Home Infrastructure Water & Waste These dust-busters save truckloads of water

THE growing number of droughts and water shortages has prompted Richards Bay-based ETT, a manufacturer of mobile equipment used in mining and industries around the world, to expand the capabilities of its water trucks from combatting issues of dust fall-out to tackling water wastage.

The company said in a statement that its CDR (Constant Deposition Rate) Spray System is designed to emit water in a controlled manner to achieve consistent coverage and accurate spray pattern, regardless of travel speed.

“This innovative technology’s functionality is well beyond traditional watering systems on the market for most water trucks. It’s time to start saving our most precious commodity – H2O.”

Apart from the water saving aspects, the company said its water trucks boast the lowest centre of gravity in the industry. Designed to extend below the wheel arches, the tanks provide additional fluid capacity and conform to dynamic payload ratings to ensure safer machine handling in motion.

Compatible with all major OEM truck models, ETT Water Trucks have a universal fit across OEM ADT chassis to make installation more convenient. Water tank capacities range from 6 000 US gal. to 13 200 US gal. and all tanks have specialized internal and external coatings to provide maximum corrosion protection from acidic mining water.

When it comes to rigid trucks, all major OEMs’ chassis structures are catered for with a range of water trucks capacities from 9 500 US gal. to 60 800 US gal.

Established in Richards Bay in 1995, ETT has grown into a global manufacturing, sales and service company which operates and manufactures out of North America, South America, Europe, Indonesia and Southern Africa.

Its “Big Four” products are Water Tanks, Lube and Service Trucks, Fuel Trucks and Off-Road Lowbed Trailers, which it supports with a team of technicians a range of OEM parts and spares.
