GUARDRAIL WASHER EQUIPMENT

A GUARDRAIL WASHER ATTACHMENT MOUNTED ON AN INTERNATIONAL 2000 GALLON TANK TRUCK IS USED IN YAKIMA, WASHINGTON WITH SUCCESS. THE EQUIPMENT IS SUCCESSFUL IN REMOVING ACCUMULATIONS OF DIRT AND LOOSE PAINT SCALES FROM THE GUARDRAIL. AFTER WASHING, THE REQUIREMENT FOR WIRE BRUSHING AND SCRAPING PRIOR TO PAINTING IS VIRTUALLY ELIMINATED. STATISTICS SHOW THE GUARDRAIL WASHER TO BE FAR MORE ECONOMIC THAN MANUAL WASHING METHODS.
