Street Sweepers: How They work

Street Sweepers became widely available across the United States in the 20th century. Since then, technology has improved and enabled these machines to address environmental concerns better. Apart from being more efficient, they have also become quieter and more thorough in cleaning.

Street sweeping machines are a crucial element in any city’s sanitation service. They rid streets, avenue and roadways of trash, debris, dirt, leaves and litter. Their designs differ depending on the type of clean-ups required.

The street sweeping cycle begins with a powerful fan that draws air from the hopper. The hopper acts like a vacuum, which sucks all the dirt it while it is lightly sprayed with water. Air is continuously sucked in by the blower and goes through a screen which filters out waste particles. To remove it, the air is cycled through the blower and the remaining dust falls out. The cycle is then repeated.

Street sweepers are also effective in industrial or retail settings. Owning a machine like this is beneficial because it collects trash in large volumes in a lesser amount of time compared to manual removal. Cleaning companies offer street sweeper rental services that many large companies and the city’s sanitation services can take advantage of.
