Morclean were recently approached by Arvin Meretor, a Midlands based clutch and brake manufacturer. Arvin Meretor had two particular products contained within vessels that had to be discharged, pumped out, or taken away. The only practical way to empty this liquid is by using a vacuum cleaner, but the liquid in both tanks amounted to a total of approximately 1000 litres.
What was really required was a 1000 litre vacuum except Morclean were quite confident there was no such machine in the market place. In order to recover water in this way with such a large vacuum capacity, the problems presented were two fold. Firstly a vacuum unit on a standard 240 or 415 volts supply, cannot convey the air across such a large capacity container ie 1000 litres. A 1000 litre capacity container has a dimension of 1 metre cube. On the other hand, if a large induction motor and vacuum system were used on a traditional container, this would in fact cause the container to implode.
After extensive research, Morclean have devised a system that runs on a standard 230 volts supply, and uses two 1000 Watt motors to create a vacuum across a 1000 litre container. The vacuum can be plugged into a conventual 230 volts socket while having a massive 1000 litre capacity. This system does have to be used with a fork lift truck or pallet truck, and the water contained within the container can then be taken to discharge, water reclaim or water recycling. While strictly speaking this is one of our range of specialist vacuum cleaners, the IBC vacuum is ideally used in conjunction with water reclaim and recycling, or in conjunction with a AquaBoom system.
