Home > Products > Trade Waste Tanks > Cooling and Straining Tank
A cooling and straining tank is used to hold and retain warm or hot waste water. This is so the water can cool to a legally acceptable temperature before being discharged out to the sewer system. This prevents the growth of algae in the sewer system. The first tank chamber includes a removable straining basket to trap lint, hair and other fibrous matter before the waste water enters the second cooling chamber.
The appropriate size, or capacity, tank will be nominated by your local water authority under your trade waste agreement. The maximum allowable temperature of the waste water discharged to sewer is also set by your local water authority. Often this is around 38°C. You will need to contact your local water authority so they can determine the capacity and exact temperature applicable to your application. To find your local water authority, click here.
