CFD analysis and equalisation tank design


An optimal equalisation tank design is the crucial factor in deciding the life cycle cost of a flood control solution. Our specialists apply Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations to optimise tank design.

Efforts at the design phase to optimise and validate the proposed design ensures the equalisation tank is suitable for current and future demands, for low and high flows and is self-cleaning, reducing wear and smell by continuously removing deposits and solids.

Grundfos has produced "Design of Stormwater Tanks – Recommendations and Layout", to assist application engineers, designers, planners and users of retention tanks. The handbook covers every aspect of retention tank design from sizing to installation. Contact Grundfos for more information.
