AQIS Unroofed Container Wash Facility

Avalon Air Field

The problem

The stormwater cannot receive polluted wash water and the treatment plant is not designed to receive added loadings during rainfall events

Clean Rainwater falling on the catchment is directed via the stormwater network to a waterway adjacent to the property

Aircraft wash water arriving on the pavement needs to be directed to an onsite waste water retention and pre-treatment system pre discharging to sewer

The Application

Tarmac Aircraft Washing

The Solution

Installation of a Model No. FE/LH/FF600/PM Diversion System

System includes a proprietary control panel and hydraulically (water) driven waste water/stormwater concrete pit

The System Function

During day to day operation absent aircraft washing the diversion valves are positioned to direct clean rainwater discharge to the natural water course.

When aircraft washing commences the interfaced hydraulic (water) drive line opens the trade waste diversion valve directing the polluted water stream to the onsite waste water treatment plant

When washing ceases the system is pre-programmed to capture any wash down water residue directing it to the treatment plant, then defaults to stormwater discharge mode.
