This thesis describes the development
of a device called "Oil Separator"
which is used for washing vehicles and
particularly car washing. The device
developed for Mr. Car Bilvård AB in
Uppsala, the company's work involves
passenger transport and courier
services. The company needs an
external device that meets the
environmental standards to wash their
own cars in the premises without the
need to modify or reconstruct on the
premises ground as the premises is on
a leased contract.
Work began with a preliminary study on
the literatures that describes both
the function and structure of
designing the device. A few interviews
with other car wash companies had been
implemented, and some measurements.
After collection of the necessary
information the specifications of
customer requirement was presented .
With these requirements a few
concepts was generated and weighed
using the Pugh matrix for concepts
selection for further development.
The final concept was further
developed and a design has been
presented. A design of the washing
place was taken up also which does not
require any change in the premises by
putting it on the ground. A functional
smaller prototype of the oil separator
was developed and tested.
