Mining vehicles work in extreme conditions and require regular cleaning to operate correctly and safely.

This can be time-consuming and a full manual clean can take between 8 and 15 hours. Interclean products reduce the time required to clean these vehicles, which decreases equipment downtime.

These include joystick controlled and fully robotic solutions. InterClean systems use relatively low pressure, under 300 psi, at high volumes to remove the soiling buildup. This is much safer than the ultra high pressure wands operating at 3,000 – 5,000 psi.

Washing system for bulldozers, haul pack trucks and heavy-duty mining vehicles

Using the WashMan concept to clean bulldozers, haul pack trucks and other heavy-duty equipment can easily reduce the cost of washing by more than 80%. The InterClean WashMan is fast – between 10 and 30 minutes and uses 100% recycled water.

The WashMan is available in a manual or dual version, providing the operator with the choice of standing behind the unit and guiding it manually or selecting the robotic option.

The WashMan can also be equipped with an under-chassis wash, which simultaneously washes the underbody of the vehicle. The pit for the WashMan is designed to facilitate the removal of sludge and the InterClean recycling system ensures that the water used is 100% recycled.

Automatic drive-through washes

Heavy vehicle washing systems

Fully automatic drive-through packages for haul truck washing offer a much faster and more effective solution where employees are not permitted in the wash area. This package offers very effective side lower detail and chassis wash capabilities and gets the job done in a fraction of the time (5-15 minutes) compared with manual washing.

Light to medium vehicle washing systems

InterClean has designed and installed several light to medium vehicle wash packages all over the world. This type of wash is designed for larger street legal vehicles such as dumpers, semi-tractors and other heavy vehicles, which can often leave the mine for public roads. These systems often are designed for moderate to heavy mud applications where the sides and chassis must be cleaned thoroughly.

Our wash systems rely on high volume low pressure to effectively and efficiently remove heavy mud and dirt without the danger of causing damage to the running gear.

Patented nozzle system for detailed cleaning

The InterClean Centri-Spinner high pressure system (300 psi / 20.5 bar) offers fantastic cleaning results while using recycled water for a more detailed cleaning of the vehicle after the heavy mud has been removed. This patented nozzle system has been installed on countless wash systems around the world with unmatched performance.

Haul truck wash systems are a very important component for a mine operation and need to be designed for trouble free operation and low maintenance. InterClean has standardized our wash packages offering incredible performance while maintaining an almost maintenance free equipment package. The WashMan filtration system requires no consumables and provides high-quality recycled water on demand, offering a very small footprint.
