What is a Centralised Vacuum Cleaning System?
A centralised vacuum cleaning system is a fixed network of pipes around a factory with strategically placed plug-in points for hoses and cleaning tools with product conveyed to a self-cleaning filter plant and single point of dust collection.
What does a Centralised Vacuum Cleaning System consist of?
Integral to a Centralised Vacuum Cleaning System is the self-cleaning filter plant. This central product collection point utilises compressed air to purge the filter elements inside the unit meaning no loss of suction, more consistent performance, and a very long filter lifespan.
Where can a Centralised Vacuum Cleaning System be used?
It can be used in all industries that create dust or granules as part of their processing, utilise bulk handling of powders or granules, or have fugitive emissions / spillages of these types of products. The system can be used to effectively clean the whole factory including floors, platforms, machinery etc.
What are the benefits of having a system in place versus stand-alone vacuums?
A centralised vacuum cleaning system has multiple benefits compared to stand-alone vacuums:
- Manual handling is reduced as machines are not required to be moved or carried around the factory and up staircases. Operators simply plug a hose into the nearest vacuum point
- Performance is optimised due to the self-cleaning filter plant meaning more consistent air flow and efficient suction
- Higher suction rates are possible compared to portable vacuums
- Filter change of individual vacuum units is not required
- Product collection capacity is far greater than individual vacuum units
- Product collection is in a centralised place no matter how many users are operating
- Manual handling of collected product is reduced or even eliminated with the optional automated discharge system
