Vehicle, Plant and Machinery
You will find below a selection of equipment for wash water collection and processing operations to help your business meet its environmental obligations. All products are designed by FiltaBund and manufactured in the UK. Please feel free to call or email if you wish to discuss any of our products or require further information.
Total System Solution
The FiltaBund total system solution is a robust platform system for the collection and processing of wash water. The system is available in two formats. For car washing, the system can be connected directly to the sewer as oils and silt are retained in the trays with oil baffles. For heavier soiled applications, the baffles are removed and processing of water takes place in our MultiCepta unit with optional water recycling.
The platform can be installed and/or moved quickly due to its modular design and allows for simple and quick relocation. This ensures the wash pad remains a long term asset to the business.
Standard platform width with side steps is 3.45m and can be any length in units of 1.1m. The surface grids are removable for maintenance and extended side steps can be provided to give more width to the platform. This also allows high and low level spray barriers to be incorporated.
This platform is an ideal solution for car and van wash bays, as well as lorries, busses, fork lift trucks and trailers.
Total System Solution Extreme
If you have a need to wash very dirty equipment such as soil laden diggers, dumpers, tractors etc, the Total System Solution Extreme may be the option for you. It is designed with a solid surface to allow piles of dirt to be shovelled up and placed in a skip. The perimeter open drainage system is always visible and can be quickly shovelled out when muck builds up. The design allows for washing of dirt and soil laden equipment without the risk of clogging a traditional open grid wash pad.
As the system does not incorporate oil baffles, it must be connected to our MultiCepta to treat waste water prior to sewer discharge (with the relevant permit). The platform comes with various options for hand rails, low level barriers, or full height barriers.
It is a semi permanent solution in that connecting gaskets must be replaced if the system is moved and is an ideal option for construction equipment hire fleets.
The SupaBund system is a flexible mat for collection of wash water. The mat is manufactured from 900gsm PVC reinforced fabric with optional double thickness tyre tracks. A crush resistant enclosed foam or inflatable surround keeps water within the mat. The sides of the mat can be driven over or additional ramps can be supplied to extend life. The mats can be rolled up or folded for storage and transportation and are manufactured in the UK to our design in any size requirements. Corporate colours can also be accommodated.
We can also provide a drive on platform and flexible spray barriers so that the SupaBund can be used as a full indoor wash bay at a lower cost than our rigid solutions. This can be combined with a mini version of the MultiCepta to allow discharge to sewer (with the relevant permit).
The MultiCepta can be used as a simple above ground 3 stage interceptor for removal of silts and oils prior to discharge to the sewer. The system can also incorporate automated coagulant dosing and pH control to allow water recycling and reuse. The MultiCepta can be added to the wash platforms and wash mats for water processing.
The unit comes in various sizes. The MultiCepta Mini is a 2 stage interceptor with a voume of 2 cubic meters and is perfect for sites washing up to 5 cars a day. The 3 cubic meter 3 stage MultiCepta Standard is good for 5 to 20 cars a day and the 9 cubic meter 3 stage MultiCepta Extreme is for larger or dirtier plant and equipment, or sites washing 20 to 100 cars a day. The MultiCepta Extreme can also serve multiple bays and can be connected in series. Other bespoke sizes are available on request.
Wash Water Recycling
Wash water recycling uses our MultiCepta 3 stage interceptor with the addition of automated coagulant dosing and aeration mixing. Water is then pumped through a sand filter and on to storage tanks with UV sterilisation for reuse. Sand filters are available with or without auto backwash and can also incorporate activated carbon as an additional cleansing step when higher quality water is required.
Hydrogen peroxide odour control dosing is also available, as well as a bio reactor cell for additional detergent breakdown.
Indoor and Outdoor Enclosures
FiltaBund has a range of indoor and outdoor enclosures available that are designed to work with our platform systems. Tented solutions are also available as a low cost or temporary alternative. Every site is different, so enclosures are usually of a bespoke design. Check out our Example Installations section to see some of our past projects or contact us for more information.
Our AquaChamber is designed for internal parts washing and consists of a robust galvanised steel frame and 900gms PVC flexible enclosure. Water is extracted from the enclosure by either pumped wet vac or specialist puddle pump. High strength internal platforms can be supplied for placement of heavy items such as engine blocks. A curtain can be pulled across the front to minimise spray, which can be drawn back when items are forked in and out of the enclosure. The enclosure measures 2m x 2m x 2m, but bespoke sizes and colours are available.
The FiltaBund PortaCepta is a collapsable 4 stage interceptor for processing of wash water prior to discharge to sewer. The system can also be provided as a two stage system and is designed for temporary installations and can be packed away after use. Silts settle within the tanks and oils are retained on the surface, keeping harmful substances out of the drainage system.
The system comprises of a durable galvanised steel frame and 4 flexible 900gsm reinforced tarp tanks, which are interconnected with 110mm pipework. The processed water is of a quality that can be discharged to the sewer with the relevant permit.
