Sapphire Utility Solutions, working in collaboration with JHL, is delighted to introduce the Urban Recycler, a compact, ‘first time resolution’ recycler. The Urban Recycler, or CityRECycler® 206, has gully cleaning capabilities and will deliver a step change to the utilities, rail, highways and commercial sectors, with a positive impact on the environment, due to a reduction in clean water usage and the amount of waste to landfill.
The need for a new approach
The changes in weather patterns and a move towards heavier, more sustained periods of storms, has challenged the UK Highways network to find develop a new approach to affordable gully cleaning. The usual approach to cleaning these has been the deployment of traditional jetvac units, with limited flexibility and up to 20% of the working day lost due to the need to draw water from the clean water network or by having to take waste to landfill.
The next step in delivering ‘right first time’, environmentally friendly solutions
We have worked closely with JHL to develop a solution that will change the way in which these works are completed. The CityRECycler 206® has been developed to have full gully cleansing capability, enabling us to bring the benefits of a large recycler unit and integrate it with the urban capability of the CityFlex® (a small versatile unit, capable of getting into even the most restricted of spaces). This will see the next step in how we deliver ‘right first time’, environmentally, friendly solutions to our customers.
Equipped with a 6m3 tank, a legal payload of 5.2 tonnes and a jetting capacity 207 l/min at 160 bars, the CityRECycler® 206 can complete complex tasks despite its small size. The unit comes with the newest fuel-saving technology that automatically reduces the revolutions of the engine and pumps to the minimum level required for the job.
The compact unit with the rear mounted, remotely controlled, boom has been fitted with boom jets and has the ability for full recycling. This will reduce the clean water usage by 32% and the waste to landfill by 18%, giving our teams 12% more time available on site.
