Automatic Wheel Wash Recycling Dam Water in QLD

An automatic wheel wash is exclusively using dam water to eliminate trackout from trucks exiting a landfill site near Ipswich in Queensland.

Accuweigh’s environmentally friendly Automatic Wheel Wash is fitted with a solids separator to remove all sand, soil and other solids from the dam water before it is pumped to the wheel wash spray nozzles.

Supplied and commissioned by Accuweigh’s Brisbane branch, the AccuWash Truck Wheel Wash is fully automatic with operation initiated by trucks tripping the wheel wash entry sensors. The wheel wash complies with EPA requirements by removing mud, dirt and debris from truck wheels, tyres and truck under-bodies preventing trackout onto public roads.

A Hydrocyclone Solids Separator is plumbed into the water circulation system and uses no moving parts or filter screens as water is cleaned by the action of pressurised water swirling through the centrifugal separator. Clean water discharges at normal system pressure to the wheel wash sprays while separated solids are collected and discharged separately at the point of wheel wash sludge conveyor discharge.

Fresh clean water offers the best cleaning action for wheel wash systems, but as this is not an environmentally friendly option; continually cleaning the water to a very high standard is the preferred green option. Dirty water not only clogs the wheel wash spray heads causing a lowering of cleaning efficiency, but can also cause pitting to truck paintwork and damage to underbody components by particles suspended in the water under high pump pressures.

Accuweigh can provide a full turnkey wheel wash installation, including all civils, shaker grids, drainage grates, pedestrian handrails, sludge bins and gates. Electronic accessories include boom gates and traffic light systems to regulate vehicle entry for increased safety.

Accuweigh has eight branches across all mainland states providing sales and service support on all wheel wash systems.
