Rental Equipment Companies Use Eco-Friendly Riveer Wash Racks and Treatment Systems to Comply With EPA
South Haven, MI – Companies that rent heavy equipment and vehicles need to wash them after return. Washing is essential to extending the life of their equipment and a key to cutting costs while preserving profits.
State and local environmental regulations require the safe disposal of wastewater. Water used in washing vehicles and heavy equipment often contains solvents, chemicals, oils, and metals that can pollute waterways and drinking supplies.
For instance, US-EPA has established the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), with the goal to abate the stormwater runoff pollution by vehicle washing pollution. To meet the permissible discharge limits and regulation by US-EPA, the environmental obligation of equipment wash operator is to remove heavy grease, oil, and sludge from the effluent. Sludge can be dewatered and then sent to a landfill or treated by a licensed disposal plant, if that is permitted.
The American Rental Association (ARA) is expecting more than 1.5 percent growth this year. That means more dirty equipment to wash before the next rental. Wash and rinse equipment need to go above and beyond to remove sludge and grime on the chassis and undercarriage while effectively containing dirty wash water. Whether it’s heavy or light – Riveer has the modular wash and rinse systems to make the cleanup job easier.
For nearly 40 years, Riveer Environmental has specialized in creating highly effective and affordable wash racks and water processing systems for the equipment rental industry.
Riveer’s wash rack simply bolts together for a quick install plus doesn’t require a building or site permit. Many rental companies take the basic operation a few steps further by adding a filtration/recycling system, solids disposal hopper, and water treatment to kill bacteria and remove foul odors.
Rental equipment cleanup can be a messy job. A thorough cleaning is essential for customer satisfaction. The next renter will want clean equipment that looks professional and capable. It is vital for equipment rental companies to have an effective wash rack and wastewater removal system in place.
This can save headaches with compliance while making it much easier to keep equipment clean and ready for rental. Riveer has the ability to automate the transfer of solids with conveyors that take the mud, rocks, and debris to hoppers for easier disposal. This is more for Municipal or mowers.
