Effective Waterless Wheel Cleaning -
The Green Alternative to Wheel Washing, Bath and Spray systems
The DriveOn V-Tech Dry Wheel Wash unit is a highly effective and cost reducing system for removing mud and debris from the wheels and undersides of vehicles exiting construction, quarry, landfill and re-cycling sites. The patented V-Tech Bar system provides efficient wheel cleaning along with great environmental and economic benefits.
- No water waste, no watercourse contamination, no freezing in winter
- No diesel use, so no emissions
- No (or much less) road sweeper requirement, so again, less diesel emissions
- No concrete sump installation
- No queues of vehicles waiting for the “man with the lance”, engines idling, creating emissions
- No (or much less) road sweeper hire
- No down time
- No pump
- No generator
- No fuel
- No bowser
- No lance
- No man to operate the lance !!!
With 60% less surface area than other raised grid wheel cleaning devices, it doesn't clog up and exacerbate the problem. Installation can take less than an hour and the unit can be repositioned as the site extends.
- No build up of sedimentary slurry that you get with a wheel wash
- No pressure wash
- No breakdowns.
“There are three Skanska sites at Addenbrookes. The other two have wheel washes, and we chose a waterless DriveOn V-Tech system from Ecogreen Plant Hire. They are also both using road sweepers. We don’t need to.”
“The dry wheel cleaner has been a great asset to this site. We were paying for a road sweeper for 10 hours a day and now need a road sweeper for only two days a week for two hours plus travel, saving us in the region of £1,300.00 per week on our forecast.” For this project Skanska received the ‘Considerate Constructors Scheme’ award – the system scoring them a point – and the comment in the Innovative Activities section of the CCS scorecard was “An innovative wheel cleaning system, which does not use power or water and does not require an operator, is used to keep the public roads free of mud. This unit is very effective, and carbon free during use”.
“We replaced our wheel wash with a DriveOn V-Tech and have saved: 14k pa on energy costs Reduced carbon emissions by 27 metric tonnes pa Reduced our water consumption by 22 million litres pa We have 300 vehicle movements per day and only clean the unit out quarterly.”
“Further to our using your dry wheel wash on site in Ashford I would just like to congratulate yourselves on providing a very useful item of plant. The manner in which it is delivered and the ease involved in actually putting it into use is fantastic, and I would have no hesitation in contacting you in the future.”
“We hired a DriveOn V-Tech system during the groundwork stage of a new a new care home project just off Esher town centre. As we had to exit the site directly on to the main road, it was vital that we kept the road free from mud and debris. The DriveOn unit worked very effectively and we believe that we also made savings as we never had to hire a road sweeper and there were no water disposal costs.”
“We were surprised and delighted at the performance of the DriveOn V-Tech waterless wheel cleaner. It’s a simple idea but very effective in use and it’s allowed us to reduce our road sweeper hire costs significantly. As well as that, as our site developed we were able to reposition the unit easily and quickly – within 20 minutes.”
“We originally hired 3 DriveOn V-Tech’s and we are very pleased with the way that they have performed on a very challenging project. We have now installed a further 5 units”
