TunnelMAX® – Reliable Construction water treatment plants

Focus on Footprint

As our major cities move toward higher and higher population densities, space for infrastructure projects becomes more complex to obtain. This complexity relates to land costs, stake-holder and community buy in as well as environmental challenges generated by the construction works. As such, there is an ever increasing demand on contractors to operate from “postage stamp” sites.

This results in very little space available for water treatment systems. To complicate matters, water treatment systems are now expected to reach tighter discharge limits, as the traditional “Blue Book Values” are replaced by ANZECC Water quality guidelines.

Overall, this means water treatment plants are expected to achieve more, often in footprints less than 100 – 150m2.

The TunnelMAX® is a surface mounted modular treatment system designed to accommodate high solids loads if they occur and otherwise treat the water to a high quality for discharge – providing a compact, robust treatment-and-dewatering process in one system.

The system has been designed for automation, reliability and minimal operator input and can be configured for 2 – 50m3/hr of water treatment. TunnelMAX® can be adapted to include additional filtration steps to target removal of metals, hydrocarbons, PFAS or other substances which can be present in the surrounding ground water table.

Selection is site specific depending upon intended tunnelling methods, geology and groundwater infiltration rates – contact Hydroflux® for assistance in selecting a system to suit your needs.
