Many areas of the country are under governmental regulations to treat their car wash waste water before discharging it to drain or septic systems. In addition, several areas are under water usage restrictions and often have high water utility costs. Water reclamation is usually a common option for Car Wash operators looking to save on both water and sewer costs, plus comply with environmental regulations.
In most systems, oxidizers are injected to break down organic compounds, flocculants are used to form large particles for simple filtration, and acids/alkalines can be used for pH adjustment. Stenner's peristaltic adjustable pumps are perfectly suited to inject these solutions as they are self-priming up to 25 feet and do not lose prime due to gaseous chemicals. The SVP series offers digital control utilizing a four button keypad and variable speed operation. An optional 4-20mA signal input follower is available for pH control systems.
Stenner Pump Company also offers a tank system consisting of a metering pump and solution tank that is shipped pre-assembled for easy installation.
