Preparing your wheel wash for Winter


How we adapt your wheel wash for extreme conditions


At Wheelwash, we understand the importance of ensuring that your wheel wash system operates optimally, regardless of the extreme environmental conditions it may face.


Whether you’re dealing with freezing temperatures of the arctic circle or scorching heat of a desert, we’re here to guide you on how we update our designs to tackle these climatic challenges effectively.

Addressing Cold Weather Climates


In regions with colder climates, it’s crucial to prevent freezing and maintain uninterrupted wheel wash functionality.


Here are some of the example measures that we take:



1. Immersion Heaters in the Tank:

In some cases, we incorporate immersion heaters into the tank to maintain a consistent temperature, preventing water from freezing. This ensures your wheelwash continues to operate seamlessly in freezing conditions.


2. Trace Heating around Feed Pipes:

Installing trace heating along the feed pipes ensures that water flows freely, even in sub-zero temperatures. This prevents ice formation and blockages, guaranteeing smooth operation.


3. Lagging and Insulation:

Our designs can include insulation and lagging to create a thermal barrier, retaining heat and preventing freezing. This enhancement significantly boosts system efficiency in cold climates.


4. Upgraded Pumps:

In extreme cold, we offer pump upgrades to handle increased demands, ensuring consistent and reliable performance even in harsh winter weather.


5. Additional Drain-Off Points:

To prevent system rupture due to freezing, multiple drain-off points are strategically placed throughout the system. This allows for efficient removal of water, avoiding potential damage.


Addressing Hot Weather Climates


For regions with extremely hot climates, here’s how we adapt our designs:


1. Cooling Jackets or Special Pumps:

In hot environments, cooling jackets or specialised pumps can be integrated to dissipate excess heat, ensuring your wheelwash remains efficient.


2. Larger Cooling Fans in the Panel:

We may incorporate larger cooling fans within the control panel to manage temperature and prevent overheating.


3. Additional Ventilation:

Improved ventilation options are available to maintain optimal operating conditions in high-temperature settings.


4. Upgrades to Valve Seals:

Upgrading valve seals can enhance performance and longevity, particularly in extreme heat.



Our commitment at Wheelwash is to provide tailored solutions that suit your specific environmental challenges.


Whether you’re battling cold winters or scorching summers, our designs are engineered to keep your wheel wash system running at its best.
