Flow Equalization Systems
To meet today’s secondary treatment effluent limits being discharged from domestic wastewater and the flow rates will vary through out the day, a flow equalization system would be recommended to receive the flow prior to the secondary wastewater treatment process to meet the effluent limits. The TIPTON flow equalization system can meet those requirements. The process is called flow equalization. They are used to slow the peak flow rates down to average 24 hour flow rates.
Flow Equalization system are used to slow the peak flow rated of the wastewater stream to flow rates which will equal close to an 24 hour average flow rate. By equalizing the flow rate greater level of BOD reduction can be achieved. (Level of 20 ppm of BOD and suspended solids by equalizing the peak flow rates to continuous average design flow rates.)
The TIPTON system is a prefabricated factory-built unit complete and ready for easy installation at the project site.
The flow enters the flow proportioning chamber where the average design flow rate is allowed to pass through the V-Notch weir and and surge flow rate is returned to the flow equalization chamber for re-processing. Refer to the photo on the right.
The TIPTON flow equalization system systems features a compact design, automatic air and liquid control system, quality components ideal for retro-fitting, ease of installation, and simple operation.
