Big Brute Industrial Vacuum Cleaner helps recovery of precious metals from dust
January 20, 2014
Arc Metal Ltd, Harlow, is using a Big Brute Warehouseman Industrial Vacuum Cleaner to recover precious metals from the dust generated in their recycling processes.
Arc Metal Ltd, based in Harlow, Essex, recycles catalytic converters from motor vehicles and reclaims the precious metals therein.
Peter Lee, the managing director, was looking for a solution to help with general cleaning around his premises. His staff had previously been using a broom to sweep the dust up which was time-consuming.
In addition to keeping his workplace clean and safe, the dust Peter wanted to clean up was also laden with the precious metals he was recovering.
Peter knew of the Big Brutes from one of his previous jobs where they had many of them and contacted us for a solution.
We recommended the Big Brute Warehouseman Industrial Vacuum Cleaner. The Big Brute Warehouseman is ideal for cleaning large floor areas quickly without stirring up dust into the air. Coupled with an optional Floor, Wall and Ceiling Toolkit, this gives the flexibility to clean dust from every part of the building, including high up racking and from window ledges where dust can settle out of sight.
With the help of the Big Brute Warehouseman, Peter and his staff spend less time cleaning and have a safer, working environment.
“The big brute is much faster and easier than using the broom, and as the waste is collected inside the drum makes it easier to manage,” Peter told us.
“The value of product we collected with the Big Brute has far outweighed the initial cost of the machine. It’s a great piece of kit that we wouldn’t be without.”
