Static Sand Trap

Usage Function

The static sand trap is a calm tank inside which the fluid velocity is reduced, allowing the sedimentation of suspended solids. The tank is vertically oriented and uses gravity to separate water from sand or other suspended materials. The sand settles at the bottom of the tank and is periodically removed through a specific discharge nozzle. The clarified water is discharged through an overflow channel located at the top of the reactor.



Gauge deflector

Technical Characteristics

The tank consists fundamentally of an inlet section for abrupt damping of incoming turbulent flow, an area for sand accumulation (the bottom of the tank), and an outlet section for clarified water directed to subsequent treatments.


  • Ease of installation;
  • No energy consumption and no electrical connections required;
  • Reduced footprint (underground installation);
  • Lower operating costs
  • Long service life.


  • Presence of a hydro-extractor or extraction well at the bottom of the tank


  • Inlet/outlet perforations
  • Separation baffle for compartment formation
  • Protective coating for external walls
