East Kilbride-based waste management and industrial service specialists – Enviro-Clean – has once again shown its faith in Whale Tankers’ heavyweight sewer cleaning Jet-Vac with continuous dirty water recycler, the KaiserWhale.
Representing the second KaiserWhale to join Enviro-Clean’s 30 strong tanker and jet-vac fleet, this latest newcomer has been procured to coincide with the opening of Enviro-Clean’s first satellite depot located in the Sherburn region of Leeds. Forming part of a planned growth and expansion programme that Enviro-Clean is in the process of implementing across England, the KaiserWhale is set to take centre stage as one of the Whale Tanker’s exhibits at this year’s CV Show.
Commenting on the decision to specify the latest Enviro-Clean KaiserWhale, Managing Director, Jim McLuskey said: “One of the cornerstones of our success over the last 22 years has been our commitment to invest in the best systems and capital equipment available in order for us to deliver an exemplary service to our customers. Deploying our second KaiserWhale bears testimony to this fact and sends a clear message relating to our commitment for continued expansion throughout the whole of England by offering customers access to affordable solutions for all fresh water, waste water and waste management projects, regardless of scope and location.
“We enjoy an excellent relationship with Whale, particularly in relation to the reliability of their products and the efficient support they provide us with in the field. Not surprisingly, our tankers and jet-vac fleet features a large number of Whale tankers,” he added.
Specified on Volvo’s powerful Tridem FH rear steer, 8 x 4 sleeper cab chassis, the 32-tonne KaiserWhale will operate out of Enviro-Clean’s Leeds depot, working on private and public sector contracts across the country.
The key features on the KaiserWhale include: ultra high pressure jetting at 1700 Bar/2,900 psi. The Kaiser KDU 148 High Pressure Water pump assembly delivers recycled water at a flow rate of up to 400 l/min (maximum) and up to 200 bar, via a single stage filtration system.
The vacuum system centres on the Kaiser KWP3100i liquid ring pump with an operating performance of 3000m3/hr (1800cfm) at 85% maximum vacuum.
The pressure vessel of the KaiserWhale has been developed to deliver optimum performance in terms of unladen weight, longevity and payload. It features a four-compartment structure: one for debris/sludge, a sealing water compartment that supplies the liquid ring pump, an overspill tank and a compartment for clean water jetting.
Fully radio remote-controlled, the KaiserWhale also features a nearside, rear master control panel that features all integral equipment functions, controls and gauges.
Located at the rear of the vehicle is a fully hydraulically-operated spiral lifting boom that features an 18.3m long 6” (150mm) diameter suction hose, providing an overall working depth of up to 8 metres below ground.
Also featured is a primary ‘Mega’ hose that effectively handles 180m of 1 ¼” thermoplastic jetting hose, and a dual function digital jetting hose meter with programmable digital display, not to mention a secondary hose reel suitable for jetting fresh and recycled water via a 100m feed, ½” high pressure jetting hose.
