Environmental protection authorities in developed countries are becoming increasingly vigilant in combating the illegal dumping of waste water into stormwater drains. More than ever, service providers need to equip themselves with appropriate clean and capture systems.
That was the message imparted by visiting Hydro Tek export director David Sholson when he addressed Australian Pump Industries’ (API) ‘Clean & Green’ seminar, held mid-February at the Crowne Plaza, Baulkham Hills (Sydney).
A strong attendance of BSC executives and high pressure washer contractors were educated on the EPA’s POEO Act 1997 and an ‘affordable’ solution that comprises a portable steam cleaner with integrated vacuum recovery system, which features a seven stage filtration process.
In essence, it cleans, captures waste water , filters and recycles the water, and uses it again. Sholson explained that his company, in the US, has been very successful in marketing ‘mobile recovery systems’ , some of which have 1500 litre water tanks and allow ongoing – shift long – recycling and re-using of that water. They deliver very significant productivity gains.
