3 Reclaim Water Treatment System Challenges Solved
81 Days - 0 Clogged Nozzles...
…those were the results from innovateIT’s Reclaim Water Treatment System beta test at Hoffman Car Wash in Colonie, NY.
The location was fighting a losing battle with clogged high-pressure nozzles due to poor reclaim water quality. The staff was spending too much time monitoring the old system and unclogging nozzles.
After 81 days with innovateIT’s Reclaim Water Treatment System and 81 days of high-quality production, the test site had reclaimed its water, time, and profits.
So what’s the secret sauce behind the innovateIT’s high-quality and high-efficiency water production?
innovateIT’s Reclaim Water Treatment System is engineered to address three major challenges with reclaim water: odors, water usage, and clogged nozzles.
PROBLEM: Reclaim water often creates unpleasant odors because of stagnation, poor filtration, and ineffective chemical treatment.
SOLUTION: Adjustable Chemical Dosing
BENEFIT: innovateIT’s Reclaim Water Treatment System features operator adjustable chemical dosing, which compensates for changes in water quality, wash volume, and the amount of dirt being washed from the vehicles to consistently eliminate odors.
It also utilizes a micro bubbler to provide additional oxygen to the reclaim water and to avoid stagnant pockets of water from becoming anaerobic.
innovateIT has also developed a proprietary, non-hazardous chemical to dose the system, eliminate odors, and kill bacteria, replacing the need for ozone which is hazardous and has a short half-life. It also eliminates the maintenance that is required when using an ozone generator.
PROBLEM: Poor quality reclaim water can only be used in a few non-critical processes in the wash, forcing operators to use more fresh water per car.
SOLUTION: High-Efficiency Production
BENEFIT: innovateIT’s Reclaim Water Treatment system only treats the water you plan on re-using in the tunnel, generating high-quality reclaim water for expanded use in the tunnel.
Additionally, it reduces the need for large reclaim storage tanks while conserving chemical and electrical usage.
PROBLEM: When larger particles aren’t removed from reclaim water, it can easily clog high-pressure nozzles.
SOLUTION: High-Performance Filtration
BENEFIT: innovateIT’s Reclaim Water Treatment System’s high-performance multimedia filters remove over 99% of particles larger than 10 micron and 60% of 3-5 micron particles. The filters also remove neutrally buoyant particles that pass through traditional centrifugal separators.
The end-result of this filtration and removal of large particles is high-quality water that can pass through high-pressure nozzles without causing clogs.
Reclaim systems are a vital component of reducing water consumption and operating costs, but only when they are serving their purpose and reducing headaches instead of causing them. Remember – not all reclaim water is created equal.
