British brewer cleans up
13 November 2013
The Shepherd Neame brewery, founded in 1698 in Faversham Kent, has become one of the country's oldest buildings to be fitted with a bespoke centralised vacuum system from Nilfisk-Advance.
Spilt malt husks and malt dust presented a problem throughout the production area and silo floor. Site personnel had been using mobile vacuums but they had fallen into disrepair and replaced by brooms.
Low maintenance, simple to use and quiet, the bespoke centralised vacuum system was designed to fit under existing pipe work. The configuration meant that vacuum outlets could be placed where the client needed them most.
The ATEX approved system, rated for Zone 22, has a pipe run of 55 metres and incorporates 6 vacuum outlets. An air driven cartridge filter system auto cleans.
