Immediate Response Box
The Immediate Response Box (I.R. Box) is a rugged plastic box that contains a Magnum Spill Buster system. The I.R. Box provides an extremely portable system to start removal of product in a 2″ or larger well with minimal equipment set-up. A large forged shackle is attached on one end of the box for security.
The I.R. Box can easily be carried in a small pick-up or van. The basic setup involves mounting the Auto Seeker onto the well head, connecting the product tank discharge tube and overflow sensor to the product tank, and connecting the Auto Seeker and Probe signal cables to the Control Panel mounted in the I.R. Box.
The system is powered by 115VAC from an extension cord or is hard-wired, or cables can be provided to operate the system from a 24 volt deep cycle battery setup (2 12 volt batteries connected in series).
Solar Panel Charging Option
For sites with no utility connection available, batteries with a photovoltaic recharging system (solar panels) can fully power the Magnum Spill Buster. The Solar Panel Charging system includes the panels, a heavy-duty frame and mounting hardware, deep-cycle batteries, waterproof control box with regulator, and custom cabling. Configuration of the charging system (size and number of panels) primarily depends on the location of the site and the amount of sunlight available. The duty cycle, or percentage of time the system will run, is also determined by the amount of product present at the site.
Water Depression Option
A secondary water pump can be used to create a huge hydraulic funnel that pulls product towards the well from greater distances than are attainable with product skimming alone.
Dual pump product recovery operation can be accomplished with the Magnum Spill Buster System plus a Water Depression Control Module and a Grundfos Redi-Flo 3 SQE-NE pump sized to your well (minimum well diameter required is 4 inches). The Magnum Water Depression system is designed specifically to take advantage of all the features of the Grundfos Redi-Flo 3 SQE-NE pump.
This module obtains its water level signals and control logic from the Magnum system control box and in turn controls water flow by using the soft start feature of the Grundfos pump to turn it on and off. Clean Earth Technology offers this line of Grundfos submersible pumps with NEC fittings to safely bring the high level AC voltage through the recovery zone to the pump.
A set of normally open contacts is provided for use with a safety override probe, which will shut down the water pump when closed.
