  • CIVS - Scimitar Industrial Vacuum Cleaner Takes The Heat in United Arab Emirates.

    A major chocolate manufacturer in the United Arab Emirates has recently purchased a Thunder 1000 incinerator from Addfield Environmental Systems Ltd for the rapid incineration of large quantities of high moisture waste. Addfield manufacture and provide high quality industrial incinerators for animal, pet, marine and medical incineration, designed and made in Cannock, England.
    The Thunder 1000 incinerator is easily loaded via the top of the unit and has a load capacity of 1000kg; fitted with a brick lined sloping refractory which is not often used but has been proven to be the most cost and time effective. Despite the incredibly high efficiency of the incinerator naturally there will still be a small amount of ash left over after the operation, typically just
    1-3% and this is where CIVS comes in.

    Incinerator & Scimitar - Cropped

    For this particular company Addfield and CIVS selected the Scimitar industrial vacuum cleaner, due to the small amount of ash left over after the incineration process the 60 litre capacity version of the Scimitar was selected although a 100 litre version is also available.
    Scimitar60DEF_front_angleThe ash is removed by the Scimitar from the Thunder 1000 in a matter of minutes largely due to the high performance provided by the Scimitars three powerful single phase motors (220-240v or 110v) which can be operated independently if required.

    But all of this substantial power would be nothing without quality filtration and the Scimitar certainly has that, for this application a Heat Resistant filter was selected backed up with a certified HEPA filtration module to ensure the highest levels of filtration. The Scimitar range is fitted as standard with an electronic filter shaker where the filter is maintained by the simple press of a button on the front of the vacuum cleaner.

    The large diameter (60mm) heavy duty suction hose enables large quantities of ash to be gulped down incredibly quickly whilst a full set of stainless steel hand tools allows for the cleaning of the nooks and crannies around the incinerator and general day to day cleaning in the incinerator house.

  • Katana Vacuum Cleaner Removes Grinding Dust From London Underground Carriage Refurbishment

    Katana in Action London Underground 2

    Katana 60D fitted with two 25 metre hoses.

    Unknown to most the carriages of the London Underground go through extensive refurbishment in order to keep them clean, safe and provide a pleasant environment for the millions of travelers.
    One of the many refurbishment tasks is to replace the interiors, this includes seating, paneling and the flooring.

    When the old flooring is stripped from the trains the glue remains on the floor and has to be removed prior to the fitment of the new flooring. To remove the glue heavy duty sanding machines are used, this of course produces a lot of very fine dust and this is where the CIVS Katana compressed air industrial vacuum cleaners comes in to play.

    Due to the phenomenal performance of the Katana vacuum cleaners two separate twenty five metre lengths of hose are fitted to just one Katana enabling the one vacuum cleaner to remove the sanding dust directly from two sanders at once saving of a massive amount of time and expenditure in additional cleaning up. As the dust is collected directly at the sanders disc no dust is left to float around the carriages. The dust is collected in the easy to empty drop down drum which simply lower down with the push of a handle and can be wheeled away to empty.

    The Katana vacuum cleaners are fitted with very large primary filters and due to the fine nature of the dusts these where upgraded to ‘M’ Class filters, in addition the vacuum cleaners are also fitted with a HEPA filter cartridge which again offers filtration down to sub-micron sizes ensuring a safe working environment.
    The filter performance is monitored by the pressure gauge on the front of the vacuum cleaner, filter maintenance is easily carried out by the manual filter shaker fitted as standard to all CIVS Katana vacuum cleaners.

    As the Katana vacuum cleaners are powered by compressed air there no moving parts within the machine meaning that the units are incredibly easy and inexpensive to maintain not to mention quiet at just 70 dBa.

    When not being used on the sanding application the Katana vacuum cleaners can be found performing the day to day cleaning tasks from around the depot.
