The use of a Bark Filter is a traditional process of removing odour from polluted air commonly created during industrial processes. The moist polluted air is filtered through a media such as bark to eliminate the contaminants.
Bark Filters are traditionally built from timber, but the Kliptank design is able to be used for this process.
Using a Kliptank for this project allowed a fixed project price for the customer as well as a solution that could be relocated at a later date.
The Trickle filter tank came about due to engineers thinking outside the box. Councils with few ratepayers don't have deep pockets - hence the need to investigate a solution that more suitably fitted the budget.
Using the Kliptank as a Trickle Filter rather than a Concrete structure came in at about 1/3 the cost.
The Kliptank is effectively a tube that has been filled with plastic media that allow water to trickle over the top of the media and flow out the base of the tank to a further treatment process.
Kliptank were also able to manufacture the ladders and platform for accessing the tank spray boom located in the centre of the tank.
