Dimension of Each Tank
After you get overflow rate SORp , and detention time DT from
last page, you can calculate the area required and length of the tank. L,W--ft, Qp--gallon/day, SOR--gallon/ft2.day
L,W--ft, Qp--gallon/day, SOR--gallon/ft2.day
Your practice: input the variables you choose in the dialog box to
get the design parameters.
Input Area and select width(W) from Horizontal Flow Clarifier
If L:W is not in the specified range(Horizontal Flow Clarifier), recalculate.
Check the SOR at QA,d
If the SORA is not in the specified range(Design Factors), recalculate.
Calculate the depth of the tank
Check depth(d) and L:d (Horizontal Flow Clarifier), If they are not in the range, recalculate.
Free board=3 ft >12 inches (Wind current causes a wave on tank
surface and inhabit scum removal)
