Washdown Separators

Prevent unwanted debris, like silt, sediment and oil, from entering your soakaway with a silt trap from Tanks.ie. If too much silt and debris enters your water storage system it will cause damage, interfere with your system’s ability to remove water, clog pipes, fill soakaway systems and reduce their capacity for holding water. If the water cannot drain away, you risk causing flooding and creating costly damage. A silt trap will prevent unwanted materials flowing into the system allowing only filtered water to flow through. Place your silt trap upstream of your soakaway crate, where it can temporarily contain the water in the trap and allow unwanted materials to settle to the bottom. With the sediment and water separated, the filtered water can flow on through to your system. We stock a range of silt traps in various sizes from Klargester.

Washdown Separators FAQs

How does a silt trap work?

The job of your silt trap is to prevent any unwanted materials, like silt, soil and sediment, from entering your water storage system. Before entering the drainage system, water is directed into the silt trap — a basin-type container that is placed in the upstream of your soakaway crate. The water is temporarily contained in the trap where the silt and sediment settles to the bottom, leaving the filtered water at the top. The invert of the pipe sits just above where the sump settles below, allowing the filtered water to continue to the drainage system, leaving the silt behind.

Without a silt trap, silt and debris would enter your water storage system and cause costly damage. If water cannot drain away you risk causing flooding and your system’s ability to remove water could be affected, clogging pipes or filling soakaway systems, reducing their capacity for holding water.

What different types of slit trap are available?

All silt traps have the same purpose — to keep a soakaway system free from silt and sediment. But different types of silt traps are better for different types of systems. The primary difference between the different types of silt traps is the size of the area covered by your system. That’s why silt traps come in a range of sizes, so make sure you choose one that is suitable for your needs. Naturally, the larger the area your water storage system is serving, the larger your silt trap should be. You will also want to consider the type of environment. At Tanks.ie, we stock a range of car wash silt traps that offer effective silt removal for car wash facilities or any areas with particularly high silt run-off.

How to clean a silt trap?

Silt and debris will build up in your silt trap, so it’s important that it is regularly cleaned and maintained. Failure to do so can, at best, result in them becoming ineffective or, worse, eventually lead to an entirely blocked drainage system. The ‘basket’ of your silt trap can usually be easily removed to allow you to clean it and then put it back. The instructions will vary between each silt trap so it’s important to refer to the manufacturer’s instructions.
