Since the start of the design and manufacturing process in Surtruck, many Spanish towns have had road cleaning equipment and fire-fighting vehicles.
The Autonomous City of Ceuta was the first to receive a vehicle from Surtruck’s facilities, five years ago now, through the company Trace, in charge of urban cleaning and waste management in Ceuta.
The five-year old hydrostatic tank has a capacity of 9,500 litres and is made of special 5 mm thick aluminium. Adapted to the vehicle frame, it has a 15 m³/h and 15 Kg/cm² multistage pump, with a vertical arrangement and a front bar for watering and washing streets. Its elements also include a hose reel, a pressure outlet on the right-hand side, a double swivel aluminium pole and side troughs.
Five years later, it is noteworthy that the vertical pump has not been replaced, something that is common in this type of equipment. Nor have any major repairs been made to the equipment, which indicates the high level of technology, robustness and durability of Surtruck’s products.
Throughout this period, the soundproofed hydrostatic tank has become one of Surtruck’s most popular vehicles throughout Spain, operating in many municipalities: Almuñécar, Leganés, Villanueva de la Serena, Parla, Santa Marta de Tormes, Roquetas de Mar, Amposta, El Ejido, Arroyomolinos, Fuenlabrada, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Andújar, Jaén, Sagunto, Parla, Gandía and Torrepacheco.
Surtruck’s hydrocleaning equipment has also been used in many of these locations to carry out disinfection work in the fight against the coronavirus. Irrigation and flushing tasks are carried out with the use of chemical dispensers that mix the water and the product to be used in the percentage recommended by the manufacturer. Surtruck has installed hypochlorite (bleach) dispensers, which inject this product into the tank, depending on the water that enters it.
