Flow equalization is method used to overcome the operational problems and flow rate variations to improve the performance of downstream processes and to reduce the size & cost of downstream treatment facilities. To prevent flow rate, temperature, and contaminant concentrations from varying widely, flow equalization is often used.
Give a relatively constant flowrate to the downstream operations and processes
Variations occur characteristically in domestic wastewater flow rate and composition as a result of cyclic activities of the human population. Additional variations are commonly imposed by a combination of:
The design of equalization facilities requires evaluation and selection of a number of features:
