The TW10 is a durable and robust automated wash unit, providing high-quality, cost-effective train washing for fleets of varying sizes and wash requirements.

Fast Throughput

The Britannia TW10 is fast and versatile, with the capacity to process up to 200 train carriages per hour at full capacity. It can wash single cars as well as multiples to any extent, and the order of presentation can be adapted to suit your requirements. Any type of rolling stock can be accommodated, from engines to passenger carriages, commuter trams, and freight units. 

The system is also easily adaptable to manage different gauges – e.g. for non-UK rolling stock and miniature/heritage railways.

Engineering Quality

The TW10 features a robust frame to ensure stability for reliable operation and durability through long service periods. Wash quality is kept consistent with innovative water pressure management and cycle programming tools. 

The brushes are made of polyethene 'X' material, which repels rather than retains soiling, meaning that dirt is quickly removed rather than redistributed across the cleaning surface. 

This optimises your water use per cleaning cycle and reduces your operating expenses and improves your sustainability profile.

Optional Features

Additional optional washing facilities such as front, rear and roof wash systems can be fitted as needed, plus skirt and valence wash, water recycling and effluent treatment options.

Easy To Install And Operate

The TW10 is easy to install and operate at any type of rail depot or maintenance facility. Its fully automatic washing cycle requires no user intervention once a cycle is started. The TW10's modular design also makes it a highly extensible system, with additional wash bays quick to add should your requirements change. Full support and aftersales care are provided by Britannia Wash Systems.
