Whether you know them as Silt Stoppers, Lamellas, or even Plate Clarifiers Erosion Control Co Limited is currently building a bigger one to add to our current line-up which we’d like you to help us name!  

We currently have our standard Silt Stopper & also a “Compact” so we would be looking at a name for the new, larger unit. This unit has been designed to allow for a higher flow rate while still keeping the “footprint” to a minimum – and that means we will be able to cater for those sites that have needed to process higher volumes of water.

Here’s a reminder about what our Silt Stoppers are designed for:

  • The ideal mobile gravity settlement device to provide a large settling area within a relatively small footprint making them the perfect option for space constrained sites
  • The Silt Stopper can be up to 20 times more efficient than conventional settlement tanks and ponds of similar footprint
  • The inclined plates in the units minimise the distance suspended particles need to travel to drop out to the bottom, promoting sedimentation and increasing overall efficiency
  • The Silt Stopper provides water clarification for a range of applications, including pumping and de-watering, drilling and piling, de-silting and dredging, vehicle wheel washing, process water treatment, groundwater treatment. In addition, site runoff can be treated either for discharge off-site or reused
  • The Silt Stopper can be fitted with a solar-powered telephonic PH and Turbidity monitor for real-time online reporting, including text alerts when water quality reaches levels of concern

And, because every site is different, Erosion Control Co Limited provides customisable options with every Silt Stopper to suit your operation’s specific needs, including:

  • Installation and maintenance
  • The supply and installation of all pumping equipment required to run the Silt Stopper water clarifying system
  • Flow automated to allow clients to work on what they’re best at while not having to worry about water issues
  • For more information on the Silt Stopper you can download the brochure here

Plus, as always, Erosion Control Co Limited offers our full support and expertise to every client using our systems.
