Technical Data PlatinXL (Connection option DN100)
Under all circumstances, the following points must be clarified prior to installation:
- The structural suitability of the ground according to DIN 18196
- Maximum groundwater levels which occur and drainage capability of the subsoil
- Types of load which occur, e.g. traffic loads
An expert ground report should be requested from the local planning authority to determine the physical characteristics of the subsoil.
To ensure that sufficient space is available for working, the area of the trench must exceed the dimensions of the tank by > 100mm on each side; the distance from solid constructions must be at least 1000mm.
If the depth of the trench is > 1250mm an embankment must be designed according to DIN 4124. The construction site must be horizontal and plane and must guarantee sufficient load-bearing capacity.
The depth of the trench must be dimensioned so that the maximum earth coverage above the tank is not exceeded. To use the system throughout the entire year, it is necessary to install the tank and those parts of the system which conduct water in the frost-free area. The frost-free depth is usually approximately 600mm – 800mm; precise information in this regard can be obtained from the responsible authority.
A layer of compacted, round-grain gravel (grain size 8/16, thickness approximately 100-150mm) is applied as the foundation.
Connection of multiple tanks
Two or more tanks are connected via the assemble services by means of Graf special seals and basic pipes (to be provided at construction site). The apertures must be drilled to the corresponding size using only the Graf special crown bit. It must be ensured that the distance between the tanks is at least 600mm. The pipes must project at least 200mm into the tanks.
