Vehicle wash firm develops water recycling system29 March 2021

A new water recycling system designed by commercial wash equipment manufacturer Smith Bros & Webb (SBW), trading as Britannia, reduces water usage in vehicle washes.

The system allows customers to cut the volume of water they use to clean their fleets, in turn helping to save operational costs and reduce their impact on the environment, all the while maintaining a gleaming fleet of buses, coaches or commercial vehicles.

The three-tank design is contained in a one-piece fabricated construction, the RC200 system allows the sediment generated from the wash process to be filtered and removes harmful waste products such as organics, shampoo and oils, before storing the water for re-use.

SBW has designed the RC200 to include the added ability to check, monitor and control specific risks associated with Legionnaires Disease. That allows the operator to run the wash plant with confidence that all water spray particles are within a specified requirements before distributing to the wash pad, SBW says. This process also incorporates all tanks associated with water processing, including the underground water storage facility.

Managing director Dave Barker said that not only does the system reduce carbon footprint, water reclamation and recycling systems like this one also reduce operating costs.
