Typical sweepers needed in plants where grain is processed into powder for various applications are needed to sweep up ground grain spilled around the processing as well as track out. Sweepers must be able to handle the fine grains, like processed corn or wheat, which are dry bulk powders that react to water, meaning they can begin to ferment and create odor problems. Sweeping should be dry, yet able to handle small particles.
The best sweepers for these situations include the waterless/dry dust control Elgin Industrial Pelican and waterless/dry dust control Elgin Eagle. They can sweep the dry dusty particles without using water to suppress the dust. The Industrial Waterless Pelican also has an industrial option that includes reduced broom speed, a lower roller deflector and special skirting, all designed for superior performance in bulk powder applications.
