Riveer Environmental’s Cyclonator Containerized Wash Rack System is designed to operate year-round, even when temperatures dip as low as -10 degrees F (-23 degrees C). The standalone, 8-by-8-by-20-foot steel container structure and its closed-loop wash rack system can be set up outdoors in less than a day, the company says, and it can be permanently placed or moved from site to site by flatbed trailer.

The all-weather enclosure is outfitted with a dual-zone, electric infrared heating system, flush-mounted florescent lighting, 20A 120V GFCI outlets, a circuit breaker panel with three-phase distribution, bright Urethane interior finish and security door to protect equipment. The system comes with an external 18-by-24-foot above-ground steel wash rack with skid steer-access side trough. Drive wheeled- or tracked-vehicles (up to 80,000 pounds) onto the racks and use the system’s 4,000-psi pressure washer and 80 gallons-per-minute water cannon to remove heavy mud and debris.

Wash water then is drawn from the rack trough or sump to a closed-loop Cyclonator II or Cyclonator III stainless-steel filtration system housed in the containerized structure. The easy-to-operate Cyclonator features an automatic sludge conveyor and self-dumping hopper so it can filter water for weeks before the operator needs to enter the container building to conduct normal system maintenance, according to the company.
