Thread: Reclaim units, anybody know much about them?

  1. #1

    Default Reclaim units, anybody know much about them?

    I might have an oppurtunity to get into some commercial wok that requires reclaiming. Didnt know until recently the state requires it
    Anybody know of some good units or something I can make myself?

    Im looking at this one right now
    http://www.hydroteksystems.com/rec-hydroloop.htm
    But from what I understand, I cant filter and re-use the water, but if its filtered can I drain it into the sewer?

    Any input would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Chad,
    There's a lot of info out there on types of equipment, regulations, BMPs, and so on. First, when you refer to "sewer" I'm assuming you mean sanitary sewer and not storm sewer. Storm sewer discharge is almost universally NOT acceptable. As for you local sanitary sewer, you'll most likely need some type of permit from the sewer authority before you can discharge there. Picking up the water is easy and cheap (vacuum, sump pump, etc.). getting rid of the water legally is a bit tougher. I'd suggest doing a search at TGS in the environmental forum. Lots of reading over there, and links too.

    As for the hydroloop, I think it's a decent entry-level unit, but it will depend on the volume of work you're going to perform.

    Lou,
    The biggest thing to look for in a reclaim unit is the volume it can handle. If you're doing smaller jobs, and running one rig, the Hydrotek should work fine for you. If you're trying to reclaim wash and rinse water from several machines, and pieces of equipment at the same time, you'll need something that can handle the volume of water its taking in. If your vacuum and OWS can't handle it, you'll likely have water going where you don't want it, or you'll end up stopping washing, and waiting for your reclaim to catch up. Time=money. There's some decent equipment available, and it doesn't have to cost a fortune. Many have built high volume vacuums for a lot less than you could purchase one. I don't want to endorse any particular brand or type, but here's my box truck recovery setup:
    Sirroco PEV2 vacuum / portable
    Sirroco OWS 10-200 / truck mounted
    8000 watt generator / truck mounted
    275 gal tote for reclaimed H2O
    Mosmatic vacuum surface cleaner
    Plus all the other stuff like sump pumps, oil socks, sludge pump, drain covers, berms, oil dri, shovels, brooms, squeegees, etc, etc.

    This allows me to run many different configurations of recovery. My machines on that truck put out 5.5gpm, and the OWS will handle 10gpm.
    Most often we don't use the vacuum surfacer, we'll run Big Guy's for speed and rinse with a wand. We can run this setup for 8 hrs+ before having to clean filters on general cleaning (except the vac filter). Your biggest concern should be pre cleaning the area to reduce debris entering the system.

    How much is the hydrotek you linked to? I hate equipment sites, they rarely advertise prices.
