Store-and-recycle drainage helps to conserve water
16 October 2007
Meeting the increasing need to conserve water, the Supradrain drain-and-store system from Jones of Oswestry provides an eco-friendly solution to the management of water used for large-scale cleaning of vehicles and premises.
The innovation responds to on-going government initiatives, supported by Water UK and water companies, aimed at helping businesses to conserve water and reduce the costs of water consumption and waste water disposal.
Ideal for applications in factories, commercial yards and vehicle depots where water runs to ground to conventional drains, Supradrain provides fast drainage and substantial storage capacity within its extra large channel system.
For water recycling applications, the channel design manages water in two ways.
Collected water can be piped off to a recycling unit or conventionally released to the drainage system through an innovative controlled feed mechanism to avoid sewer overload and flow-back that can cause flooding.
Jones of Oswestry provides site assessment and consultation on the upgrading of existing surface drainage in wash areas and yards with a suitable Supradrain system.
Optional accessories include oil interceptors to remove oil pollutants from collected water prior to recycling or release to the public sewer system.
