Specifications

A mud trap removes sediments (sand, mud, grit, settable solids,…) from the wastewater.

The installation of a sediment collector may be necessary in the following circumstances and may be used together with a hydrocarbon and / or grease trap separator:

  • In garages, car-washes, car parks,… These are places where there is always a chance that hydrocarbons might be discharged.
  • In hotels, restaurants, bars, schools, butchers, caterers,.. These are places where there is always a change that vegetable or animal fats might be discharged along with other sediment.
  • When there is a chance that sediments might enter an installation, causing blockage.

A mud trap or grease trap can be obligatory, please consults your national and / or local legislation and environmental regulations.

The water loaded with sediment enters the tank by means of an anti-splash jet-nozzle. Because the sediment has a higher density (it is heavier) than the water in the tank, it starts to settle down. The water that flows out of the separator is nearly sediment-free.

The minimum volume of the mud trap:

In combination with a hydrocarbon separator:

  • Class 1 (slightly polluted water): 100 x the flow of the separator e.g. brand dealer.
  • Class 2 (polluted water): 200 x the flow of the separator, e.g. car washes.
  • Class 3 (heavily polluted water): 300 x the flow of the separator, e.g. cleaning of farming.

In combination with a grease trap:

  • 40 litres per second of the grease trap, e.g. grease trap 10 l/s, mud trap = 400 litre.

The mud trap has been designed in accordance with the DIN 4040 standard and meets with the following demands:

Liquid surface: 0,25 m² per litre per second
Retention time: 3 minutes
Performance: 92%

All are equipped with an adaptable riser.
