The Morclean Wheel Wash System is designed to automatically clean the lower part of HGV vehicles by removing mud & clay etc. from the wheels and chassis in one drive through operation. This system is ideal for opencast or quarry sites for the removal of coal, sand, gravel etc prior to the vehicle entering onto a public road.

The unit is activated by infra red sensors and the vehicle proceeds through the wash and exits via the ramps. Washing is carried out using recycled water.

System and features

A Morclean wheel wash is a drive-through wheelwash cleaning system designed to remove mud, dust and contamination from the wheels of vehicles. The wheel wash can be inset into the ground or surface mounted, using a bath or spray bar. The angled entry and exit ramps at the wash also manipulate the tyres, working off the debris. The jet wash pump is activated automatically as the vehicle arrives at the entry ramps.

What are the site requirements?

Units are typically sited on a hard level area normally close to the site exit road. Water can be supplied to the main storage tank by bowser and generally no civils or mains services are needed. Optional washing spraybars or a jet wash can also be incorporated to jet wash and remove mud, dust and contamination from vehicles. All wheel wash units can be powered by diesel or electricity (single or 3 phase).

Where can wheel wash units used?

Wheel wash machines are designed to operate in a wide range of sites and locations including washing dust from quarries, washing wheels at waste transfer stations, mining and opencasting, harbours, distribution and manufacturing centres, landfill, washing mud and soil at construction sites and building sites etc. Under chassis wash systems also offers provide under-vehicle washing needs.
