Bitimec installs its first mobile train washing system specifically designed for the North American Market. It is called the Bitimec SEP900ASL (In honor of Amtrak Saint Louis), and is a double-brush system to better wash the contours of railcars.
New for 2012 is the special water recovery system, which was designed with a ‘tank-within-a-tank’ feature that allows the machine to start each wash cycle with a full 1,000 Liters of clean water and maximum autonomy. An inflatable tank is installed inside the main water tank. As the clean water is used, a special basin catches the run-off and pumps the dirty water back into the inflatable tank. A large portion of the used water and detergent are thereby recovered for proper disposal.
