Using recycled water can save money and keep your jet/vac crews on the job longer. The Recycler CR150 from Bucher Municipal is a sewer-cleaning unit with a continuous recycling system designed to perform throughout the day without the need to stop and refill the tank with new water, saving water, time and fuel.

“The contractor stays on the job all day using recycled water,” says Jacob Amrine, regional sales manager for Bucher Municipal North America. “The truck is constantly recycling water while you’re working, which means your tank never runs dry.”

The truck is equipped with a five-step recycling system that cleanses the water and ensures a prolonged life of the tank, jetting pumps, nozzles and pipelines. It includes centrifugal cyclones, a Desmi S80 transfer pump, coarse and fine filters, plus internal jetting booms for cleaning of the filters. As the water in the 15.7-cubic-yard tank is used, a partition between the freshwater and spoils tank may be moved to provide additional space for sludge hauling, while keeping the water and sludge separated at all times. It comes equipped with a CVS VacuStar WR 3100 liquid ring vacuum pump that provides 124 gpm suction at 2,175 psi. Jetting is provided by a Uraca P3-45 pump offering 124 gpm at 2,175 psi.

The unit is built up by modules, allowing for fast assembly and easy service. The unit’s pumps are designed to withstand extreme conditions, plus there is no tube assembly or breakdown required. The unit’s smart cabinet solutions (including a handwash facility, two hose shelves and two tool shelves) and storage spaces provide the operator with an efficient working station. Two control panels enable the operator to manage all functions and set up the unit for the job at hand. The control panels are mounted inside the cabin and on the back of the tank. The panels are designed with buttons and the larger screens have a color display for a more intuitive operation. According to Amrine, the unit is built as a response to an idea that is “really starting to take off in the U.S.”

“We have 30 of these units in the field, and the stats show the productivity these crews are getting,” he says. “The upfront cost is a little higher, but the increase in productivity pays off in the long run.” 704-658-1333;
