Custom Wheel Wash Bay Installed at Calor Gas


We recently installed a Custom Wheel Wash Bay for Calor Gas in East Kirby, UK. This state-of-the-art system ensures efficient and thorough cleaning of vehicle wheels, promoting safety, compliance, and environmental responsibility. Let’s dive into the details of this impressive setup:

The Components

  1. 10m Rumble Bath with Removable Grids:
    • The 10-meter rumble bath features removable grids designed for easy cleaning. These grids remain above the water level, allowing access for jet washing tires.
    • Side rails enhance safety during the cleaning process.
    • The end stop ensures precise positioning of vehicles within the wheel wash area.
  2. 5m Rumble Ramps:
    • The 5-meter rumble ramps facilitate smooth entry and exit for vehicles.
    • These ramps ensure effective wheel cleaning as vehicles pass through the system by loosening compacted build-up in the tyre treads.
  3. Sump Tank and Main Tank with Water Recycling:
    • The sump tank collects water runoff and debris.
    • The main tank holds the clean water supply for the wheel wash system.
    • Weirs installed on the tanks ensure cleaner water delivery through the hand lances.
  4. Pumps and Solenoids:
    • Pumps move water from tank to tank, maintaining a continuous flow.
    • Solenoids control water flow and emergency stops for added safety.
  5. Hand Lances:
    • Two 12-meter high preasure hand lances allow manual cleaning of hard-to-reach areas.
  6. Automatic Filling with Ball Cock Valve:
    • The ball cock valve automates water filling, maintaining optimal water levels.
    • Efficient water management reduces wastage.
  7. Oil Separator:
    • The oil separator keeps oil contained within the main 10-meter bath.
    • Environmental responsibility is a priority.

Quality Craftsmanship

  • All tanks, ramps, and pipework are made from steel, ensuring durability and longevity.
  • Our commitment to quality extends to the fact that this system is designed & built by us in the UK.
