In the world of wastewater management, Alcat Precast stands out for its cutting-edge technology, and the Clearstream Wastewater System is a prime example. Let’s walk through the process of setting up the tank and configuring the timers/control panel to ensure optimal performance.
Setting Up The Tank
By following the steps below, you can ensure the efficient and trouble-free set up of your tank.
- Choose an appropriate location for the tank, considering factors such as soil conditions, accessibility, and regulatory requirements.
- Ensure that the tank is placed on a stable, level surface to prevent any structural issues.
- Carefully lower the tank into the prepared excavation, following the guidelines provided in the installation manual.
- Confirm that the tank is level, and adjust as necessary.
Inlet and Outlet Connections
- Install the ventilation system to allow proper airflow within the tank.
- Adequate ventilation is essential for promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria responsible for wastewater treatment.
Backfilling and Compaction
- Gradually backfill the tank with the specified material, compacting it in layers.
- Avoid excessive compaction, which could damage the tank structure.
Alarm System Installation
- If applicable, install the alarm system as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
- The alarm system is a critical component for alerting users to any issues that may arise within the tank.
- Conduct a thorough assessment of all connections, seals, and components.
- Ensure that the tank is securely in place and meets all safety and regulatory standards.
Fill the Tank
- Gradually fill the tank with water to the recommended operating level.
- Verify that the water level is sufficient to prevent triggering the airline alarm in the control panel.
Wiring the Aerator to the Control Panel
Now that we’ve covered the crucial steps of setting up the tank, let’s take a look at the process of setting up the control panel.
Identify the Wires
- Two red wires from the solenoid go to the auxiliary.
- Blue and yellow wires from the pressure switch connect to the air sensor.
- Be cautious not to mix up the air sensor wires and solenoid wires to prevent tripping the breaker on the control panel.
Aerator Power Connection
- Black wire connects to the line.
- White wire connects to neutral.
- Leave the green (ground) wire loose for later connection when tying both CRS together.
- Double-check all connections to ensure they are secure and properly tightened.
With these steps completed, you’re ready to move on to configuring the timer and control panel settings.
Setting the Timer for Clearstream Wastewater System
The timer plays a crucial role in regulating the pumping process in the tank. Follow these steps to set it up seamlessly:
Accessing the Timer Settings
- Navigate through the control panel options until you reach the timer settings.
- Options typically include “gravity” or “dose discharge.”
Select Dose Discharge
- Choose “dose discharge” and press enter.
Adjust On Time
- Scroll up to adjust the on time according to your system’s requirements.
- Press enter to confirm.
Configure Off Time
- Scroll down to set the off time, ensuring a balanced cycle.
- Confirm the setting by pressing enter.
- After configuring the timer, a brief delay occurs before the aerator and system kick into action.
- Pay attention to indicator lights on the panel. A yellow light may indicate an issue with the airline, often due to insufficient water in the tank.
Red Light Alert
- A red light signals a problem in the pump tank. Consult the manual for specific troubleshooting steps.
By following these tank setup steps, you lay the foundation for the efficient operation of the Clearstream Wastewater System. Regular maintenance and adherence to the manufacturer’s guidelines will contribute to the longevity and reliability of the entire system.
