BOCM PAULS eliminates manual handling with a Big Brute Skip Tip Industrial Vacuum Cleaner
March 7, 2013
BOCM PAULS at Rougham, near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, are using a Big Brute Wet & Dry Skip Tip to reduce the manual handling of wet waste.
BOCM PAULS, the leading producer of animal feed in the UK, have pits filled with wet grain and wheat that needed cleaning out regularly at their Rougham plant. They also needed something that would help them with general dust and spills to maintain their high standards of cleanliness around the plant.
John Irving, the Production Supervisor, showed us how they were using an internal static system with a small industrial vacuum cleaner to clean out their pits.
We recommended two different Big Brute Industrial Vacuum Cleaners for their cleaning requirements. For cleaning out wet grain from their pits, we recommended a Big Brute Wet & Dry Skip Tip. Wet waste can be extremely heavy to handle and the Big Brute Skip Tip offers a safe and easy way of emptying directly into skips with your forklift.
For general cleaning, we recommended a Big Brute Warehouseman Industrial Vacuum Cleaner with a 5m length of suction hose. The Big Brute Warehouseman makes it quick and easy to clean large floor areas, without stirring up dust, with its front-mounted floor brush. The suction hose can also be attached to clean under machinery or racking with ease.
John Irving and his team have found that cleaning up is now much quicker, due to the Big Brute’s greater power and bigger capacity. “It sucks up wet waste out of a 2m pit with ease,” John told us.
“We’d heard good things about the Big Brutes from other users. A demonstration on our site proved the machine could handle all our requirements.”
