Cleartreat Bentonite Clay 50 Gallon Treatment System

Cleartreat is a type of bentonite clay that acts as a binding agent for wash and process water. When added to the water and agitated, it automatically binds to heavy metals, paint, oils, greases, etc. and creates what’s known as a “flock”. This flock is lighter than water, so it will eventually rise to the top of the container once agitation ceases, leaving clear water that can then be either reused or disposed of legally down a sanitary sewer drain.

The SATS-50 system is a 50 gallon treatment system that is so easy to use, you simply add the pre-measured clay into the process water container, push the start button and walk away. Once the reaction has taken place, open the ball valves to release the water into the filter bags, thus separating the flock from the water. That water can then be reused or disposed of down a sanitary sewer drain.

CA sues Honda over small engine emissions

Honda has agreed to pay $6.9 million dollars after it failed to meet certain emissions regulations on small engines.

California standard emissions were recently re-assessed and determined that Honda was not meeting the minimum requirements to fall into compliance. Specifically, Honda small engines such as lawn mowers, pressure washers and generators are the main culprits. According to the CA regulations, small engines can release as much CO2 as driving 300 miles if they are run for just one hour.

Honda’s small engines did not pass tests that measured how much fuel would evaporate from the powered-off engines in a 24 hour period. In more simple terms, more fuel evaporated from some of Honda’s small engines than is permitted in California.

WOS-15 Above Ground Oil/Water/Solids Separator

The mechanical oil/water separator system is designed to remove free oils from wash water before discharging to sanitary sewer. Applications for this system are vast and include cars, equipment, ATV’s and recreational vehicles.

The oils/water/solids separator will reduce the amount of suspended solids while removing hydrocarbons to meet local sanitary sewer discharge requirements.

The Mi-T-M’s WOS Series consists of above-ground oil/water/solids separators designed to discharge equipment and vehicle wash water into sanitary sewer.

The WOS Series offers the following features:

Ozone, Stainless-steel tank, Capability of holding oil and solids, Takes up an extremely small footprint, Easy to maintain, CSA approved control panel which meets the requirements of the US and Canada standards for an Industrial Control Panel, 1.0HP surface-mount sump pump, CSA listed NEMA-4 rated corrosion-proof control panel for safe and reliable operation, sloped bottom design for easier solids removal.

More applications the WOS is great for:

Rental yards, Heavy equipment washing, Trucking facilities, Truck rental fleets, Diesel repair facilities, Forklift washing operations, Aircraft maintenance and restoration, Shipyards, Municipalities/State DOT’s, Oil fields, Engine rebuilders and manufactures, Military bases.

Models Available are the WOS-15-0M10 120V, 1 phase, 15.0A and the WOS-15-0M30 208-230V, 3 phase, 5.0A

Additionally, the importance of a proper pit system to accompany the WOS is crucial. Once equipment is washed, the untreated wash water flows into a pit system. This is the first step in proper wash water treatment and a critical element in any wash water recycling system.
