A series of infrared lasers track the mixer as it pulls through the Load & Go, communicating this information to the driver via red/yellow/green lights and a touch screen PLC. CONSISTENCY. C A L C U L A T E D Reduce Water. A manual washdown with a 1-inch hose can take about 10-minutes and produces over 300 gallons of water. By automating the process with the Load & Go, the wash time is reduced to under one minute, using less than 40 gallons of water. The Load & Go pump is rated at 45 gallons per minute and a standard wash takes 40 seconds. Upgrade Safety. When using the Load & Go ready mixed truck wash system, the driver is located safely inside the truck cab while over 70 nozzles direct water at 1200 psi to thoroughly clean the mixer after it is batched. This eliminates manual washdown procedures, that often result in injured employees and workers compensation cases. Load and Go R E A D Y M I X E D T R U C K WA S H S Y S T E M Save Time. Save Water.
