Whale Tankers will be highlighting its wide and diverse range of vehicles which are specified to meet customers’ individual requirements, while featuring the latest technologies and innovations.
Taking centre stage on the Whale stand is a new KaiserWhale which has been built for national operators Hydro Cleansing and is destined to work on some of the toughest applications in the UK.
The KaiserWhale is a tried and tested tanker combining high performance jetting and vacuum operations with fully integral filtration systems, enabling continuous water recycling. The Hydro Cleansing vehicle is the first to feature two Kaiser 4000i vacuum pumps, which are mounted inside the sealing water compartment with access doors on the offside and nearside.
Loading is achieved via an 8” hydraulically powered overhead suction boom or rear inlet valve. Discharge takes place through a full profile rear door or valves and this process is assisted by tipping of the tank barrel or application of internal pressure to a maximum of 1 bar, or 14.7 psi.
Mark Warmington, Managing Director of Whale Tankers, said: “This is the largest recycler we’ve ever built and the first vehicle to feature twin Kaiser 4000i vacuum pumps. The pumps can work both individually or together and there is a third pump which is a rotary vane exhauster that will provide pressure at 1 bar as well as additional vacuum.
“Visitors to our stand at the CV Show will be able to see this impressive recycler for themselves and learn more from our team about finding the right solution to a wide range of needs and applications.”
Steve Hoad of Hydro Cleansing said: “At Hydro Cleansing we tackle some of the toughest jobs around and these include everything from the clearance of big deep shafts and sewers to pumping stations and culverts, to name but a few. Basically, we handle the kind of jobs that others are unable to find the solution for.
“We’ve worked with Whale for many years and have a strong relationship with the team. They have the right level of knowledge, expertise and understanding of our requirements and those of our customers. We know the support we need is at the other end of the phone which is why we keep coming back when we need new vehicles.”
Other features on the KaiserWhale include the dewatering decant pumps, each capable of moving 2000 lpm, and a hydraulically driven screw compressor with 140 cfm at 7 bar.
Lighting is provided via in excess of 160 LED lights of various styles all around the vehicle. Additionally four telescopic light masts have been installed with more than 90 metres of LED rope lights also fitted, with some controlled by phone apps.
Additional features include a Exeros cyclist protection system featuring six cameras, bespoke chromium plated front bumpers, underrun and exhaust extension.
