A large city local authority identified significant infection risks at one of its waste depots, where its fleet of dust carts were cleaned using a commercial vehicle wash on a daily basis. This vehicle wash recycles the water, and was infected with water-borne bacteria. The aerosol droplets sprayed over the dust carts were a serious infection risk to employees and the public.
Tarn-Pure cleaned the underground sump, reclaim and ready-to-use tanks. A Tarn-Pure™ silver/copper ionisation system was installed on the ready-to-use tank, ensuring the water is free from Legionella and other water-borne bacteria. Independent monthly tests by an approved independent laboratory show the elimination of all bacteria and, thus, greater public safety.
