What is silt trap?
A Rewatec silt trap is a robust GRP tank that is specifically designed to prevent silt from entering a drainage system.
They can be installed upstream of systems such as forecourt separators and washdown separators to temporarily contain contaminated water, thus allowing silt and other unwanted pollutants to settle at the bottom of the trap and separate from the water.
By removing silt at the early stages of contaminated / stormwater water run-off, you can preserve the sustainability of your separator and limit any potential blockages, damage or surface flooding caused by sediment build up.
How do silt traps work?
Before entering a drainage system, contaminated water is directed to the silt trap.
As the silt trap fills up with water, silt settles at the bottom of the tank, below the invert pipe.
Water rises to the outlet pipe, leaves the silt trap and is discharged to a drainage system. All silt that has been separated from the water stays in the sump of the trap.
