The other parameters are as follows: 3'' charging and water dump valve, lighting 12 (24) V, a staircase with a platform for maintenance. The 12.5 m3 tank is equipped with a centrifugal pump (capacity - 600 l/min., Ø3'') with a motor pump, which provides quick filling of the tank and sprayers, preparation of treatment solution, agitation and washing.

The self-priming function on the centrifugal pump provides filling from a reservoir from a depth of 3 m. Liquid to be pumped is filtrated by one Ø3" suction filter.
