Problem: A mining company in western Canada was using a traditional 150-200 GPM @ 200 psi water cannon system to wash large mining trucks and loaders.
Because of the size of the vehicles, which can measure over 40 feet long and 12 feet high, the average wash time was lasting one to two hours in normal weather conditions, and 10-12 hours in winter conditions. That is a water volume of between 9,000 and 140,000 gallons per vehicle!
The company called Wash Bay Solutions seeking a solution that would save them both labor and water while at the same time providing a quality wash.
Solution: For testing purposes, we rented them our revolutionary DM 1000 demucker, which provides 20 GPM @ 1000 PSI of cold, fresh or recycled wash water.
The testing only lasted a short time. Within days, they determined that it worked perfectly for them – cleaning their large trucks quickly and effectively, and using about 1/10 of the amount of water used in their traditional water cannons.
Results: The client remains very happy with the demucker efficiency and ease of use, and the fact that it saves them time and water in an environmentally effective way.
