Ekolit System



Capacities 30/400 litres per minute

Recycling plant - open design automatically backflushing fine filter (mesh sizes available from 20 to 50 micron), 2 stage degerming technology, outlet pressure max. 5 bar. 

The new EKO-LIT series, which we launched in 2002, is the most economical and efficient recycling system we have ever developed.   It brought several significant advantages which we would like to briefly point out : 

1. advantage : two stage particle removal 
With the EKOLIT system we remove suspended solids by a two stage process.
a) By hydro-cyclone to remove larger particles.
b) By fine filter, which are equipped with an automatic back-flush system (20 or 50 micron).  The back flush is activated after every car wash cycle is completed.  Moreover, the filter mesh is made of stainless steel and does not need periodic changing.

2. advantage : two stage de-germing process 

  1. By high voltage electrode (30,000 Volts / 300 mAmps.)
  2. By our well established water stabilizer

3. advantage : removal of algae
Freylit has been engaged for many years in researching new wash water recycling technology.  Recently we discovered that, when wash chemicals are mixed together with dirt and exposed to sunlight algae will grow.  These algae will stick to pipes, tanks, car wash and other surfaces and act as a culture for bacteria.  These bacteria will cause bad odour.  To combat this problem Freylit developed the high voltage electrode which does not only kill bacteria, but is also very effective in preventing the growth of algae.  Moreover, the High Voltage Electrode will cause a flocculation of fine particles.

4. advantage : dissolved air floatation in the reactor tank
Dissolved air is produced by an floatation membrane located inside the reactor tank.  By air flotation the flakes are brought up to the surface of the water inside the reactor tank and then skimmed off the surface to the overflow back to the silt chamber.

5. advantage : easy installation, minimum civil works needed
The EKO-LIT series ideal for retrofitting sites where the car wash already exists, because for example the EKOLIT100 or EKOLIT 200 only needs two PVC-spring hoses to connect the unit to the underground pit.  The EKOLIT100 or EKOLIT 200 can work with only one silt chamber with an approximate volume of 1000 gallons.  This makes construction cost significantly cheaper than other systems.  Moreover, the body and piping of the EKOLIT series is made of a Polypropylene.  The units are therefore relatively light in weight, making transport, handling and installation easier.
