The Benefits of Having a Settlement Tank On-Site

Settlement tanks provide several benefits on-site as it stops any unwanted wastewater leaking or spilling onto your site - this is illegal. As a business, it is your responsibility to make sure that any waste is stored and disposed of in accordance with environmental agency guidelines. Our blog covers some of the benefits of having a settlement tank on-site.

Flow of wastewater

The settlement tank’s primary function is to stop the flow of wastewater in the ground and raw sludge to settle. Settlement tanks are the first line of defence against the removal of large particles. Environmental pollution is still a problem with the most common form being silt pollution.

Environmentally friendly

With that in mind, it is the site’s responsibility to stay environmentally friendly and having an on-site settlement tank is the best solution. Wastewater that is not stored or disposed of correctly can have environmental repercussions in the form of a heavy fine or prosecution from the authorities - so extra care must be taken.

Easy to use

Settlement tanks are easy to use and there are many different sizes to choose from. If you need help deciding on what size of settlement tank is right for your business, then contact one of the Cross Plant Hire team today. 

The waste that is collected by the tanks can be easily removed via a gate valve. Following this method allows for a smooth operation and eliminates the need for the tank to come offline or moved to dispose of the wastewater.

Simple design

The design of settlement tanks is engineered in such a way that they can be stacked on top of each other which is a big benefit when it comes to saving space. 

Another beneficial feature is drain bugs and lifting eyes that allow multiple units to be connected. While they might be heavy in size, they are equipped with forklift pockets meaning they can be moved into position with ease.
