Cleaning Pollutant Traps

Cleaning Pollutant Traps

Cleaning & Maintenance
Access to the traps should allow for vacuum eduction trucks being positioned immediately adjacent to the trap.
SmartStream Technology MPT design allows for easy access from the surface via the surface covers circular clear openings. All chambers can be easily accessed from the surface with the vacuum truck eduction hose, thereby minimising clean out costs. The eco-BITE has no storage chambers that require high pressure jetting out of pollutants trapped in lower chambers, not easily accessible from the surface. Consequently, maintenance and clean out costs are controlled and consistent.
The lids are designed so that they cannot fall into the traps.
Some manufacturers employ swift lift devices for lifting the access lids which does not encourage regular inspections/maintenance as a small crane is required to remove the lids.
SmartStream Technology recommends that a cleaning and maintenance program should be implemented and adhered to, which will ensure the ongoing effectiveness and satisfactory performance of the multi-pollutant trap.
Trapped floatable pollutants in chamber one are visible through the inspection lid opening(s).
