For Pulp and Steel Plants
Sweep Clean Your Industrial Plant
Trombia sweeper removes up to 96% of finest dust particles from your precinct. Trombia sweeper does this on waterless surface, which means that you can use the sweeper year-round and in all outdoor areas as well as indoor halls.
Traditional sweeping methods tie the dust on the ground surface with water and, hence, you continue to struggle with the dust challenge once the wet surface dries up. This problem is managed accurately with Trombia.
Pulp, wood and steel plants typically contain also a lot of trash and debris that may easily damage any suction-based sweeping vehicles.
Trombia sweeper has been designed on a firm steel body without filters, conveyor belts suction inlets, or engines that are easily damaged in rougher conditions.
Instead of having to invest in a suction sweeper vehicle (cost 200 000 $+), you get more powerful cleaning performance by mounting a Trombia sweeper attachment on the wheel loader that your plant has readily available.
Unlike suction sweepers, Trombia has been designed to handle both the heavy and the fines. The Trombia® high performance broom is acting as a powerful mechanical sweeper in front of the fine dust removing airknife technology. Everything up to fist-size stones is picked up accurately.
Spreading dust in the air of pulp or steel plants is a critical employee health matter. Respirable illnesses such as lung cancer are found to be directly linked to PM2.5 particle-sized dust in the breathing air.
At an industrial plant this dust typically contains increasingly harmful chemicals and items. Trombia Sweeper is certified to be at the highest level of PM2.5 dust control and capabilities by the European United PM Test.
Fast Dust Cleaning Made Simple
When it comes to sweepers that are capable of accurately remove finest PM2.5 / PM10 dust while they sweep, the critical measurement to observe is the width of the suction inlet.
You will be surprised that most often the sweepers are equipped with only 60cm – 80 cm suction inlets, and the rest of the sweeping duty is done with mechanical gutter brooms around the suction.
Another critical measurement is the speed at which the chosen sweeper technology can actually use that suction inlet effectively.
This is where Trombia tops any sweeper product in the world:
Trombia Sweeper achieves fine dust cleaning efficiency of 10 000 – 20 000 m2/h (7 000 – 14 000 yd2).
