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

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. 

MM SERIES STANDARD FEATURES:

Multi-Media Sewer Discharge Water Treatment

  • Stainless Steel Construction
  • High-Efficiency Pumps
  • Solids Filtration

vfd-controlled-pumping-system.png

Issue:  A consulting engineering firm contacted us regarding a wash system for their client that ran numerous grocery distribution centers and warehouses on the West Coast.  The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) rule on Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food required their client to wash the interior of every truck entering their facility in order to keep foods safe from contamination during transportation.

They asked if we could help them design a hot water washing system that could handle multiple users at the same time since most of these distribution centers are very large and busy.  At any point in time, multiple trucks are being unloaded and loaded as fast as possible.

Solution: In response to their request, we worked with the consulting engineers and designed a very effective sanitary washing package that would ensure compliance with the new rule by combining a high-pressure VFD-controlled pumping system with a high efficiency heating system.

For this application requiring 10 stations producing 4 GPM each simultaneously, we provided two 20 gpm @ 1700 psi  pressure washing systems with VFDs and high efficiency heaters. 

The VFD system offered substantial operational flexibility since the system will only utilize the power (speed of motor and pump) to match the output demands. We designed each 20 gpm system to service up to 5 users at 4 gpm each. If there is only one user on the system, however, the pump will provide only 5 gpm, and the motor/pump will only turn at 1/5” speed to meet that demand.  The high efficiency heaters were integrated with the pumping systems to provide the correct temperature water to comply with the FSMA rule.

In addition to the pumping and heating systems, we also provided hoses, guns, reels and holders so their client had a complete sanitary washing package.  The client liked the system so much, they ordered three more systems for other facilities!

portable-wash-pad-car-dealership-1.jpeg

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.

collision-center-wash-bays-1.jpg

Business at collision repair centers and auto body shops is booming these days! Once the cars are repaired, most shops like to enhance their customer service by washing the cars before giving them
back to the customer.

Wash pad for auto body shop

Today, however, you can’t just wash the cars in the back lot and let the water flow off site due to environmental regulations. That’s why we developed a simple turn-key wash bay package including a stainless steel oil water separator and a portable wash pad that can be installed and up and running in a day!

Wash Pad Features:

• Designed to be surface-mounted – No excavation required
• Built to any size and configuration
• Fiberglass composite system -1/4” steel plate core completely encapsulated in fiberglass
• Superior chemical resistance
• Shipped in multiple panels and easily installed
• Projected useful life of 15-20 years
• Simply re-located and re-used

oil water separator for auto body shop

oil-water-separator-ter-300x140-1.jpeg

oil water separator

Problem: A metals dealer and recycling company had a small wash outside area with a 900 gallon in-ground concrete sump adjacent to it. The sump captured both the wash water and storm water coming off the pad. Contaminants included compressor oil, motor oil, transmission fluid and gasoline.

The company called and asked us for suggestions on how to treat the water before discharging to the sewer. The nearest building to the sump was several hundred feet away and they had very limited area inside it to install an oil water separator.

transportable equipment room

Solution: This was a perfect application for our transportable equipment rooms. To treat the water, we installed an oil water separator with an electric diaphragm pump in a 20′ long container, our TER-20. Since the client was located in a northern climate, we added insulation and a heating system to the TER-20 to guard against freezing issues.

We placed the TER-20 on a pad adjacent to the in-ground sump and it took less than a day to hook up all of the electrical and plumbing lines to make the system operational.

Using the TER-20 saved the client building costs and provided additional storage space. It also allows them the flexibility to move the entire oil water separator system to a different facility when needed.
