Recycling Depots

Site No1 London Borough of Harrow (Manual System)
MWT have installed a Dust Suppression for the above client at Waste, Refuse and Recycling Centre in Wealdstone.
The system includes 3 x R6S Rainguns mounted above the refuse which is being recycled the systems is connected to the existing mains water supply with the necessary WRAS approved double check valve installation. The system is operated manually via lever operated valves when required as the site is used by the general public we have installed a lockable master valve which will stop any unauthorized people from operating the system.

Site No2 Wolverhampton Site (Automatic System)
MWT supplied and installed 2 x R25S Rainguns mounted upon the top of the picking shed with a throw of 30mtrs in still air condition in high winds this will change accordingly. Each Raingun was fitted with a 24v AC solenoid valve and each Raingun will be operated separately on a 2 station controller. 7.5kw three phase pump will be fitted at the existing storage tank which will be controlled via a pressure switch, 90mm HPPE mains will run from the pump to the Rainguns.

The system will operate as follows:
The controller will open the solenoid valve thus dropping the pressure in the pipe from the pump unit which in turn will start the pump (From the pressure switch) when both Solenoid valves have closed the pressure in the pipework will rise and therefore will stop the pump which is now on standby until the system is required again.


Micronclean Water Storage Tank

MWT was asked by Micronclean Ltd to quote for a water storage to replace their old sectional galvanised tank which was now unsafe as Microclean need the water for the laundry factory in the week. MWT would arranged for the work to be done over the weekend.

Our engineers went in on Friday morning to prep for the works when the factory stop using the water on lunch time on the Friday, we dismantled the old tank (and placed into skips ), pressure washed the existing concrete base, erected a new 90M3 galvanised sectional water storage fitted with Greenseal liner & sectional steel cover, reconnect existing water supply & pump suction,  new tank was back in use by Saturday afternoon.

MWT supply all types of storage tanks to suit any application.

We were delighted when Mick from Micronclean gave us feedback…

“Good Morning Gents, A big thank you for a great job done ,tank looks good , your lads worked hard to get job done”

Underground Water Storage Tanks

Underground water storage tanks are used for underground storage of potable drinking water, water for livestock, rainwater collection, municipal water for household use, emergency water supplies, wastewater and can also be used as a water reservoir for water irrigation systems; watering race courses or sports fields.

There are many good reasons for getting an underground water tank. For example, if you need a water tank on a farm or nature reserve, having it underground protects it from potential damage caused by the animals. If space is in short supply, particularly in private homes, underground water tanks can be situated under driveways or lawns. A water tank situated above ground can be an unsightly view, so having it underground keeps it hidden from view but more than that, having it underground offers protection from potential vandalism, tampering, fires or natural disasters.

Maddison Water Technology provide a complete range of both above ground and below ground water storage tanks. These tanks cover the applications for potable water, rainwater, fire protection water, recycled water, grey and waste water, Leachate (from landfill) water and liquid fertiliser water. You should use Maddison Water Technology for your underground water storage needs and here’s why…

Maddison Water Technology offer two storage tanks of the underground variety. They are; Underground GRP Cylindrical Water Storage Tanks and Polyethylene Underground Water Storage Tanks. These below ground storage tanks are cylindrical and manufactured using glass-reinforced Polyester. These tanks, offered by Maddison Water Technology, are available in several sizes with the option of concrete-on-granular surround.

Redbridge Culture & Leisure

Maddison Water Technology Ltd have worked with the above for many years installing and looking after their Bowling Green Irrigation Systems.

We were contacted to try and find a solution for the proposed new allotments which had no water or electricity on the site.

We suggested initially sinking a 4” (100mm) borehole to find out if in fact there was sufficient water on site, we arranged for this to be undertaken to a depth of 15mtrs (You are allowed to abstract 20m3 of water per day without having to have an abstraction license) water was found so we proceeded to install a small submersible pump unit which would transfer the water from the borehole into a 22m3 polyethylene water storage tank.

The submersible pump is powered by using solar/wind power. The water from the tank will be used to water crops on the allotments.

MWT completed the whole project including installing palisade security fencing as a compound.

Do you need an underground water storage tank?

At this most wonderful time of the year an underground storage tank may not be top of your Christmas list, but we hope by the time you’ve reached the end of this blog post your mind will be well and truly changed.

Above ground water tanks are the more conventional water tank type, but have you considered an underground water tanks as an alternative? They’re surprisingly versatile and provide some genuine advantages compared to standard water tanks.

