M50 - Twin sand filtration tank - N Gauge

Details

Comes in kit form and requires construction and painting.



: Industrial water treatment facilities cover a multitude of activities as part of the purification process before water can be returned to rivers and municipal drainage systems after use in manufacturing processes. Sometimes used water is recycled for local reuse but further processes must take place to eliminate possible health risks. Part of the purification process is the use of sand-filters, being one of the most important filtering tools. Dependant on waste-water volumes being processed the equipment used varies in size and complexity, with water either under pressure being pumped through or relying on gravity. Although this equipment is connected to other processes via pipework, when placed externally this interconnecting pipework is often run out of sight with supply and return pipes turning down into tanks, bunkers or semi-covered trenches below ground level. Stairway access to the top of the tanks is not uncommon.

We have selected a twin tank scheme of size that would be seen outside either singularly, doubled or multi-banked, suitable for N-Gauge 1:148 to 1:160 scale size modelling. If required, interlinking pipework can be achieved using our industrial Pipework & Fittings kits. The actual tank structure would be white, green or silver; the control-cabinet housing grey, and handrails yellow, however these colours are not exact being a matter of choice. We also suggest a card base be created and painted a hint of green-beige to represent the concrete hard-standing. A stairway is not included being available as a separate kit however a cat-ladder is included.

Model can be easily used in a variety of other industrial settings or as a stand alone model.
