BACKGROUND

Remote Water Treatment Services were successfully awarded a design and construct project to action a suitable wash bay treatment facility that would see the wastewater treated for reuse purposes.

The RWTS system was no ‘off the shelf’ solution, that most other water treatment company’s retail to the market.

Over the past decade we have continually seen so many vehicle wash bay systems underperform in their duty to treat water to an acceptable reuse standard  leaving unsatisfactory and odorous water to wash and rinse whilst more importantly neglecting the impact on human contact.

THE RWTS SOLUTION

HEAVY VEHICLE WASH BAY

The RWTS treatment process included an oversized hydraulic advanced beach pit and sump design separating the initial heavier solids portion – water was then transferred to the designated raw water tanks where pumps continually recirculated and aerated the fluid to prevent stagnant water minimising ordure and keeping particles in suspense  – batched through a Dissolved Air Flotation Process (DAF) with the correct chemistry applied –  treated water was then pumped through a dual set of glass packed media filtration units and then onto treated water storage – treated water was continually recirculated and monitored for turbidity, ph, conductivity and free available chlorine levels. Once the fluid was corrected and in specification it was then released to the hose reels and automated system to begin its cycle.

Although these sound like relatively simple filtration methods, the systems flexibility in design saw an impressive automation and control platform setting it apart from all other systems on the market today.

The heavy vehicle wash bay was programmed and controlled through our sophisticated Allen Bradley software platform with high end analytical instruments used as reference all programmed and calibrated by the RWTS electrical division.

All design work through to factory acceptance testing was completed in house at our RWTS Brisbane facility and completed by our team of professionals.

RESULT

The result saw a bankable wastewater treatment solution offering clean water to the process upon every wash every time.
