A wheel washing system is a device for cleaning the tires of trucks when they are leaving a site, to control and eliminate the pollution of public roads. The installation can be made in or above the ground for either temporary or permanent applications. A key aspect of the philosophy of wheel and tire cleaning is the use of high volume water flow at low pressure. The high volume flow of water flow serves to clean the tires and effectively remove the wash sludge slurry from the wash platform into the recycling and solids collection tanks. Mist and over spray from high pressure systems would not be an effective method of cleaning and removing the wash sludge into the recycling and solids collections tanks. Other disadvantages of high pressure cleaning are wasted water, energy and obstruction of driver visibility.
