Bitimec installs its first Mobile Train Washing System specifically designed for the North American Market. It is called the Bitimec SEP900ASL (In honor of Amtrak Saint Louis), and is the only production machine of its kind with a double brush system to better wash the contours of railcars.

Mobile train washing machines were pioneered by Bitimec in the mid ‘80s and the SEP900 is now the best-selling machine on 4 continents. New for 2012 is the special Water Recovery System which was designed with a unique ‘tank within a tank’ feature that allows the machine to start each wash cycle with a full 1000 Liters of clean water and maximum autonomy.  An inflatable tank is installed inside the main water tank. As the clean water is used, a special basin catches the run-off and pumps the dirty water back into the inflatable tank. A large portion of the used water and detergent are thereby recovered for proper disposal.
