Mixing Tank (with loose lid)

A mixing tank contains three internal baffles.  These baffles promote a mixing action between chemicals and water as they pass through the tank to dilute the chemicals sufficiently before being discharged to sewer.

What size tank will my business need?

In general, the capacity needs to be sufficient to retain the waste water for at least one hour for any chemicals present to be sufficiently diluted in the water before being discharged to sewer.

The most common capacity tank is 100 litres for single sink. However, the appropriate size, or capacity, tank will be nominated by your local water authority under your trade waste agreement. You will need to contact your local water authority so they can determine the capacity applicable to your application. To find your local water authority, click here.

Capacity: 100 litres – 2,000 litres

  • Above ground: 100 – 2,000 litres
  • Below ground: 250 – 2,000 litres
  • Larger capacity tanks are available by special order
  • Where there are space limitations, an equivalent capacity tank can be custom made to fit the available space
