How the Dulux EnviroWash System works
The units are easy to use and come with an easy to follow
The units are made up of two parts
- the sink and a separate filtration tank. The units work by
separating paint washings into clear water and solid paint. The
spray gun is used to wash rollers, brushes, paint trays, pots and
anything else that has been used in the painting process. Once the
unit is full, treatment chemicals are used to separate the solid
matter and water from the paint washings. After 1-6 hours*, clear
water remains in the top of the tank and paint sludge is left at
the bottom. Clear water can be recycled into other trade related
applications, or released onto flat grassy areas and gardens.
Remaining paint sludge is filtered, ready for removal and drying.
Once residue is dry, it is ready to be disposed of as non-hazardous
* Please note: Treatment
times vary depending on the capacity size of the unit and
concentration of paint washings. Typically, 450 litres of paint
water discharge produces 5kg of solid paint residue.
