Mobile solutions for the disposal of wastewater
How the MobileUnit works

Vogelsang offers mobile wastewater disposal solutions in various designs for flexible, location-independent use. Depending on the technical requirements and local conditions, different vehicle designs and tank capacities can be selected such as self-propelled vehicles, industrial trailers, pedestrian-controlled fixed-platform trucks and trolleys.

The mobile wastewater disposal systems are equipped with a powerful Vogelsang rotary lobe pump from the VX series. The self-priming, positive displacement pump can be used to both extract the contents out of the train's toilet retention tank and to empty the transport tank later on. This allows a simple and weight-saving design of the system. For customers this means a high transport capacity combined with a compact design.

Additional equipment options are also available. For example, an extra water reservoir with tank flushing facilities or a heated weather protection enclosure for the mobile plant.

Features of the MobileUnit

Our products with VX series rotary lobe pumps are constructed according to an ingenious design concept, called QuickService design. This concept makes maintenance and repair of the equipment particularly easy. Systems are available again in a very short time, with downtimes minimized

Options of the MobileUnit

Activated carbon filters are optionally available for the purpose of foul air odor control.
To ensure safe operation outdoors even at freezing temperatures and to protect the technical equipment from frost, optional electric heating elements can be used.
An optional tank rinsing facility is available for some MobileUnits. This consists of an additional water tank with a water pump and matching hose accessories. Supplementary rinsing of the wastewater reservoir tank on the train can improve the cleaning result.

The MobileUnit M20 is a transportable disposal unit on pedestrian-controlled trailer. This lightweight unit with a compact waste water transport tank allows the equipment to be manually maneuvered even in confined spaces. The pump unit is available with an electric drive or with a combustion engine.

Disposal pump and tank assembly on common skid

The MobileUnit M is a disposal system as tank skid for various carrier vehicles. The tank and pump unit is pre-assembled on a robust base frame, including control unit and accessories. The unit is typically provided for the installation on the customer's own transport device. The lifting pockets in the base frame allow the empty unit to be easily set down onto the desired transport platform using a forklift truck. Depending on the load-bearing capacity of the carrier vehicle, different tank sizes and equipment variants are available.

The MobileUnit M30 consists of a complete disposal tank skid  mounted on an industrial trailer. The tank and pump unit including the control system can thus be towed to the site of operation with a suitable vehicle. In addition to simple turntable trailers, variants with 2-axle turntable steering and interchangeable drawbar can also be offered. This allows maximum maneuverability even in narrow roads and service platforms. The disposal unit is available with different tank sizes and various equipment options.

Disposal unit based on self-propelled vehicle

The M50 version of the MobileUnit product series provides a self-propelled transport vehicle with complete disposal tank skid. The carrier vehicle is usually a battery-powered industrial platform truck. In addition to electric platform trucks with driver's cabs, pedestrian controlled platform trucks with tiller steering can also be offered.

The zero-emission drive of the vehicles allows them to be used not only outdoors but also inside factory buildings. The vehicle's battery supplies the disposal unit mounted on the transport platform with energy independently of the mains. The unit is available with various tank sizes and a range of equipment options. By using a self-propelled carrier vehicle, the MobileUnit M50 is particularly efficient and convenient to use.
