storage facilities
Tipping buckets are arranged on the tank side opposite to the sump. They consist of a trough that takes up the medium and is supported outside the axis of rotation. During the filling process a torque is generated as the filling level in the trough increases, which effects automatic tipping of the bucket when the trough is completely filled. During the tipping action the flush water is diverted by a concrete radius at the tank bottom from the vertical into horizontal direction. When the tipping bucket is empty, it automatically returns into its home position and is available for the next flushing sequence.
The bucket including all attaching parts is manufactured from stainless steel and acid-treated in a pickling bath. The bucket bearings are optimized bearings designed especially for the static and dynamic loads for a superior product life. The special bucket design effects a low-noise tipping operation so that additional sound insulation is unnecessary, and ensures that the flush water is optimally poured out so that the full kinetic energy of the flushing medium can be used for the cleaning process. The special design of the buffers ensures gentle introduction of the forces into the structure during tipping of the buckets. Permanent monitoring of the tipping buckets is possible by means of a motion detector. To meet any project-specific installation requirements, three different support constructions are available for installation of the tipping buckets in the structure.
