SCL HAS POLLUTION SOLUTION AT ITS NEW TAMPA SHOP

It was in conjunction with the increased volume of cleaning, fueling, sanding and servicing from the increased locomotive assignment that attention turned to sophisticated pollution control. Such a locomotive facility is capable of producing "a very complicated waste," he adds. SCL locomotive exteriors are cleaned with an acid while the interiors are washed with an alkaline solution. There is sand, fuel oil, lubrication oil, treated cooling water, battery acid, shop cleaning solutions and other contaminants. The Uceta system is designed to process such a mixture at the rate of 100 gallons per minute. Even a normal rainfall can double this rate and must be accommodated in the system design.
