Water recycling in arctic conditions
The EcoCycler is a water-recycling unit built for the sometimes very difficult conditions found in the Nordic countries, where the temperature can fall down to around -25 °C for long periods, but the pipelines still need to be maintained. This is where the EcoCycler comes into its own with its efficient frost protection. Having sturdy subframe is essential, given the road network is affected by recurrent frost damage and severe winter conditions.
Optimised weight distribution
The EcoCycler tanks are of the so-called tank-in-tank type. The slurry tank is inside the fresh water tank. This means there is optimum weight distribution regardless of which tank is filled. The construction is also very strong.
The Combi-unit has very efficient frost-protection and all water-carrying pipes or components are located in a heated and isolated area. This means that the unit can be effectively used down to -30 °C. The tank-in-tank design also contributes to thermal protection, the outer water tank being heated by the internal slurry tank and vice versa depending on loading conditions. We have also managed to implement frost-protection to simplify the work and, as a result, maintaining the technology is now a lot easier because everything is kept clean and tidy.
