The Problem: A County Transit operates three bus maintenance facilities. Each facility generates wash waste water in the process of cleaning buses. Engine degreasing, undercarriage wash, wheel cleaning and general maintenance washing generate a waste water contaminated with oils, grease and metals including Zinc and Lead. They needed a system that could remove the contaminants and purify the water to a level safe for discharge to the POTW.
The Answer: The ClearFlow CF-200 system was installed. Four units at three facilities. The systems are set up to automatically treat the waste water as it is being generated and pumped into the supplied 500 gallon storage tank. The facilities did not need any major structural addition to house the systems. They were installed in or near the wash areas. A service program was initiated with the County that provides the required maintenance the systems need without using County personnel. The systems have been providing a quality discharge and reliable operation.
Results: Consistent, repeatable results is provided by the CF-200. A rugged 304 stainless steel design will provide long lasting service. Ease of use, infinite variability processing allows the system to be most efficient in consumable use and time to treat. This fully automatic system provides the County with the best available technology for a difficult waste stream.
