Street sweepers keep streets clean and safe. Various street sweepers are designed to cater to specific needs and applications. Let’s look at street sweeper types and their unique features.
- Mechanical Broom Street Sweeper. These are the traditional and most common types of street sweepers. These machines use a rotating cylindrical broom to dislodge debris and dirt from the road surface, which is then collected in a hopper for disposal. Mechanical broom street sweepers are highly effective at removing larger debris and are often used for heavy-duty cleaning tasks, such as post-construction cleanup or after a large event.
- Regenerative Air Street Sweeper. This machine uses a closed-loop system to clean the road surface. It employs a high-pressure blast of air to dislodge debris and dirt, which is then vacuumed into a collection hopper. Regenerative air street sweepers are known for their efficiency and ability to remove finer particles, such as dust and sand, making them ideal for cleaning residential areas and maintaining air quality.
- Vacuum Street Sweeper. These street sweepers use powerful suction to remove debris from the road surface. They have a large vacuum nozzle positioned close to the ground to capture dirt and debris effectively. Vacuum street sweepers are highly versatile and can be used for various cleaning tasks, including general street cleaning, parking lot maintenance, and cleaning around storm drains.
- High-Efficiency Street Sweeper. These machines provide superior cleaning performance while minimizing environmental impact. They often combine the features of mechanical broom, regenerative air, and vacuum street sweepers to deliver the best possible results. High-efficiency street sweepers have low-emission engines and noise-reduction systems.
