Banner Contracts invests in the X-60 filtration system

Banner Contracts a leading crushing and screening specialist, has invested in our X-60 water separation and filtration tank solution.

The X-60 is a water treatment system that pumps contaminated water through a collection tank and into a filtration tank which subsequently separates all the pollutants, supplying clean water via a booster pump to a pressure washer or steam cleaner. The X-60 has three 2000-litre tanks, totalling a 6000-litre capacity. The tanks are made from galvanized steel and the frame from steel with a baked-on powder paint coating.

Commenting on this latest investment, Andrew Banner said, “Our company is committed to operating in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way. This has seen us invest heavily in market-leading hybrid machinery and battery-powered vehicles. We have also installed a solar array, quick charging points and a ground source heating system at our premises”. 

Banner Contract X-60“As a quarrying contracting, plant hire, and machinery sales company, we have a requirement to clean heavy machinery at our premises which can come back from site heavily soiled. We already had appropriate silt traps and oil interceptor systems in place, but we wanted to reduce our water consumption by recycling the waste water from the wash. Our research led us to the X-60 system and it has provided the ideal solution with minimal top-up water now being required by our wash system,” added Andrew.

Banner Contracts were also struck with the X-60’s ability to successfully filter and clean the waste water that has been through their pre-existing silt traps and interceptor to a sufficient standard to allow the water to be re-used by their steam cleaner for washing down plant and heavy machinery.

Andrew also remarked, “I was impressed that Wayne (Brennan – Trime UK Technical Director) came out to commission the X-60 unit himself. This is the first unit of this size that they have sold and he wanted to gain experience with the unit and make sure everything was right with it personally. He was very helpful and informative and gave us as much of his time as we required. That level of commitment to customer service from senior management goes a long way with me!”
