2. Traditional Poly-Tank


Standard Poly-tank Wastewater Treatment System

Our standard wastewater treatment system consists of a series of cone-bottom poly-tanks connected by pipe crossovers and a collection of pumps, filters and float controls. All controlled by a UL Listed Control Panel. The actual placement of the tanks can be altered in the field to accommodate available space in your washpad equipment room.

Once the tanks are set in place, the final plumbing connections are made during the initial installation process. The tanks are durable and easy to access and maintain.

Aluminum Wastewater Treatment System

In some cases, a washpad system may be better suited for the aluminum version of our wastewater treatment systems. The basic functions and components of the aluminum version are the same as the Poly version, but aluminum does offer some advantages.

The aluminum version…

  • …is a more self-contained package, which does eliminate some initial installation time in the field since the internal plumbing connections are completed by our Fabrication Department during fabrication.
  • …makes it possible to fit the equipment in some wash rack equipment rooms that don’t accommodate the size of the traditional poly tanks due to the different footprint.
  • …contains built-in forklift pockets, which allow you to easily relocate the system with a standard forklift.

Evans Equipment & Environmental is your Design System  Whether it’s our standard poly-tank system or our aluminum version, we can build and install your wastewater treatment system to ensure that your washpad remains compliant. Our fabrication department provides quality custom-built products, with the additional versatility to solve space or treatment requirements in your wash rack.
