Demucking System

January 21, 2021

Problem: A facilities manager with a national maintenance company called looking for a corporate solution for their wash pads. They were expanding into several new markets and wanted to standardize their washing and water treatment systems.

Complications included the fact that most of their vehicles are sweeper trucks which generate a lot of solids. A typical wash yields 1/3 yard of solids. With each facility washing 10+ units per day, the amount of solids generated per month was substantial. Also, each facility has a slightly different layout. The good news was that most of them were connected to the municipal sewer.

Solution:  Since their solids handling issues needed to be addressed in addition to their washing and water treatment issues, we offered our engineering services to help them design a custom solution that they could standardize as much as possible for their wash bays and solids settling basins.

Once we completed the design, we recommended a number of washing and treatment options based on their desired washing processes.  Due to the fact that they had a variety of vehicles and equipment, they decided on both a demucking system and pressure washing system for washing. The demucking system was paired with a partial water reclaim system to recycle the water multiple times before the water was sent through our SPT-20 Clarifier Oil Water Separator System to process it for acceptable discharge to the sewer.

Finally, all of the equipment was installed in a TER-20 Transportable Equipment Room. This will save installation costs as well as allow the customer to move the equipment to a different location in the future. It also saves space inside of the customer’s building for other critical activities.

Fast and effective cleaning while saving time and water – a win-win situation!

February 20, 2009

Location: Eastern Tennessee

PROBLEM: A rural large distributor of construction and mining equipment was cleaning their equipment on an uncovered wash pad. The combination of the equipment washing and rain water accumulation often caused the pad to overflow into a nearby canal, creating environmental concerns. The company was seeking a solution that would eliminate the overflow problem, completely recycle all their wash water, and require minimal new site construction. They also needed a system that would be easy to move since their corporate officials were looking at new facilities.

The customer needed two types of cleaning systems – high volume washdown for heavy solids removal and hot water pressure cleaning for grease and oil removal. The facility also needed a completely self-contained water recycling system since there was no sewer connection and rainwater detection and water level controls to eliminate the wash pad overflows.

SOLUTION: The site was an excellent candidate for the WWMI TWP System – a transportable equipment room containing all washing and recycling equipment needed to completely collect, store, treat, and redeliver the water for all cleaning requirements.

The 40-foot modular equipment room contained a 20 GPM, 300 psi Demucking System, a 4 GPM, 3000 psi electric hot water pressure washer, closed loop recycling system with 1500 gallons of processed water storage, and a Rain Detection System (RDS). The entire Transportable Wash Bay (TWB) System was shipped intact and pre-tested, enabling the client to rapidly put it into operation. The integrated RDS System provided for the capture of all contaminants in the water during a rain event, and allowed only clean storm water to divert to the adjacent canal.

DATE INSTALLED: February 2009

RESULTS: The client has utilized the system without any environmental or operation problems for over 1500 hours/year. They use the Demucking System 80-85% of the time to clean their equipment, minimizing the need for high pressure. The adjacent canal is now clear and pollution-free.
