Muck & Slurry Storage Systems
Atlas panels being very versatile can be used for totally
contained or weeping wall, middens and dirty water below
ground storage tanks.
The answer to all these problems are Atlas Prestressed
Horizontal and Vertical Silage Pit systems.
Waste management regulations are becoming stricter,
so it is therefore essential that waste is controlled
and totally contained.
The Atlas system has been designed to do this function
trouble free, without the need for expensive maintenance
Atlas panels are designed to combat the corrosive properties
of animal waste and can be used for the construction
of different types of waste containment.
Dirty Wall Containment
The Atlas system for dirty water containment has many
advantages over other systems.
Using 140 thick double loading panels tanks can be
constructed any size because Atlas concrete panels come
in 1 meter wide modules with leak free seals. For total
containment Hydrotite jointing must be placed in the
tongue and groove, this swells when it becomes wet forming
a good seal. The chamfered edges are then filled with
mastic in the inside of the tank which is then painted
with bitumastic paint to give complete containment.
A simple three sided structure of panels set in a concrete
base as a containment for solid matter..
Weeping Wall Middens
These are designed for total containment but allow
any liquid to drain off and run to a suitable collection
The panels used for this have four specially constructed
slots in each to allow liquid to run off which is collected
in a channel formed on the outside of the pit with Atlas
concrete T beams. The slots stop short of the midden
floor to leave a floating bed for even distribution.
The panels are manufactured in different lengths to
allow for different pit cavities and can be capped with
Atlas cattle slats or solid concrete panels with pump
access holes cast on request.
Atlas panels are completely durable and resistant to
damage and having tongue and groove edges they interlock
to form an exceptionally long life containment system.
