NO-DES Trucks

NO-DES 200 and 270 psi Duel 12 Bag Filter Vessel Standard Freightliner Truck Model Product Information
  • The truck is currently a new Freightliner Chassis, standard Cab model with a 20-ft. metal flat bed.   The maximum gross weight (GVR) of the truck unit is rated at 33,000 lbs. (CDL required).  Configured as our NO-DES 200 PSI Truck model, it will weigh approximately 26,000 lbs. (dry) and 28,000 lbs. (wet).   air brakes – CDL required.

  • The truck cab will be white, or per buyer’s request. 

  • The main water circulation pump is powered by a Hale gearbox that is driven directly off the truck’s engine and transmission.  The main water circulation pump is comprised of a Grundfos pump unit that can operate at up to approximately 2,000 gpm (based on the size of your hydrant port, the size of the target main, the distance between hydrants/blow-offs and filter loadings).  This equates to being able to flush approximately a maximum of 14" diameter water mains at 3 ft/sec velocities, and 12" mains at 5 ft/sec velocities.

  • The filter system has a standard 6” by-pass valve & manifold system that allows the operator to by-pass either filter vessel when it becomes loaded; this can be accomplished during a flushing run without shutting down allowing filter bag change-outs, which reduces mid-flush shut-downs. 

  • The control panel is installed on the curb side of the bed for safety.

  • This NO-DES Truck unit has two 200 or 270 psi 12 Bag stainless steel filter housings manufactured by Fil-Trek.
     

The first filter housing utilizes 12 disposable filter bags that filter out particulates down to 1 micron absolute.  Approximate service life is of the filter bags is estimated to be one flush to three weeks, depending on customer usage, condition of customer’s distribution system and field conditions.  The stainless-steel filter housings have a flow capability to filter approximately 2200+ gpm each, and a maximum pressure of 200 or 270 psig.  Filter bag change out is at 15 to 20 psig differential head pressures.


The second filter housing is normally used as a back-up filter; utilizing an additional 12 disposable filter bags, capable of filtering out particulates down to 1.0 micron absolute.  Approximate service life is of the filter bags is estimated to be one flush to three weeks, depending on customer usage, condition of customer’s distribution system and field conditions.  The stainless-steel filter housings have a flow capability to filter approximately 2200+ gpm each, and a maximum pressure of 200 or 270 psig.  Filter bag change out is at 15 to 20 psig differential head pressures.

  • The NO-DES Truck Unit comes with 1,300 feet of 5-inch collapsible approved water transfer hose and fittings, with most of the hose in 100 feet lengths; and 200 feet of 2-1/2-inch hose for flushing smaller mains, water meter testing and other tasks that do not require the larger hose.  All hoses are rated for 300 psig operation and have safety caps installed at all ends. 

  • The 5” hoses are rolled up on three large hydraulic reels designed to save time during the roll-out and roll-up process.

  • Two sets of hose ramps are supplied for traffic use.

  • The hose reels are attached to and powered by a small forklift that piggy backs onto the back of the trailer.  The forklift is a Burro model from the Hol-Mac Corp out of Mississippi, which can lift 3,000 lbs. (max).  The Burro model weighs approx 1,500 lbs.  The Burro is powered by a 13 HP Honda gasoline engine and utilizes hydraulics which also powers the reels.  The top speed for the Burro is 3 mph and is a walk-behind model.  The Burro is equipped with an orange emergency strobe plus forward and back facing lighting for night operations.

  • A power inverter is installed on the truck to power the turbidity meters, the flow meter and the disinfection systems.

  • There are two automatic air relief valves, one on each filter vessel.

  • There is one (1) - 2” Cla-Val Model 50-01 Pressure Relief Valve installed.  

  • There is a 6" SS one-way check valve installed.

  • Four (4) 6” aluminum ells are included (90 degrees).

  • There is one (1) 6” aluminum Air relief hose adapter included.

  • Two 4-1/2” hydrant thread by 5” Storz adapters are included.

  • Two hydrant wrenches and two Storz wrenches are included.

  • Two sets of 2-1/2” to 5” Storz hydrant adapters systems included.

  • Two 2-1/2” to 5” Storz “Y” hydrant adapters systems are included to connect the 5” hose to hydrants with only two 2-1/2” ports.

  • There are two test taps located in front of the control center – one prior to filter inlets, and one after last filter for outlet.

  • The truck will come with a “headache rack” for mounting emergency lighting.

  • There is a standard emergency light bar located at the back of the truck bed.

  • There are standard LED running lights all around truck.

  • The truck bed will have a ladder and railings for operator safety.
