Reservoir Desilting

Membrane and Clay Lined Reservoir Desilting

Membrane lined reservoir desilting

Over time a membrane or clay lined reservoir will silt up, reducing the overall capacity of the reservoir. Desilting a reservoir¬† peridocally, will return it to it’s original capacity.

However, desilting a membrane or clay lined reservior can be tricky if you don’t want to damage the membrane in the process. Using traditional dredging methods is a sure way of damaging the membrane during the operation, and costing you more than you bargined for.

At Jex Plant, we are the only company in the UK that has the equipment and expertise to desilt membrane or clay lined reservoirs without causing damage to the membrane. Using our unique silt pumping methods we can remove the silt from your reservior quickly and easily.

If you have a membrane or clay lined reservoir that has reduced capacity due to silting, call us on 0845 689 0007 or 07768 234336 to have it brought back to full capacity without the cost of replacing the membrane.
