Context

ELIQUO HYDROK, working closely with Ferrier Pumps, designed, manufactured and installed 2 of its Tipping Buckets at Mauchline WwTW for Scottish Water.

Project details

The bespoke-designed Tipping Buckets are each 5m long with a 2,800-litre capacity. They were installed early summer in 2 tanks, 6m wide x 24m long.

Manufactured in Grade 304 stainless steel, the ELIQUO HYDROK Tipping Bucket range provides a solution to cleanse tanks once they have been emptied by discharging a flushing wave along the tank floor. The flushing wave removes the sediment and transports it into a sump at the end of the tank, which then feeds the sludge back into the sewer network via pumps or gravity.

Tipping Buckets may be installed within new or existing open or closed tanks with flushing lane lengths of up to 50m. Longer tank lengths may be addressed with the use of KS Flushing Gate systems.

ELIQUO HYDROK Tipping Buckets consist of a specially designed cross-sectional form which ensures the automatic tipping and release of the flushing wave, and the automatic return of the bucket to the start position without the need for external power or operator intervention. Flushing water is fed into the bucket either from the final effluent from the works, or from a potable water supply, either manually or fully automatically via an ELIQUO HYDROK Tipping Buckets control centre.

Bespoke, adaptable with specific design benefits

  • Effective cleansing of new-build or existing storm tanks
  • Bespoke sizing
  • Maintenance-free (sealed-for-life bearings)
  • Stainless steel construction (Grade 304 or 316 available)
  • Tank lane widths up to 16m
  • Tank lane lengths up to 50m
  • Multiple buckets for larger tanks
  • Combined operation to cleanse storm screens and storm tank during a single flush
