23 January 2013
At the Wienerberger brick works in Kidderminster fine dusts range from fine clay particles to brick dust and chippings. Keeping kiln and clay processing areas clean is a problem. Areas used to be cleaned manually usin
Areas used to be cleaned manually using yard brooms and operatives with face masks. Now, the site uses a diesel powered Nilfisk SR1601 rideon sweeper with a Dust Guard System that constantly sprays a fine mist of water over the brushes to suppress airborne dust. A 10m2 washable panel filter ensures dustfree sweeping throughout. A filter shaker facility prevents the build up of dust and any potential clogging.
The main broom is free floating with the ride on machine providing a sweeping path of up to 1600mm.
