Wash and Inspection Racks

The Riveer VWS is engineered specifically for retrograde logistics. It expedites thorough washing of all critical areas of MRAPS, personnel carriers, tanks, amphibious vehicles, light duty and staff cars and trucks. The heavy-duty steel wash rack and inspection ramp has a 160,000 lb capacity and  allows access for complete inspection fore and aft in undercarriage, axles, universal joints, wheel wells, etc.

As a veteran of CONUS and OCONUS service in theaters throughout the world, VWS is available in a rapid deployment configuration with quick connect water connections, plug and socket electrical connections and simple pin and socket fittings on rack pieces connected by swing bolts, all contained within 7 ISO containers with designated storage spaces for each part. Five guys and a supervisor can accomplish setup in just 2 hours requiring only a 5,000 lb forklift.

The washdown rack captures wash water for recycling and/or proper disposal, as stated in DoD regulations concerning environmental compliance in host countries, while its portability aids in staging near points of final departure. VWS requires only minimal site improvement and can be shipped anywhere in the world. Completely self-contained, VWS does not require a permanent or portable water source and comes with a diesel generator. The system is completely closed loop and meets DoD Directive 4715.56050.16 for foreign deployed wash racks.
