The BMS Recyclone is a unique “all in one” pre-fabricated package car/truck/vehicle wash water recycling system designed to recycle 100% of recovered wash water for continuous re-use. A Recyclone will reduce water use by up to 90% and can completely eliminate pollution, thus providing substantial financial and environmental benefits with same day commissioning.

How Does It Work?

The BMS Recyclone is an ‘all in one’ package vehicle wash water recycling system incorporating a dirty water/sludge tank, an aeration tank, a clean water tank and the Bionic water recycling system.  It is designed to recycle the wastewater from all vehicle washes e.g. car, van, truck, bus, train etc. for continuous re-use.

The BMS Recyclone differs from other vehicle wash water recycling systems in a number of ways:

  1. Most other systems require extensive civil works and underground tanks to be installed. The Recyclone is a completely pre-fabricated ‘plug&play’ system.
  2. The Recyclone can be set up in a closed loop with zero dirty water discharge. Most importantly this means no pollution but also can negate the need for a discharge license. 

The Recyclone is a complete system that fully recycles all captured wash water to produce up to 90% water savings and therefore substantial savings on water bills.

BMS Package Philosophy

In keeping with BMS philosophy, the Recyclone offers a unique ‘all in one’ package solution that integrates all requirements into a pre-fabricated steel framed Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) solution, which is delivered to site ‘ready to go’ meaning same day commissioning is possible.

Unlike practically every other available washwater recycling system, the Recyclone does not require separate and costly in-situ control house and holding tank construction.

The Recyclone can be installed above or below ground in a minimum of space.  Most Recyclone units fit in a standard 20 foot container for ease of shipping and export worldwide, with large units fitting in a 40 foot container.

Importantly, there is no discharge from the Recyclone, this means that a discharge license is not required.  Furthermore, it means that all recovered washwater is 100% recycled, thus minimising potable water requirements and maximising water charge savings.  If the area where the Recyclone is situated is suitable, a rainwater harvesting system can be integrated.  This will eliminate potable water demand to virtually zero.
