Environmentally Safe Paint Brush Cleaner
Turns Paint Wash into Clean Water & Safe Solid Waste
ASNU Group of Trades cares about the environment and want to reduce the environmental impact caused by paintwash. For this reason, we use Dulux’s Envirowash which is a environmentally safe paint brush and roller cleaning system.
Paint should never be poured down the drain. Therefore, we use the Dulux Envirosolutions system. When washing out painting equipment such as tins, paint brushes and rollers.
ES160 System – Dulux Envriowash
The ES160 litre system is used by ASNU’s painting teams. It provides a environmentally safe paint brush cleaner and roller cleaning system. That is fast and easy to use. Plus it is easily transported in our painting vans.
The Dulux Envirosolutions products provide an environmentally responsible and safe way to wash out painting tools. This revolutionary system converts waterborne paint washings into clear water and solid waste. Thus allowing for easier and safer disposal.
How the Envirowash works
The envirowash is 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.
Firstly, the spray gun is used to wash rollers, brushes and paint trays.
Once the unit is full, chemicals are used to separate the water and solid matter from the paint washings. This takes about 1- 6 hours. After treatment clear water remains at the top of the tank while the paint sludge gathers at the bottom. Clear water can be recycled or released onto grass and gardens. The remaining paint sludge is filtered for removal and drying. Once residue is dry, it can be disposed as non-hazardous solid waste.
