THE STEEL MILLS’ CHALLENGE
With high demands on clean-up and recycling, steel mills have a though challenge when it comes to material waste. Because how do one collect waste quickly and efficiently, without the wear on operators/workers and creating a better work environment? This is where a vacuum loader comes into the picture.
Long downtimes during clean-up
In the steel, metal and cement industries, dust and industrial waste can cause major problems. Material waste affects product quality and service intervals on production equipment, but also risks extending stop times and service times when cleanup is required. Often the waste material is also valuable and reusable. But it takes strong action for efficient cleaning in the steel industry.
Efficient and environmentally friendly
With a DISAB vacuum loader, dust, spillage and waste can be cleaned up and collected in an efficient and environmentally friendly way. The powerful vacuum technology is often used when materials are spilled out and need to be quickly collected, but also in general cleaning and transport.
