The Morclean team has recently completed an impressive, new lorry wash system in Nantwich, Cheshire. The lorry wash system comprises of water recycling, silt traps, interceptors, and water storage tanks, whilst contained within a purpose-built gantry with screens to allow access to the tops of vehicles when being washed, whilst containing over-spray.
The lorry wash system has been completed in 3 phases; civil works, steelworks and installing the systems.
To kickstart the exciting project, civil works are carried out to prepare for the installation of the underground tanks. The first port of call was marking out the site. This had to be meticulously done to ensure the dimensions were perfect before pecking out the existing concrete.
Once the concrete had been removed, it was time to excavate. For this particular lorry wash system, the client had a 6CuM3 Silt Trap and a 10CuM3 Interceptor tank installed.
In order to make room for the below ground interceptor and silt trap, approximately 100 tonnes of spoil had to be excavated first. Messy business and definitely a job for the diggers.
Once the tanks had been installed with ducting for cabling and pipework, it was time to backfill and form the new concrete base. The base was cleverly enveloped to the newly installed silt trap. This ensures wastewater runs into the below ground tank.
With the civil works completed, it was time for phase 2. Engineers fitted the steel gantry and walkway with a platform. This allows easy access to the tops of the lorries, to guarantee the users reach every single inch of the vehicles.
The steel gantry and walkway then had the sides put up to prevent and contain any overspray when the lorry wash system is in use.
The water and fuel tanks with housings were then delivered. To complete phase 2, the engineers used draw-wires to pull the cables and pipework through the ducts from phase one.
The final phase of the lorry wash system consisted of the installation of 2 hot water jet wash machines, the water recycling system and fitting the hose reels. Once fitted, it was time to connect the water and power and undergo the commissioning run and tests. This ensures the whole system was working seamlessly before handing over.
Both the Morclean team and the client were extremely happy with how the lorry wash system came together. All within budget and all on time within the quoted schedules.
