Fine dusts populate the busy site, varying from fine clay particles to brick dust and chippings. Keeping kiln and clay processing areas clean is a constant problem. Originally all areas were cleaned manually by operatives with face masks using yard brooms.
The Dust Guard System constantly sprays a very fine mist of water over the brushes to suppress air borne dust. Dust is visually improved and a large 10m2 washable panel filter ensures dust free sweeping throughout.
A filter shaker facility prevents the build up of dust and any potential clogging. The main broom is free floating with the ride on machine providing a sweeping path of up to 1600mm.
