In an ever-increasing health & safety environment an under chassis wash system offers a viable, totally safe alternative to traditional methods of chassis cleaning for both public service vehicles (PSV's) and heavy goods vehicles (HGV's).
Designed and manufactured in the UK, our under chassis wash system is the most established, automatic programmable chassis cleaning system. It replaces the manual aspects of chassis cleaning, which often result in poor and inconsistent quality of cleaning, long vehicle downtime and high costs.
Many blue chip companies including British Airways, Stagecoach, First Group, London General Transport and South West Trains are satisfied customers.
Operation of the under chassis wash system is extremely simple. The operator merely locates the vehicle on the wash pad, selects the programme number required and pushes the start key. The whole programme is then carried out automatically with the cleaning trolley moving along the track whilst the unique spray nozzle oscillates and sweeps from side to side.
Up to 40 wash programmes can be stored in the controller's memory to satisfy different lengths of vehicle and varying wash times, these can be entered at the time of commissioning. Programme additions and modifications can be made at any time by a simple procedure that requires no specialist knowledge.
The under chassis wash system is proven to be up to 4 times more efficient than manual cleaning methods. Using the under chassis wash system, the user can guarantee consistent cleaning results and due to the cycle being automatic, usage of water, electricity, detergent and oil/gas fuel can be accurately forecast for budgetary purposes.
Once a under chassis wash system has been installed, vehicles are cleaned more frequently and service times are reduced, resulting in faults being detected earlier and possibly avoiding major and costly vehicle breakdowns.
Installation of the under chassis wash system is quick and simple with the trolley rails bolted direct to the floor, suspended over an existing inspection pit or fitted to a specially constructed ramp. Varying options are available to suit both customer and site requirements. e.g. hot water, detergent injection, pre-wash foam application, pressure reduction, frost protection, manual hand lance etc.
45ltrs/min (10gpm) @ 130 bar (2000 p.s.i) generated by high pressure CAT pump, driven by 11Kw 415v 50Hz motor. Fitted with pre set safety valve, adjustable pressure regulator and pulsation damper. Zinc plated or galvanised fabrication housed under fixed fibreglass lightweight cover.
90ltrs/min (20 gpm) @ 130 bar (2000 p.s.i) generated by 2 off high-pressure CAT pumps, driven by 2 off 11Kw 415v 50Hz motors. Fitted with sealed tamperproof safety valve, adjustable pressure regulator and pulsation damper. Zinc plated or galvanised fabrications housed under fibreglass lightweight cover.
The water by-laws compliance - boost set is constructed from a 227 Litre plastic tank incorporating the required air gap between stored water level and the town water supply, water inlet float valves and required overflows.
One off centrifugal boost pump is connected to the storage tank to supply the high-pressure triplex Cat pump located in the pump module with water at the correct flow and pressure for optimum performance and reliability.
Water level is controlled by means of a float valve. A low level float switch is fitted in the storage tank to stop all pumps from operating. The tank and associated pipe work is adequately protected against frost damage.
There are two options offered for the application of detergents - before high-pressure washing (foam application) and during high-pressure washing (detergent injection).
For use with pit mounted installations and where it is not practical to locate pump module and drive unit in the same area.
Purpose built self-contained 3-pass heat exchanger to provide 45 ltrs/min or 90 ltrs/min at 70°C oil or gas fired. Fitted with Nu-Way or Selectos burners housed in lightweight fibreglass cover. Note: all exhaust gas flue ductwork is to be supplied and installed by the customer.
If temperatures fall below the pre determined value set on the frost stat, a solenoid valve is operated allowing all water to be blown from the high pressure hoses by compressed air for an adjustable time. The activation of the frost protection system disables the use of the equipment until the frost stat has reset.
Trigger operated hand lance complete with high pressure hose for manual cleaning. High pressure water is diverted from the pump module for use with the hand lance.
