Basin cleaning

A new mixing and flushing unit for cleaning retention basins has been introduced by ITT Flygt. Designated as the Flygt Hydroejector, the unit acts as a mixer when water levels are high, keeping solids in suspension so they can be readily pumped away. When basin water levels are low, the unit automatically becomes a flushing device, with water discharged through the ejector pipe in a powerful jet which removes organic matter from the basin floor and walls.
