How a vacuum cleaning system can add to your bottom line and keep your plant safe
If your plant's standard housekeeping procedure involves time-consuming, labor-intensive manual cleaning, it's time to consider a better way: using an industrial vacuum cleaning system. This article explains how a portable or central vacuum cleaning system can add to your bottom line and keep your workers and plant safe from combustible dust explosion hazards.
Most bulk solids plants strive to acquire the latest in automated processing and handling technologies to increase production and minimize labor costs. But many plants still use time-consuming manual cleaning methods, sweeping and hauling away dust and debris with brooms, dustpans, and wheelbarrows or sucking it up with an inadequate shop-type vac from the local hardware store. Besides being labor-intensive, these manual cleaning methods interrupt plant production -- meaning lost production and lost profit -- and create combustible dust explosion hazards.
