*3D-Gefälle* im Tank verhindert Sedimentablagerungen

(PowerPoint)
Es geht um die Vorteile einer neuen industriellen Waschmaschine, mit Tank ist hier wohl der Wassertank gemeint. Ich habe das Gefühl, dass es hier um etwas anderes als 'slope' geht, kann aber im Internet nichts finden.

shaped/sloping base
Explanation:
I think the idea is that the bottom of the tank is not flat (so it's 3-D) to avoid sediment collecting over the whole of the bottom. Maybe it has a slope to some kind of trap door to scrape out the sediment.
