Self-cleaning inserts for wastewater tanks

By Chemical Engineering |

The ready-to-install, self-cleaning Amaclean tank insert (photo) decreases the amount of stagnant water in the pump sump and reduces the need for maintenance and cleaning. In combination with select impeller types used in the wastewater pumps, this tank insert eliminates the need for flushing valves. Amaclean’s patented design and gel-coated inner surface prevent waste and fibers contained in the wastewater from depositing in and at the lower parts of the structure. The tank itself is made of glass-fiber-reinforced polyester, which has a good chemical resistance. Steel reinforcement enhances anchoring in the concrete and transfers the weight-induced forces of the pumps, supported by the flanged bends, into the surrounding concrete jacket of the wastewater tank. All wetted parts are made of plastic-coated cast iron or corrosion-resistant stainless steel. Amaclean is available in three sizes for wastewater sumps with an inside diameter of 1,200, 1,500 or 2,000 mm. — KSB SE & Co. KGaA, Frankenthal, Germany
