Floating Oil Skimmer
Floating Oil Skimmer

Floating Oil Skimmers

Our triple-float oil skimmers are designed to free float on the water and remove non-emulsified oils from the surface. Constructed of stainless steel, they can be designed to be rigid or hinged to fit into small manhole openings in wastewater storage tanks.

Wall-Mounted Oil Skimmers

Our dual-float, wall-mounted oil skimmers are designed to remove non-emulsified oils from the surface of the water. Skimmers are constructed from stainless steel for corrosion resistance and sturdy enough for any application. The wall-mounted slide pipe allows the skimmer to float vertically but be kept close to the wall so it can be accessed easily. It can be built to accommodate any size sump.

Depending on the application, both skimmers can be custom-built for size and flow rate.

Debris Baskets
Stainless Steel Debris Baskets

Our Wash Bay Solutions Stainless Debris Baskets are designed to both protect the equipment and help control costs associated with solids removal from wash bay sumps. The baskets are for washing applications with an average amount of solids. The baskets fit snugly into the sump and catch all solids from the wash bay before they reach the recycle systems. When the basket is full, personnel remove it and set it to the side to dewater. A second basket can then be placed into the sump and washing can continue. Once the sediment in the first debris basket is de-watered, it can be easily disposed of according to local enforcement agency regulations.

Applications:

  • Heavy Equipment Washing
  • Aircraft Maintenance
  • Truck & Bus Washing
  • Forklift Wash Facilities
  • Military Bases

Benefits:

  • Low Maintenance
  • Heavy Duty Construction
  • Impervious to Non-petroleum Materials
  • Easy to Install

The baskets are constructed of stainless steel plates and stainless mesh. They come in standard sizes or custom sizes to fit into an existing sump. One or two handles on each basket make them easy to move around.

For the past 25 years, we have provided custom engineered systems for a variety of industrial and commercial applications in many exotic locations. We work with you to understand your needs and design a unique control system to maximize efficiency and reduce onsite monitoring. Some of the industries we have designed integrated PLC control systems include:

Wash Bays – Systems can control and monitor all reclaim and wash system components and flow rates, trouble-shoot systems and monitor all desired water quality aspects.

Rainwater Collection – Systems can monitor and control high and low collection tank levels, rainwater transfer pumps, valves and storage tank levels. The PLC control system, along with a motor control system, analog level sensors, and digital display screens, insures that all water collected will be available for use.

Water Treatment Management – Systems can control all phases of treatment systems, including pumps, tank level sensors, automatic valves, filters and water quality parameters.

Wash Tunnel Entry and Control – These custom-engineered tunnel entry light systems feature industrial traffic fixtures with swivel mounts affixed to the tunnel entry, heavy-duty Lexan construction and ultra-bright LED illumination.

Photocell or Proximity Detection Systems – These systems are extremely rugged, with an industrial design, and heavy cast aluminum housings. They feature interchangeable logic modules and output devices.

pH Control – These systems adjust the pH of the water and are highly recommended if the pH of the water is either too high or too low from using industrial cleaning solutions. These systems normally include metering pumps, tanks, controllers and switches.

Our control panels are assembled with the highest quality electrical components, including Allen Bradley, Siemens, Eaton, and GE. System design tailored to interface with existing hardware and software to minimize compatibility concerns. Designs and assembly are focused on reliability and durability for continuous use in rail yards, bus depots, mining and oilfield service, and other heavy industrial applications. All systems can be UL Listed and/or CSA Certified.

Features can include:

  • Stainless Steel Master control panel
  • NEMA 4X Rated
  • UL Rating (Optional CSA Rating)
  • Hands-Off-Automated (HOA) switches for all pumps
  • Onboard digital display
  • Modem for remote monitoring and control
  • User-friendly monitoring software design to facilitate the system’s management

With each control system, we will provide detailed drawings and documentation packages with easy-to-follow descriptions, schematics, and wiring diagrams. Our engineers can also provide field installation, start-up and training for onsite personnel.

Rain Diverter System (RDS)
Our Rain Diverter System (RDS) is a programmable controller with manual/automatic switch capability.

Many wash facilities do not have a roof over the wash pads so when it rains, rain water automatically flows through the pre-treatment system into the city sewers. It is illegal throughout the US, however, to allow rainwater to enter the sewer system.

Our RDS is a programmable controller with manual/automatic switch capability. When it senses rain, it turns on the pumps for a field-settable time to remove the floating oils and water from the wash pad through our pre-treatment system. After the water with the floating oils are removed, the RDS then shuts down the pre-treatment system to prevent rainwater from entering the sewer system. After the rain event, the RDS will reset to allow normal operation of the pre-treatment system.

KEY WORDS:

Interval Time – The time set by the client on the time delay relay located inside the RDS Control Panel. The is the length of time the air pump will run after detecting rain. It is factory set for 15 minutes, but can be readily changed to suit field conditions.

Equipment in the rain.
The Rain Diverter senses the rain and pumps the oil and water from the wash pad to a water pretreatment system.

Rain Sensitivity – The adjustment on the rain sensor that determines the amount of rainfall needed to trigger the sensor. It is factory set at ¼” of rainfall.

Vent Ring Adjustment – The adjustable ring at the base of the rain sensor that determines the duration of time after rain stops before the rain sensor resets. This is factory set for the most rapid reset time possible.

Reset Time – The time required for the Rain Sensor to reset. This can vary, depending upon ambient humidity, sunlight, etc. It can take from 1-2 hours up to 24 hours.

Why Do I Need a Re-Cyke® TWB System?



These complete wash systems are ideal for washing equipment and vehicles at sites without incurring any construction costs, delays, or permanent structures. Used on military bases, construction sites, and at any facility requiring transportability, these cost effective systems can be configured for a wide range of applications and up and running in a few weeks. Recycling wash water also eliminates EPA and local impact fees, reduces sanitary sewer costs, and water restrictions.

How Does the Re-Cyke® TWB System Work?

The complete system consists of a self-contained aboveground wash pad and an enclosed equipment room. The pad includes a 12” high ramped structure capable of handling up to 40 tons/axle and tracked vehicles, an integrated water collection system to isolate solids and divert liquids, and a solids wash-down feature. The enclosed equipment room sits adjacent to the wash pad and contains complete water recycling, high-volume demucking, and high-pressure washing equipment.

As vehicles are cleaned on the pad, the wash/rinse water collects beneath the pad and is transferred to the closed loop recycling system for treatment and reuse so there is no off-site discharging. The solids removed from the vehicle are automatically washed to a collection section for future removal and disposal.

STANDARD FEATURES:

Elevated Wash Pad with Ramp

  • Totally Transportable in Modular Sections
  • Designed for drive-through or in-out operation
  • Heavy steel I-beam support framework
  • Unique fluid/solid separation weirs
