AwayWash for Concrete Mixers

PLASTIC CONCRETE MIXER WASHOUT SYSTEM

AwayWash is the first patented on-board polyethylene system for ready-mix concrete mixer trucks which allows for the operator to wash out the chute. This modern design allows you to wash the concrete mixer chute in compliance with environmental requirements while avoiding risks of contamination and penalties/fines. The product is light, sturdy and easy to maintain as concrete does not stick to it.

Environmental

Cement powder, workable concrete and grout are extremely alkaline. Concrete also contains chromium, which is potentially polluting not only to watercourses but also to groundwater. Trucks, hoppers, mixers and concrete pumps that have contained concrete must be washed out in a contained area away from watercourses, surface water drains, stormwater drains, grids and channels to prevent pollution. Where possible, store and reuse washout water.

Washing out ready-mixed concrete trucks on-site
The Environment Agency publishes Pollution Prevention Guidelines, including PPG6 ‘Working at construction and demolition sites’, a guideline that is intended to assist with those in the construction and demolition industry. This states that precautions must be taken to ensure the complete protection of watercourses and groundwater against pollution. Further, it states that ‘Suitable provision should be made for the washing out of concrete mixing plant or ready-mixed concrete lorries. Such washings must not be allowed to flow into any drain or watercourse.’ Ready-mixed concrete trucks should not be allowed to wash out anywhere other than the areas designated for the purpose.
