SOUTH HAVEN, MI, Feb. 14, 2014 -- A closed-loop vehicle washing system designed for semi-permanent installations is being installed in the United States Embassy to Iraq in Baghdad.

Launched by Riveer, a provider in engineered wash-water recovery systems, CamelRack filters and recycles wash-water for indefinite periods of time without intervention, separating dirt and oils, while freshening the water for reuse by injecting ozone.

The CamelRack marks Riveer's entry into what could be considered the environmental car wash market. Whereas handwashing a car uses an estimated 160 gallons of water, Camel Rack reduces water use by 95 percent.

Riveer-engineered wash-water recovery systems are typically specified for heavy construction vehicles, oil and gas operations, military retrograde, and municipal truck maintenance. Automatic soap injection and separate freshwater rinse features will allow the staff to keep their vehicles clean using minimal water.

Because of the exceptionally dusty environment, the CamelRack has a built-in mud conveyor to automatically drag mud and debris out of the rack and into a hopper for easy disposal in addition to the RTS 3000 filtration system. The water-recycling equipment is housed in a climate-controlled ISO enclosure with HVAC, insulated aluminum walls, automatic lights, and secondary containment to combat the arid atmosphere.

"There is an increasing demand for closed-loop car washes as issues regarding fresh water, groundwater pollution and the spread of noxious weeds gain more attention," said Matt Petter, president of Riveer. "The needs of the U.S. Embassy in Iraq are really no different than an equipment company in Arizona, in that the objective is to wash vehicles on site in a harsh environment while conserving water."