An underground water tank has a wide range of uses and applications

  • Store water harvested from rainwater – an increasingly popular method for gardeners and horticulturalists
  • Store municipal water from a range of sources for household use
  • Can be used as a water reservoir for water irrigation systems – useful for large areas requiring regular watering such as race courses and sports fields
  • Emergency supplies of water can be stored safely underground for a long period
  • Emergency water supply for fire fighting
  • Water for livestock

There’s a few drawbacks with underground water tanks

  • Underground water storage tanks can be pricier than above-ground tanks as they’re more durable and the construction technique is more specialised
  • The installation of underground water tanks can be a more costly and difficult process compared to installing above-ground water tanks
  • A pump is needed to extract water from underground storage tanks, while above ground tanks may only require gravity to provide enough pressure, especially if a water tank stand is deployed.

Some very good reasons for getting an underground water tank

  • If space is limited, especially in private homes, underground water tanks can be located under driveways or lawns
  • Above-ground water tanks can be an eyesore whereas underground water tanks can be neatly hidden away from view
  • Water stored underground is safe from potential vandals and tampering
  • Underground tanks offer protection from fires and other natural disasters
  • If you want to locate your underground tank on a farm or nature reserve, underground tanks offer protection from potential damage by animals.

Going underground with Maddison

As you can see underground water tanks are superior in a number of scenarios, particularly in the long term, despite the additional cost and installation costs.

Maddison Water Technology provide two storage tanks of the underground variety – Underground GRP Cylindrical Water Storage Tanks and Polyethylene Underground Water Storage Tanks.

These subterranean tanks can be filled with waste water, harvested rain water and potable (drinking) water.

All our ‘below ground’ storage tanks are cylindrical, manufactured using glass-reinforced Polyester and available in several sizes with the option for concrete-on-granular surround.

So we hope now that you’re convinced about the versatility of the humble below-ground water storage tank. And it’s still not too late to update your Xmas Wishlist… is Santa going to need a bigger sleigh?

Dust Suppression Systems – Benefits And Applications

Air pollution has come under the spotlight this month after The Supreme Court ordered the Government to take action on air quality, after its failure to meet legal limits for air pollution.

The Government must submit new air quality plans to the European Commission no later than the end of this year.

While the case was brought in relation to the UK’s failure to comply with EU law for setting limits for NO2 pollution in areas across the UK, it demonstrates the importance of air quality in the political and social agenda.

Industrial and recreational sector-created dust emissions are among the many causes of air pollution.

As such, the benefits of efficient and effective Dust Suppression Systems are proven and manifold.

Unquestionably, the primary benefit is the vital role they play in meeting safety, health and environmental legislation requirements.

Systems not only reduce the impact of air pollution caused by airborne dust – including coal, sand, gravel, stone and that generated through processing industrial and domestic waste – they help safeguard the health of employees and those living in the local community.

Dust Suppression Systems can protect from harmful respiratory diseases, as well as skin and eye irritations, significantly reduce the risk of fire and dust explosions and increase workplace visibility.

Creating a healthier working environment has the added advantage of helping to boost employee morale and productivity.

Working within their various applications, a well-designed Dust Suppression Systems can also:

• Prevent unpleasant odours

• Save money by reducing site maintenance, clean-up costs and equipment wear

• Establish and maintain good community relations

With more than 40 years’ experience, Maddison Water Technology supplies individually-designed Dust Suppression Systems, based around our own successful system, to meet our clients’ specific requirements.

There is a multitude of applications, within both the industrial and recreational sectors, and typical examples include:


Dust control for quarry operators remains an important issue, with many opportunities for airborne dust during the blasting, crushing, screening and transportation processes.

Legislation and local planning regulations require dust suppression for the benefit of workers and those living in the local community.

Coal Yards and Dust Mounds

Suppressing coal dust emissions is vital to worker safety due to the possibility of coal dust explosions and also reduces the cost of maintaining material handling equipment.

While clouds of fugitive coal dust, whipped up by the wind during loading and unloading shipments, may not exceed air quality standards they can create a nuisance for nearby businesses and residents.

Emissions from dust mounds are equally detrimental.

Haul Roads

A dust-free haul road results in increased workplace safety, including better driver visibility, and is a money-saving initiative as it extends the life of vehicle tyres.

Domestic and Industrial Waste and Recycling Centres

Any industry processing waste materials and handling fine organic dusts are at significant risk from fire or explosion.

Nuisance dust also creates an unpleasant working environment and health hazard for employees alongside housekeeping issues.

Construction and Demolition Sites

Dust pollution from demolition and construction sites can impact on the health and quality of life of builders and contractors as well as residents living nearby.

Horse Riding Arenas, Riding Schools and Stables

Dust particles emitted in indoor and outdoor arenas, manèges, pens, walkers and stables can enter the respiratory system of not only the animals but their human trainers, riders and instructors.

These same issues affect greyhound racing track dogs and workers.

Alice Through The Looking Glass

Maddison Water Technology has recently supplied and erected 2 no. TK45/3 sectional water storage tanks each with a capacity of 337,550 litres at Longcross Studios.

The stored water was to be used for the special effects on the new film “Alice : Through The Looking Glass”
