Inflatable Wash Pads – Liquid Tight Floor
Our inflatable wash pads are a mobile fluid-tight floor and have been developed by Morclean in conjunction with a European manufacturer in response to market demand, resulting from environmental legislation and regulations.
When a business or company currently produces waste water in one way or another, it has to be contained and possibly purified or removed. Companies with this responsibility include garages, transport companies, valeting companies, car washing or mobile car wash outlets when washing vehicles, marinas and boatyards when hosing down and cleaning boats, dredging companies when collecting and purifying sludge etc. the fire brigade when collecting large quantities of contaminated drain water, and cattle breeders when collecting water during cleaning and disinfecting of vehicles.
Taking only seconds to inflate the water tight floor can be used as an inflatable wash pad, inflatable liquid tight floor, an inflatable water capture system or an inflatable car washing pad The inflatable wash pad can be supplied with a drain in the corners or as a complete water tight retainer.
A summary of the advantages of the floor: The wash pad is mobile, flexible and fast to set up. The standard inflatable wash pad weighs only 1Kg per square metre and can be easily transported. They are durable, chemical-resistant and can be manufactured on a bespoke basis in various materials. Many applications are possible especially as the wash pad can be custom made.
Inflatable Wash Pad Operation
Simply roll out the mat and inflate it with the blower supplied. Drive the vehicle on to the inflated mat and you have a fully portable wash pad. When the vehicle drives onto the floor the edges bend and then return upright.
We can design and manufacture to any size using various colours. Commercial vehicles and cars generally fit onto a 3m wide floor, heavy goods vehicles are better using 4.5M wide floor but the wash pad can be specified in any practical size and dimension. The floor will not be damaged by the weight of the vehicle it is designed for. This is a tested product, and has taken 18 months to develop. Manufacturing is taking place right now and we have a demonstrator at our premises for operators to test at anytime.
As well as the standard PVC coated polyester fabric (900g /sqm) but we can make them in other coated materials, anti static coatings, high resistance coatings for excessive chemicals and various foil coatings.
Quality control for water tightness and Safety notes
Although innovative and easy to operate the wash pad is more than just a simple construction. All wash pads have to be fully tested and we guarantee water tightness of the floor. All welded joints and connections are vacuum tested and inspected during a quality procedure. Every wash pad is given a unique registration number which is printed on the side of the floor to ensure identification of all the products used during construction.
Inflatable Wash Pad: Technical Information
PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) Standard Material
PVC is a relatively economically priced material, it is easier to work with, it has high resistance to UV and can be made flame retardant. Generally PVC can be used for traditional diluted detergents used in vehicle washing. Only in higher concentrations PVC is not specifically resistant to oils, petrol, chemicals, acids etc.
TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane)
TPU has a much higher abrasion resistance and has much better resistant to aggressive liquids, such as petrol, gasoline, mineral oils and chemicals in general. It can also be made with anti-static coatings though it is generally less resistant to UV and weathering.
TPU/ PVC blend
This materials is a combination of the characteristics of PVC and TPU to obtain the benefits of both materials.
Alcryn is a thermoplastic elastomer with the look, feel, and recovery of vulcanized rubber.This material is highly resistant to chemicals or acids. For many liquids it has an even higher resistance than TPU. Abrasion resistance is equivalent to PVC and it can be produced in a fire resistant material. Alcryn has a better UV resistance than TPU.
Water Technology Product Development
We can always advise on specific projects and offer a unique bespoke design and build service. Recent projects include inflatable de-contamination and disinfecting units. Inflatable wash pads can also be used in conjunction with our water reclaim units, pump out vacuums and high pressure water cleaners. Please contact us for advice on specific projects and innovative design challenges.
