Our MM Series Wash Water Treatment Systems are heavy-duty, multi-media filtration systems, engineered and manufactured for the drilling, mining, trucking and transportation industries. Treated wash water from the water treatment system will be clean enough to be re-used or discharged into the sanitary sewer.

The MM system consists of a multi-media filter, and/or carbon polishing filter and a large solids screen filter.  After passing through solids settling, the water is processed through the MM system and filtered so that the water contains no particles greater than 40 microns in size.    Processed water passing through the system will be free of substantially all emulsified oils, waxes and other volatile organic compounds with only limited soaps and detergents remaining in the treated water.

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.

Problem: A car dealer moving into a new facility with a limited time lease. The property owner did not want them to cut concrete or substantially alter the property but the dealer needed to be able to wash dozens of cars per week 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, a cold water pressure washer with a portable hose reel, and a portable wash containment pad. This allows them to wash as many cars as possible without any major modifications to the property.  They will also be able to move the entire system to a new facility at the end of their lease. With their input, we helped them layout the system to maximize their space.

After installation of the pad, however, they noticed the concrete floor slope much slighter than originally thought and that the wash water was not moving off the pad well.  This flat slope left his staff working in standing water and the SPT-10 not being able to process the wash water properly.

To improve this drainage issue, our staff developed a low cost under layer for the wash pad which created a slight slope for the water.  We then installed this under layer and re-piped the in-take piping for the SPT-10 so the wash water flows freely.  The general manager of the facility is very pleased with our systems and service.

Water Treatment Solutions for Trains and Locomotives
Water Treatment Solutions for Trains and Locomotives

Rail is by far one of the most efficient means of transportation. It is estimated that one train can move a ton of freight almost 500 miles on a single gallon of fuel.  Today, Rail Companies are aggressively embracing environmental initiatives by investing in new technologies that further reduce their carbon footprint, energy use, and water consumption.

We can help rail companies keep the trains clean and in good working order AND help them reach their environmental goals.  Engineered and manufactured for the locomotive industry, our Rail & Locomotive (RL Series) Systems are heavy-duty, multi-stage wash water reclaim systems which can be combined with our single or multi-stage wash and rinse arches for a complete wash system that uses a fraction of the water of other wash systems on the market.

In the first stage our RL Systems, the water is processed through a stainless steel clarifier oil water separator which removes most suspended solids (TSS), essentially all settleable solids and all free and dispersed non-emulsified oils from the waste stream.

After the clarifier separator, the water is further processed for re-use by going through an extremely efficient filtration process utilizing fully automated solids filtration and a proprietary blended activated carbon (GAC) polishing filtration. Processed water passing through the system will be free of particles greater than 10 microns in size, substantially all emulsified oils, waxes and other volatile organic compounds.

Water Treatment Solutions for Fork Lift Cleaning

Industrial forklifts are used in a variety of places including construction sites, shipyards, mines and drilling sites.  They are invaluable in that they can unload pallets of materials, steel girders and pipes and other products from the delivery trucks and carry them to parts of the work sites that are not accessible to other vehicles.  Larger, heavy-duty forklifts can also transport large containers from delivery trucks to dockside storage areas, and then to the ships. Due to the working conditions and locations, forklifts will often get extremely dirty. After washing, the wash water generated will be full of grease and oil.

Fork Lift Water Treatment System
Our Fork Lift (FL Series) Water Treatment Systems are heavy-duty, multi-stage reclaim and discharge systems.

Our Fork Lift (FL Series) Water Treatment Systems are heavy-duty, multi-stage reclaim and discharge systems.  Depending on the usage, a certain amount of solids will be generated by the washing process. To handle the solids, our engineers will develop a site-specific solids removal system which could include sumps, trenches, screens, debris baskets and skimmers.

After many of the solids are removed in the first stage, the water will then be processed through a stainless steel clarifier oil water separator which removes most suspended solids (TSS), essentially all settleable solids and all free and dispersed non-emulsified oils from the waste stream.

After the clarifier separator, the water can either be discharged or further processed for re-use.  If the water needs to be re-used, the water then goes through an extremely efficient filtration process utilizing fully automated solids filtration and a proprietary blended activated carbon (GAC) polishing filtration, and a corona discharge ozone generator to prevent odors.

4-Vessel Filter System
4-Vessel MINING & CONSTRUCTION (MC Series) TREATMENT SYSTEMS

As the demand for minerals and precious metals grows, mining companies are constantly working to keep up with demand and improve their mining methods while at the same time doing as much as they can to preserve the environment.  Most mining and heavy construction work is predominantly done by heavy equipment such as LHD loaders, backhoes, excavators and dump trucks. This equipment gets coated with solids, dirt and grime on a daily basis.

Daily washing is an important part of maintaining the equipment in good working order.  This washing, however, produces a lot of dirty water and solids. The most efficient way to reduce your water usage and hauling costs is to remove the solids and recycle the water.

Our Mining & Construction Equipment (MC Series) Systems are heavy-duty, multi-stage reclaim and discharge systems, engineered and manufactured for the mining and heavy construction industries.

Because of the enormous amount of solids generated by the washing process, the most critical first stage for these systems is the solids handling system. Depending on the wash pad design, our engineers will develop a site-specific system including sumps, trenches, screens and skimmers to remove as many solids as possible before the water goes to the subsequent filtration systems.

After many of the heavy solids are removed in the first stage, the water will then be processed through a stainless steel clarifier oil water separator which removes most suspended solids (TSS), essentially all settleable solids and all free and dispersed non-emulsified oils from the waste stream.

After the clarifier separator, the water can either be discharged or further processed for re-use.  If the water needs to be re-used, the water then goes through an extremely efficient filtration process utilizing fully automated solids filtration and a proprietary blended activated carbon (GAC) polishing filtration, and a corona discharge ozone generator to prevent odors.
