Water Use in Mechanical Workshops

Almost all the activities carried out in a workshop have the potential to release harmful pollutants into our water systems. Painting, washing vehicles, floor cleaning, and surface preparation activities such as wet and dry sanding generate pollutants such as:

  • Heavy metals from sanding
  • Coolant from engines
  • Antifreeze
  • Oil and grease
  • Chemicals from solvents and detergents and
  • Detergents from washing.

It is illegal to discharge water contaminated with chemicals into the sewer system. The water from storm drains flows untreated into our rivers, lakes and oceans. Protect the environment and prevent your business from being shut down or paying heavy storm water violation fines by getting in touch with EnviroConcepts today. Enviro Concepts provides workshops with cost effective wastewater management treatment solutions that are EPA compliant.

Reducing Operating Costs with EnviroConcepts

One of the largest expenses in mechanical workshops is usually related to cleaning engines. Combustion engines usually contain gases, sludge and carbon build up, all of which require different cleaning methods:

  • Solvents for cleaning grease
  • Acids for removing rust
  • Soap for cleaning soil
  • Soda blasting for stripping.

The after products from these cleaning methods require disposal according to approved standards. EnviroConcepts is one of Australia’s leading water treatment specialists. We have a range of systems designed to meet the waste water treatment needs of workshops. Our systems can help you recycle 100% of the wash water captured.
