Fleetwash announces release of Deluge relocateable truck wash system
Fleetwash CEO, Valentine Whitton, has announced the release of the HDD45 R, an enhanced version of the highly successful Heavy Duty Deluge Relocatable truck wash system. The Mark 2 is built around the well tried all steel, heavy duty wash base design in use over many years. The HDD45 R has proven itself on multiple installations within the mining/construction industry, both in Australia overseas. Well known for its heavy hitting wash power, robust construction and versatility, given its ability to be readily relocated as required, has made this wash system the most popular of the Fleetwash truck wash systems.
The Mark 2 has all these features plus more – the high quality 45kw motor pump, delivering 2400 lpm at 7 bar is now mounted together with the motor control centre and valve control systems and all located on a steel skid mount base making installation a quick and uncomplicated task on any site.
The Mark 2 wash system is designed for all road registered vehicles up to 3 metres wide with side mirror width allowance and is suitable for light and heavy commercial vehicles, including semis and road trains as well as 4WD and service vehicles. The wash is fully automatic with traffic light control and requires no operator intervention during the wash process. Where decontamination washing is required, both on entry and on exit, dual directional washing is available, providing for clean on entry and clean on exit.
The unique feature of the HDD45 R Mark 2 is in the design of the steel wash base with 6 heavy duty “I“ beams suspended over the full length of the wash bay, with 12 tonne axle load rating, and supported at each end of the wash bay. This self-cleaning wash base provides for full and free flow of waste water into clients waste water system downstream with no hang up inside the wash bay pit.
The wash is delivered to the client in two main parts, ready to install with side spray retention screens and wash booms in place. The wash system is able to be placed directly into a prepared low profile concrete pit making the Mark 2 ready for wash operations in as little as one day following delivery to site. Engineer certified drawings are included for the concrete wash base.
The HDD45 R provides washing to the underbody, wheels and sides of the vehicle through 5 wash booms, with two booms on each side, upper and lower body and wheels and one double-sided centre boom providing inside washing of wheels and guards and underbody whilst avoiding the drive train & electronically sensitive area of the vehicles.
Galvanized and inverted steel angle forms the drive over section of the wash base, acting as a built-in shaker bar and creating tread deflection which assists in the removal of dirt and rubble caught within the tyre tread. This feature assists the Mark 2 wash in eliminating drag-out from sites onto the public road system. As well as ensuring EPA compliance it provides a clean underbody and wheels for more efficient site maintenance, making the HDD45 R Mark 2 the preferred truck wash system of choice for mines and quarries.
