Recycling unit for urban environment on show at Tank-Ex30 May 2014

Whale Tankers is showcasing its latest continuous dirty water recycler, the Urban Recycler, at this week's Tank-Ex event (29-30 May, Harrogate).

Part of the KaiserWhale range, the Urban Recycler has been designed as a lightweight and cost-effective solution for operators working in an urban environment and specifically to prevent 'blow-backs'.

Blow-backs can occur when working with smaller sewer lines, with diameters of between 100mm and 225mm. The Urban Recycler, says Whale, uses less aggressive, 'soft' technology to reduce this problem, while still enabling continuous recycling of dirty water, so minimising the time required to collect clean water.

The unit also features the Rotomax self-cleaning, single-filter system, with continuously flushing low pressure spray bar and additional high pressure spray bar, while no cyclone or settling tanks are required.

The vehicle on show at Tank-ex has been specified by BM Tankering. It is fitted to a Volvo FE 26 tonne gvw Euro 5 chassis and includes the Mistral 9 Series vacuum and pressure system, a continuous rated vacuum pump.

With a payload in excess of 9,000 kg, the vehicle also includes a KDU 148 jetting pump, which delivers 270 litres per minute with a pressure of up to 200 bar, primary and secondary jetting hose reels and a 150mm diameter suction loading boom with full hydraulic operation.

Other bespoke features include stainless steel storage cabinets to house a range of equipment such as CCTV, PPE, plus barriers and cones as well as an electrically heated hand washing unit, 7-inch flat screen reversing camera and monitor, LED work lights and an advanced control and diagnostics system.

Mark Edwards, BM Tankering's managing director, describes the Urban Recycler as "a truly unique recycling unit, developed for the operational needs of the contractor".
