Drainage and Seepage Tank
A self-contained facility for study of
flow through permeable media. The tank has a toughened glass front and
aluminium back to permit the insertion of pressure tappings as required.
Six tapping points are provided. The design of the side supports allows
free access to the interior with minimum sight obstruction. Supply
includes sump tank, pump, starter and control valve. Also a dye
injection system and a selection of models.
• Comprehensive instruction manual with data sheets and student experiments.
• Working section 1500mm x 100mm x 600mm
The bed of the tank is made from painted
mild steel. The sides of the tank are supported and sealed by a well
proven method which allows free access to the interior and results in
minimum sight obstruction. One side is of toughened glass to give good
scratch-free visibility over a long period of use while the other is
made of aluminium which permits the insertion of pressure tapping points
as required. The ends of the tank are made of steel plate.
Adjustable overflows are provided close
to each end of the tank so that constant water levels may be maintained
in each half of the tank. These may be lowered to a position close to
the bed of the tank for some experiments to provide sub-soil drainage.
The equipment is self-contained, requiring only an initial fill with
cold water and connection to the electricity supply. The sump tank can
be emptied to a laboratory drain
