Septic tank calculation: Septic tank capacity were calculated base on the assumption that it will be cleaned every 6 months (about 180 days). According to sub-item 25.1.1, page 311, document (4) Water flow rate for calculation of septic tank base on following formular : QN = qng x N (l/day) Where: QN : Design drainage water flow rate (l/day) qng : Water supply flow rate for 1 person/day. For factory, qng = 25 (l/day.person). According to sub-item 1.2 page 7, document (4) N : Number of people working in 1 day. N = 2shift x 236 = 472 person Then: QN = 25 x 472 = 11.800 (l/day) = 11.8 m3/day. Total volume of the septic tank base on formular: W = Wn + Wc (m3) Where: Wn : Water volume of the septic tank, equal to 1.5 times the daily water drain (m3). Wc : Solid volume of the septic tank (m3) Wc = [a.T.(100-N1).b.c].N / [(100-W2).1000] a : Solid (amount of seed) from 1 person/day, equal to 0.6 l/day.person. T : Cleaning interval, T = 180 days. W1 : Water content ratio of the raw solid, W1 = 95% W2 : Water content ratio of the treated solid, W2 = 90% b : Factor taking into account the reduction of the solid volume after treated, b = 0.7.
