Water-saving AquaJet 50 pre-rinse spray from Mechline

Mechline's new AquaJet 50 pre-rinse spray unit uses less than six litres per minute of water at four-bar pressure when the optional water-saving gun is fitted.

This provides a saving of 2.99 litres per minute against a conventional pre-rinse spray - helping the operator save water and energy.

Assuming that the pre-rinse is in use for 90 minutes per day, this equates to 2.99 x 90 minutes, which equals 269.1 litres saved per day, or 80,730 litres for a 300-day year.

Average cost for one litre of hot water is about 0.62p, and cold water costs approximately 0.22p per litre.

A litre of mixed (warm) water for pre-washing would cost about 0.48p. Therefore, the approximate saving with a Mechline AquaJet 50 would be 0.48 x 269.1 - equal to 129.17p at six-bar pressure, or £387.51 per year.
