Trainwash and Carwash Recycling

Train wash and car wash recycling

Using innovative technologies, this system allows you to re-use your entire commercial wastewater (from carwash or train wash). This in turn enables you to capture savings, whilst actively helping to preserve the environment.

Wash water is treated utilising 3 key stages. Heavy solids are firstly settled using an intensive sludge interceptor. Secondly, the water is passed through a cyclonic filter, and finally through activated granular carbon vessels to remove any organic compounds or chemicals.

This system has led to significant reductions in mains water bills, whilst freeing up limited fresh mains water for other site requirements. This system fits well for a socially conscious car/bus wash or train wash firm looking to enhance their cost savings while maintaining a green operation.

Furthermore, local authorities are becoming more strict concerning water usage by vehicle wash centres, both manual and automatic. Many countries have already implemented environmental policies (related to the treatment and recycling of wash water) with others soon to follow. Pre-compliance with environment regulations can result in significant benefits in the long term.
