Cement plants experience spilled material and track out around the facility, requiring durable sweepers. Materials can be a combination of crushed lime, coke and finished cement product. In addition, the cement product is reactive when in contact with water.
Sweepers with waterless/dry dust control include the Elgin Industrial Waterless Pelican and the Waterless Eagle are the most effective in cement plant applications. These sweepers can sweep dry dusty particles without using water to suppress dust. The Elgin Industrial Waterless Pelican also has an industrial option that includes reduced broom speed, a lower roller deflector and special skirting all designed for superior performance in bulk powder applications.
