Frank Key Tool Hire, the equipment rental division of the Frank Key Group, has taken delivery of their first X-Splash Wash Bay supplied by the Cambridgeshire company Trime UK.
The X-Splash is a standalone, ecological, flexible cleaning system for plant and machinery. This brand new product helps to prevent soil pollution and contamination of drains from oil, grease and other chemical contaminants commonly associated with the regular cleaning of off-hired equipment.
Commenting on this purchase, Craig Wheldale, Frank Key’s Group Hire Manager said, “This is the first X-Splash we have purchased. We did look at some similar models, but we found that the Trime set-up was an all-round good product and value for money. If this initial purchase proves to be successful there is a possibility we will be ordering some additional units.”
Craig added, “The service we have received throughout the process has been first class. The X-Splash Wash Bay is already proving its worth after only being in operation for a short time, we are very impressed.”
The X-Splash was delivered and installed at Frank Key Tool Hires Somercotes Branch.
The X-Splash features a modular section drainage base with a micro-switch in the Rear Solids Collection Tank set to activate the drainage pump when the water reaches a pre-set level. The surrounding area is kept safe from overspray via its large side panels. The anti-slip diamond tread ramp ensures operator safety when loading plant on and off the wash bay work area. The unit comes complete with separation tanks for oil, water and solids. Easy access to both the solids collection tank and filtration tank ensures all contaminates are disposed of properly.
Use of an X-Splash helps to guard against prosecution under the UK environmental Acts, including; Environmental Protection Act 1990 (section 33), the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010n (regulations 12 38 (1), (2) and 3) and the Water Industry Act 1991.
