A car wash can be the largest single point of water consumption and discharge you will have at your business. Water reclaim (or water recycling) is a way to reduce upfront costs, reduce ongoing discharge costs, and/or meet requirements to reduce water consumption. A properly designed water reclaim system can be very efficient in its use of water without a great deal of maintenance and ongoing costs. The days of using "dirty" water to wash cars are gone. Today's reclaim equipment provides filtered and treated water that can be used in almost every application in the wash bay. The reclaim system can be designed to meet the needs of the wash and provide the right quality and quantity of water to best suit the needs of the site.
Broadway's "Hydro Filter 25" water reclaim system is designed for automatic car wash bays that handle up to 200 cars per day. Filter bags have been added to the system to improve water filtration, removing particles down to 25 microns in size. The pump is designed to provide 55 gallons per minute at 40 psi, allowing this reclaim system to be used on both rollover setups and drive thru tunnel setups. The removable, disposable bag filters provide an easy and cost effective means of water filtration. This unit is designed for an inbay installation or an equipment room setup. Simple maintenance makes this system easy to operate while producing the quality of water needed for highter volume car wash systems.
Broadway's "Hydro 70" water reclaim system is designed for automatic car washes that handle up to 100 cars per day. The cyclonic separation used to clean the water removes particles up to 70 microns in size and produces approximately 35 gallons per minute. The unit is wall mounted for minimal space and is pre-plumbed and pre-wired for easy installation. This low volune, low maintenance system is perfect for end users looking to reduce water consuption and lower upfront access fees enforced by local municipalities.
