All the units in the entire fleet were specially developed for working with hazardous, contaminated substances and were built in accordance with all applicable safety standards. Each class is further described below.



THE CYCLOVAC

The CycloVac separators is suitable for suctioning, displacing, transporting and unloading of dry, wet and hazardous substances, such as various types of catalyst, gravel, powders, fly ash and sludge.


THE ECOVAC

The EcoVac is suitable for suctioning, discharging and transporting fluid and hazardous substances, such as liquids, sludge, fats, oils, fuels and chemicals.


THE MEGAVAC

The MegaVac is suitable for suctioning, displacing, transporting and unloading of dry, wet and hazardous substances, such as various types of catalyst, gravel, powders, fly ash and sludge.


THE MEGAVAC LOADER

The MegaVac Loader is suitable for suctioning and displacing dry, wet and hazardous substances, such as various types of catalyst, gravel, powders, fly ash and sludge. The MegaVac Loader can also unload into big bags.


THE MEGAVAC CYCLONE LOADER

The MegaVac Cyclone Loader self-supporting vacuum, storage and bag metering unit can be used for suctioning, storing and bagging dry materials, such as powders, ceramics, asbestos fibres and other contaminated substances.



BENEFITS OF THE INDUSTRIAL VACUUM SERVICES

  • Allow for the recovery of raw materials and partially processed material spillages along the production line.

  • Regular cleaning enhances access to machinery thereby:

  • Facilitating condition monitoring.

  • Improved equipment reliability and availability.

  • Minimising downtime in the event of a breakdowns.

  • Timeous removal of spillages (Wet / Dry) eliminates slip and fall hazards. Removing the clutter also reveals hidden electrical, chemical or mechanical hazards.

  • Safe, effective and efficient removal and disposal of dry and wet wastes.

  • Minimum manpower requirements for cleaning and recovery operations.

  • Cleaning operations do not have to interrupt normal production operations.
