Another award winning bin wash delivered to Kent

Image
This week another award winning Morclean trailer mounted bin wash was delivered to Kent. 

Used for the cleaning and sanitising of commercial waste containers, the Canterbury based operators had a need for another essential piece of equipment to add to their already established business


Delivery was made as quickly as possible with full handover and training. Morclean’s wheelie bin washing machines are designed to be easy to use and maintain. Simply place the wheelie bin on to the lift mechanism and press the button to lift

When the bin is  elevated, the operator can use the pressure washing system to clean out the bins, and lower the bins with the same single button once washing is completed.



A number of specialist marine jet wash units to Aberdeen

Image
This week Morclean have completed another order for the supply to the off-shore industry. A number of specialist marine  wash units were dispatched  to Aberdeen.

The special build and high pressure jetting machines are fitted with accessories that are used below sea for deep cleaning. Morclean have supplied a quantity of these machines in the past with a further supply being manufactured right now!



Morclean’s  Meridian series of jetters feature higher pressures and flow rates for heavy and industrial applications. The high pressure jet wash units can be manufactured on a steel skid frame with an electric motor to power the pump. Alternatively, the marine jetters can be produced on a trolley and wheels for extra portability with a diesel engine. The machines are built to withstand extreme conditions and are robustly built with extra heavy-duty pumps.


Even our shop workers are front line!

Morclean have this week donated  a small number of face visors to a local shop in the area. Even our shop workers are front line!

One of our team noted that while popping into the shop, some of the staff were struggling with broken masks. Morclean had a few visors left over and in their PPE stock from a previous donation to a hospital so one of our Directors actioned this contribution to protect against COVID-19


Consignment of Silt Traps off to Cumbria

Image
In these difficult times we're relying more than ever on 3rd party transport, and palleted loads. This particular delivery is no exception and is heading off to Cumbria  today to a merchant in Carlisle

The silt traps will then make their onward journey to several Highways Agency sites in the north of England. Typically these locations store the gritters and other servive vehicles which are also maintained and  washed on site




Silt traps are designed to provide a sump for collecting wash water and is typically placed in the centre of a wash bay so that the wash water falls to one collection point. Placed prior to the interceptor a silt trap collects larger debris and can be accessed via a hinged galvanised grating for easy manual emptying. As well as a collection point the silt trap collects debris and prevents excessive silt entering the interceptor. The water from the wash bay can be collected in a silt trap. The GRP structure contains the water and is fitted with an outlet for connec…

Morclean donate a number of face visors to local hospital

Image
Morclean have this week donated a number of face shield visors to the Whitworth Hospital near Matlock in Derbyshire

The BS approved masks were delivered yesterday and donated free of charge due to the hospital appealing for PPE to enable them to better treat patients during the outbreak of COVID-19. The appeal was spotted by one of Morclean's Directors - Peter Morley, who lives not far from the healthcare facility which is situated between Darley Dale and Matlock in Derbyshire. 




The facility  is managed by Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust, and one of the nurses working in Oker Ward appealed for masks via social media earlier in the week.  Morclean's Director Peter said "recognising the needs of nurses who require PPE is something many organisations and individuals have helped with since the outbreak of COVID-19..."
The appeal was met with a significant response with seveal contributions or suggestions of where to obtain PPE. Whitworth has a spec…
