Trime filter system delivers success

Crushing and screening specialist Banner Contracts has invested in a Trime-manufactured X-60 water separation and filtration tank solution.

The treatment system pumps contaminated water through a collection tank and into a filtration tank which subsequently separates pollutants present, supplying clean water via a booster pump to a pressure washer or steam cleaner.

The X-60 incorporates three galvanized steel tanks giving a total 6000 litre capacity.

The company’s Andrew Banner said: “Our company is committed to operating in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way. This has seen us invest heavily in market-leading hybrid machinery and battery-powered vehicles.

“We have also installed a solar array, quick charging points and a ground source heating system at our premises.

“As a quarrying contracting, plant hire and machinery sales company, we have a requirement to clean heavy machinery at our premises which can come back from site heavily soiled. We already had appropriate silt traps and oil interceptor systems in place, but we wanted to reduce our water consumption by recycling the waste water from the wash.

“Our research led us to the X-60 system and it has provided the ideal solution with minimal top-up water now being required by our wash system.”

The installation was commissioned by Wayne Brennan, Trime UK’s Technical Director.

Banner Contracts, which operates in Yorkshire and the north-east of England, has also been impressed with the X-60’s ability to filter and clean waste water that has been through its pre-existing silt traps and interceptor to a sufficient standard to allow the water to be re-used by the company’s steam cleaner for washing down plant and heavy machinery.
