Lance Harrington, maintenance manager at Chambersburg, Pa.-based Bri-Mar Manufacturing, was faced with a daunting challenge: continue to efficiently and effectively clean and pretreat the high volume of large hydraulic dump trailers produced at the company’s plant, while striving for a much more environmentally friendly parts washing process. The solution came in the form of the CPR System, a modular phosphate treatment system that provides the metal cleaning power of a 5-stage washer in one step.
While the ability of the CPR System to handle large parts was a big draw for Bri-Mar Manufacturing, the fact that the unit operates on a low chemical consumption platform was the clincher. With growing concern over proper disposal of used phosphate pretreatment solution from their metal surface paint preparation line, Bri-Mar Manufacturing was in need a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly method of disposing of the wastewater. In that respect, the CPR System delivered as advertised.
