Washing and disinfection

Mekon RV-1 Cage ring washer

Mekon RV-1 Cage ring washer – Effective washing float for pressure washing all cage models from Ø 315 to Ø 500 without base ring, and has its own nozzles for disinfection after washing as standard.

The float runs under the collar feet and lies low in the water to avoid unnecessary lifting of the floatation collar. The washer connects to the service boat’s existing hydraulics and is operated by radio control. Customer feedback indicates that washing time will be approximately 30-40 minutes when cleaning a 120 m Ø 400 flotation collar under optimal conditions.
