Water treatment

WATER SOFTENING

The softening procedure involves special ion-exchange resins and technical salt. As a result, a neutral pH is created in the water used in the car wash, which contributes to the rapid and complete dissolution of chemicals. So chemicals reveal their best properties, wash more efficiently and, in general, the consumption of the reagent is reduced.

Additional de-ironing of water is recommended for those regions where water contains elevated levels of iron. Soft water gives less deposits/ precipitation on the hydraulic system (especially in the boiler, heat exchanger). Otherwise, iron is deposited in the hydraulic system stunning the exhaust ducts, which in just a couple of years leads to a complete shutdown of the car wash for cleaning or replacement of some of the nodes.

A SET OF EQUIPMENT FOR SOFTENING THE SERVICE WATER:
  • filter with filter media;
  • salt tank for 100 kg;
  • automatic control unit.

BUFFER SYSTEM

The buffer system is required for safe operation of the equipment and extension of its service life. In case of water shortage, the pumps wear out faster, and at peak demand, the pumps will not ensure the required capacity. The buffer system is used as the backup when a large volume of water is required simultaneously at all stations.

THE BUFFER SYSTEM CONSISTS OF:
  • hydraulic accumulator;
  • Wilo pump (Germany);
  • frequency-controlled pressure regulator (Italy);
  • tank with the capacity of 2,000 liters;
  • B&R control modules (Austria);
  • LP valves;
  • LP sensors;
  • mounting kit.

OSMOSIS

It’s a softened water, demineralized with special filters. Filters adsorb most impurities that are not visible to the naked eye. Osmosis is used in the program “Drying&Shine” for final rinsing of the car. Water without impurities and salts excludes the formation of white traces and splits of water on the body/glass of the car and does not immediately freeze in winter. If ice crystals appear in normal water at 0°C, the distillate will freeze only at a solid minus. In untreated water there are salts with other impurities, which create many centers of crystallization. Osmotic water has almost no crystallization.

В КОМПЛЕКТ ОСМОТИЧЕСКОЙ СИСТЕМЫ ВХОДИТ:
  • Wilo pump (Germany);
  • low-pressure solenoid valves 24V;
  • filter casings;
  • tank with the capacity of 1,000 liters;
  • B&R control modules;
  • osmosis performance counters;
  • filtering modules for water purification (Korea);
  • water pressure sensors;
  • water level sensor;
  • flow meters;
  • pressure gauges.

It is necessary to maintain proper water quality constantly, or breakdowns and expensive repairs are inevitable. We recommend taking water measurements regularly once a season to correct water treatment. The less precipitation remains in the hydraulic system of the car wash, the more reliable and longer the equipment works.
