Progressive Car Freighters is a vehicle freight and transport service based in Bairnsdale Victoria. They operate a fleet of vehicle transporters which all need to be maintained and presented professionally to reflect their business. The hours put in cleaning this fleet quickly consumed any spare time and became costly with wages.
Spitwater model SW21200DE, 21 lpm at 3000spsi diesel powered hot wash pressure washer, 50 metres of high-pressure hose in a top mount hose reel. This was setup in a dedicated wash bay which made the system easy to setup and use. Town water supply at 21 LPM can be a problem. This was solved by providing a buffer tank of 1000 litres. The bypass return was piped back to the buffer tank, so no water is wasted.To reach the high sides of the transporters, Progressive chose our 2000mm lances to reach those hard to get areas. The end of the lance was further enhanced with a multireg nozzle which also gave the ability to apply soap through the venturi system.
Time for an Upgrade
Progressive Car Freighters are not new to Spitwater equipment. They had a SW21200PE that they updated to the Diesel engine powered replacement. This unified fuel supply as per their transporters and a new unit for more hard work to come. The old unit was serviced and a new lance and gun fitted and redeployed at one of their other sites.
A 50% reduction in cleaning times were achieved cutting costs on labour and freeing up time to perform the other tasks around the yard. Working with Spitwater, giving a fast turn around service with no downtime.
