As a means to help preserve capital and deal with today’s uncertainties, we have partnered with a national leasing company to help you get the equipment you need to continue running your business. For a limited time, they are offering deferred payments for 90 days.
Hopefully, things will be settled down by then!
They offer 24-72 month leases with a simple application process. If you are interested, let us know and we work together to see what your monthly payments would look like.

oil-absorbent-bags.jpg

Our Polishing Pack Oil Absorbent Bags keeps your systems running cleaner and reduces environmental concerns by removing oil-related contaminants from water in sumps, recycling systems, and oil-water separators.

Benefits

  • Excellent filtering capabilities
  • Easy to handle and dispose of
  • Cost efficient
  • Custom shapes available to fit most separators

How do they work?

Water containing free oils enters the filter through the poly mesh cover. As the water flows around the multi-faceted oil-absorbing foam cells, the free oils are absorbed into the foam.

All water is repelled and continues to pass through the filter after the free oils are removed.

Typical Installation

Although they can be placed directly in the sump, the bags are typically installed with a flow dissipater plate in the clean water chamber of the oil water separator before the water is discharged to the sewer or surroundings.

They act as a polishing system by removing any floating oil sheens that may have passed through the separator. If the local sewer requirements are strict, the polishing system is highly recommended!

demucking-treatment-system-1280x529-1280x529.png

We have developed a revolutionary heavy-duty wash and treatment system by integrating our demucking system with our clarifier oil water separator system.

Using low flow pumps, moderate pressure and specialized nozzles, our robustly- designed demucker systems can quickly clean large trucks, tracked vehicles or any heavy equipment caked with mud, clay, ice, or muck – using only 20 gpm of water.

After washing, we can then process this water through our stainless steel clarifier oil water separator to reduce your environmental liabilities. Even though full of solids, oils and grease, our separator will effectively treat this wash water for re-use or discharge. 

Fast and effective cleaning with low water treatment costs – definitely a win-win situation!

Features:

  • High-Efficiency Diaphragm or Multi Stage Pump, 20 GPM @ 1000 PSI
  • Stainless Steel Construction
  • NEMA 4X Integrated Control Panel
  • Multi-directional Stream-to-Cone Gun & Industrial grade hose reel
  • Poly water storage tank
  • Stainless steel clarifier separator designed to remove 99% of oil droplets
  • Inclined plates to remove solids
  • Sludge hopper to capture and contain settleable solids
  • Electric or Air diaphragm transfer pump
  • Internal oil storage tank

Optional Features Available:

  • UL Listings
  • Remote Motor Controls
  • Heating Systems
  • Automated Wash Monitors
  • Portable Wash Containment Pad
  • Odor Control Systems
  • Polishing Packs

Reduce your environmental liabilities and get the power of a wash monitor with a fraction of the water usage!

Wash Water Treatment System For Commercial Trucking Industry
Many companies choose to haul this water away, but a more efficient way of removing this cost is by recycling and reusing the water.

With more and more investment going into equipment, projecting a clean, Green, and professional image is a priority for many companies. Whether it is a tanker, dozer or oilfield tools, regular washing and water recycling is an integral part of presenting that professional image, reducing maintenance costs, and preventing damage to their equipment and the
environment.

Robustly designed and manufactured for the heavy industrial applications, our heavy-duty, multi-stage, closed loop treatment systems clean up the water for re-use.  By simplifying the water and solids handling, many clients are able to both increase production and reduce costs.

APPLICATIONS:

  • Commercial Trucking
  • Locomotive
  • Mining
  • Marine
  • Forklift
  • Oil and Gas Drilling

The first stage of this filtration process is the solids handling system. We develop site-specific solutions for our clients to eliminate as many solids as possible before running the water through to the next stage of filtration.

Truck Wash Water Treatment System
Our Commercial Truck Wash Systems are heavy-duty, multi-stage reclaim and discharge systems, engineered and manufactured for the trucking and transportation industries.

In order to separate any oils from the water, the water is processed through a stainless steal oil-water separator, which separates out smaller suspended solids, oil and water. Any settle-able solids and dispersed non-emulsified oils are removed at this step in filtration.

After the oil-water separator, the water is pumped though several filtration steps including multi-media, blended activated carbon, and corona discharged ozone to reduce any contaminants to
fewer than 10 microns in size, including emulsified oils, waxes, and other volatile organic
compounds.

STANDARD FEATURES:

  • Stainless Steel Construction
  • High-Efficiency Pumps
  • Corona Discharge Ozonation System
  • Solids Handling & Separation
  • TSS & FOG Reduction
  • Multi-Stage / Multi-Pass Filtration
  • Pressurized Blended Carbon Polishing Filter
  • Auto-Backwashing Filters
  • NEMA 4X Control Panel with PLC controller

Depending on the location, many options are available to maximize the efficiency of the wastewater treatment system including:

OPTIONAL FEATURES:

  • Can be configured with existing equipment
  • SCADA and remote monitoring UL/CSA Listing
  • Transportable equipment rooms

Frequently Asked Questions

section-179-tax-deduction.jpg

You can save money on your taxes when you purchase equipment by taking advantage of Section 179 of the IRS tax code.  Section 179 allows business taxpayers to deduct the cost of certain property as an expense when the property is placed in service.  It does not have to be depreciated out over several years. The Section 179 deduction applies to tangible personal property such as machinery and equipment purchased or leased for use in a trade or business, and if the taxpayer elects, qualified real property.

For tax years beginning after 2017, the TCJA increased the maximum Section 179 expense deduction from $500,000 to $1 million. The phase-out limit increased from $2 million to $2.5 million. These amounts are indexed for inflation for tax years beginning after 2018.  For more information, see

indoor-wash-bay-1280x550.png

Issue: An equipment rental company was expanding and they moved into a new facility
without a wash pad. There was plenty of indoor space but no outdoor space to put in a
new wash pad. The property owner did not want them to cut concrete or substantially
alter the property but our client still needed be able to wash their equipment onsite,
contain the water and discharge it properly to the sewer.

Solution: For a complete wash system, we recommended installing a SPT-10 Clarifier
Oil Water Separator System
, an industrial-grade electric heated water pressure washer
with two portable hose reels, and a portable wash containment pad.
The portable wash pad allows them to wash as much as possible without any major
modifications to the property. They will also be able to move the entire system to a new
facility, if needed. The wash pad was equipped with pedestrian grating along both sides
so that the service personnel can work safely on a dry surface!
