Industrial Sweeping Applications




Cement

Cement plants experience spilled material and track out around the facility, requiring durable sweepers. Materials can be a combination of crushed lime, coke and finished cement product. In addition, the cement product is reactive when in contact with water.

Suitable Sweepers

Sweepers with waterless/dry dust control include the Elgin Industrial Waterless Pelican and the Waterless Eagle are the most effective in cement plant applications. These sweepers can sweep dry dusty particles without using water to suppress dust. The Elgin 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.



Power Plants

Coal, coal dust and fly ash from spillage are the typical contaminants and debris that sweepers must deal with at power plants. These materials are all dry bulk powder and the use of water can reduce pick up efficiency due to creating material that will stick to surfaces.

Suitable Sweepers

The best products are waterless/dry dust control sweepers, which include the Elgin Industrial Waterless Pelican and the Elgin Waterless Eagle. 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.



Grain Processing

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.

Suitable Sweepers

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.



Lime and Quarry Processing

Lime and quarry operations need to move sweepers out on main and ancillary roads where material spillage happens. The typical material to be swept is sand, gravel and lime dust.

Suitable Sweepers

Any Elgin Sweeper is appropriate if wetting the material is acceptable. All of the sweepers are capable of providing excellent pickup of the material presented.



Ports

The type of materials that can be found at ports varies widely, ranging from spilled bulk powder to large bulky material such as broken pallet pieces. Ports are congested areas that require sweepers with high maneuverability. Most ports contain a system of railroad tracks as well running from the shipping docks to the outside transportation terminals.

Suitable Sweepers

The best sweeper for port applications is the Elgin Industrial Pelican, because they have high maneuverability, high dump capabilities, the ability to sweep a wide range of material, 360 degree visibility and sweeper dirt shoes that offer flexibility to better handle railroad tracks.
