Kirton Water Treatment Services Ltd has been manufacturing vehicle wash water recycling systems for over 50 years, and thousands of systems are installed worldwide. The SupaJet system is designed to recycle the water from commercial washes of either roll-over or drive through type. In addition to providing excellent water quality results within its standard operation, the SupaJet range can also be specified with a RO spot free rinse to eliminate the white spotting and streaking that can appear especially on windows. The HC system is generally installed on bus and coach washing systems.
The SupaJet is suitable for all jet and pressure systems. The system consists of pre-filters, an internal GAC filter/ absorption bed, storage tank and booster pump. The system can be fully enclosed if required and all controls are rated to IP55.
In some parts of the county water companies are having to restrict water use by refusing to supply water for vehicle washing or to increase the size of supply. Water companies and environmental agencies are becoming particularly concerned with the quality of effluent discharge and are placing stricter controls and discharge consent limits. In certain circumstances either consent is not given, or effluent charges are high. Where there is no drainage available our Water Recycling System can permit the installation of vehicle washing installations as all the water is recycled.
Water used during the vehicle washing and rinsing cycles is gathered in a below ground collection tank (ST 6000 three stage interceptor). Any oil is removed by absorbent cellulose pads which are placed in the collection tank. All coarse or heavy material or contaminants are all collected in the tank. Water conditioners are often closed to the tank to bread down emulsions and improve settlement. A sump pump transfers wash water from the underground tank and through two pre- filters to an internal GAC filter/absorption bed. After percolating through the bed, the treated fresh water is returned to the pressure or jet wash. The bed is periodically aerated to redistribute and improve performance of the bed.
