Collection Truck "Supertruck"
ENGraphted Engineering Solutions was approached to turn a concept Collection Truck to a reality. The objective was to enable a sufficiently maneuverable tanker truck to arrive to a car repair shop and collect used oil, coolant antifreeze, and oily water in an automated way. This included inline detection of oil and water and automatic separation to different compartments on the truck. All the while taking account of the fluids as they are being separated and monitoring the level of the different compartments on the truck to prevent overflow. At the end of the pumping transaction, the system automatically generates a report that is uploaded to dispatch and to corporate accounting for invoicing. This concept collection truck was never before attempted in the used‐oil industry. While this concept truck successfully showcased the technology it was deemed cost prohibitive to have a fleet of trucks with the same capabilities The truck remains on the road since it first became operational l in 2014 and portions of this technology employed to other collection trucks on the fleet.
The technology was also featured on an international magazine.
