Industrial cleaning equipment supplier Goscor Cleaning Equipment (GCE) has supplied machines to two large South African contract cleaning companies, Tsebo Cleaning Services and Bidvest Prestige Industrial.

GCE supplied Tsebo Cleaning Services with two Tennant cleaning machines – the Tennant S12 Sweeper and the Tennant T16 Scrubber, while Prestige was supplied with a Tennant Sentinel industrial sweeper.

“Prestige required a powerful, reliable machine to clean the industrial areas around chrome miner Samancor’s chrome mine as well as the plant itself. “The Tennant Sentinel is suitable for this application, owing to its durable and efficient sweeping and vacuuming action,” says Prestige Central 1 Division managing executive Abrie Pretorius.

The Sentinel ride-on sweeper features a centre-suspended, floating main brush that efficiently sweeps up sand, dirt, rocks, broken glass and bulky light debris.

The sweeping system works alongside a filtered vacuum dust control system that incorporates a self-cleaning filter mechanism, says Goscor national sales manager Alex Theodoridis.

“This combination allows for dust-free sweeping, in line with the most stringent air quality standard, the particulate matter 10 standard,” he adds.

With its four-wheel steer system, the Sentinel is able to slip under low clearances, weave in and out of obstacles, down alleyways and over thoroughfares with great manoeuverability.

Further, the machine gives operators a clear view of the sweeping area to maximise safety and enable total concentration on the job at hand.

The Tennant Sentinel also offers a 2.9-m-high dump that allows discharge into large roll-off bins and dump trucks.

Pretorius says the large hopper at the mine is made from noncorrosive stainless steel to enable virtually all types of debris to be picked up, including the iron-rich dust that is prevalent at the mine.

Further, the Sentinel is a suitable sweeping solution for almost any industrial application where large volumes of material need to be swept and where dust control is critical, says Theodoridis.

Meanwhile, Tsebo Cleaning required a cleaning solution at car manufacturer Toyota’s new warehouse in Bonaero Park, Gauteng, where there is extensive forklift activity dur- ing the day, resulting in an accumulation of dust, carbon dust, oil and stubborn dirt, explains contract manager Themba Ndlovu.

“We are using the Tennant S12 Sweeper and the Tennant T16 Scrubber to clean the warehouse floor at night and we are really happy with the performance of these machines.”

The Tennant S12 battery-powered rider sweeper is a compact sweeper with a sweeping path of 900 mm. Its manoeuvrability and retractable side brushes enable it to easily access tight corners.

Meanwhile, the redesigned T16 Scrubber, incorporating the latest in cleaning technology and solid construction, has extended the performance life of the machine.

Both contract cleaning companies agree that the backup and support from GCE is fast and reliable.
