Case Study: Swinburne University
What Cleanawater did
Cleanawater provided a portable wash bay so that Swinburne Uni can move it to a different location in future if required. No excavation is required for the installation of the bay and they can be easily decommissioned for relocation. The wash bay was customised to have surrounding walls that create a splash barrier and protects the surrounding environment.
A high pressure wash system with a boom arm ensures that the excavation equipment can be thoroughly cleaned of mud and dirt.
Rainwater harvesting helps Swinburne Uni remain sustainable, by reducing the dependence of the washing system on municipal water. The harvesting system was sized to match the expected rain water, leading to an optimised system. Rainwater harvesting has the added benefit of keeping the operational costs of the wash bay down.
Effluent water from the wash bay is discharged into sewers and therefore must be controlled to meet the required specifications. A TS oil water separator was installed at the wash bay to remove any traces of oil and grease from the water before it leaves Swinburne Uni. The TS series of oil water separators uses coalescing plate technology to separate and then collect the oil, while allowing the water to pass through to municipal sewers.
- Ensures compliance to local water authority
- Use of rainwater ensures sustainability and low operating costs
- Portable wash bay can be moved to a different location
- Reduced environmental impact
