THE MCBERNS AUTOWELLWASHER™ WILL KEEP YOUR PUMP STATIONS FAT FREE USING AS LITTLE AS 100 LITRES OF WATER PER DAY!
The McBerns AutoWellWasher™ come in two types:
- Wall mounted WellWasher, or
- Guide rail WellWasher
This product has been in the market place for 23 years and it is still the preferred method to assist in keeping pump stations fat free and improve the maintenance of expensive infrastructure. It is wholly designed and manufactured in Australia and has Australian, United States & International Patents. The Auto Well Washer design uses only clean water or recycled treated effluent at mains pressure to keep pump stations clean, making the wet well environment safer for work crews to carry out maintenance tasks.
The principle behind the design is simple: if the fat is washed away before it has a chance to solidify it is easily removed from the walls and pumps. By not allowing fat and grease to build up and solidify on the well walls no large fatty deposits are forced through the system, reducing blockages downstream and less stress at the treatment plant. The level sensors are always clean so the pumps work more efficiently resulting in less callouts. It has also been shown to significantly reduce sulphide corrosion on concrete walls, pumps and other internal infrastructure components. There are fewer confined space entries required, only when essential maintenance tasks are needed. Also the internal atmosphere is cleaner reducing the risk of H2S gas poisoning.
The total water usage for a single washer is as little as 100lts per day without compromising the cleaning effectiveness. During extreme drought conditions in S.E. Queensland in the early 2000’s one council tweaked the washers down to 1×1 minute wash per day and the washer still kept the pump stations clean.
