PowerBoss Dust Stop – Side Broom Jacket

A Waterless Dust Control Option for Sweeping Machines

The purpose of an industrial sweeping machine is to collect and contain as much dirt, dust, and debris as possible, as efficiently as possible. To improve efficiency, most sweepers either have standard or optional side brooms which are attached to either or both of the front corners of the machine. These help to expand the sweeping width by guiding additional dirt under the sweeper for collection by the main broom and vacuum system. However, in particularly dusty environments, side brooms can have the unfortunate side effect of stirring up fine dust particles, countering your cleaning efforts. In some cases, a mist of water might be used to keep the dust down, but this can result in a muddy mess that’s hard to sweep up, or may simply not be viable based on the type of facility (imagine the sticky mess of trying to control sugar manufacturing dust with water). Now for the solution: Dust Stop Broom Jackets.

Normally, the spinning broom generates a suction and release of airflow that sprays fine dust into the air away from the machine. Dust Stop elegantly solves this problem by covering the side broom with a high-quality and eco-friendly Linatex jacket which cuts off the airflow without getting in the way of the broom’s sweeping ability and extended cleaning path. That means the machine operator will be breathing in less dust, and it’ll keep the dust from landing on adjacent shelves, equipment, or areas you’ve already cleaned. And when we say “less dust”, we mean up to 90% less compared to a conventional side broom!
