It is highly essential to keep the roads and roadsides spic and span. Cleaner roads are safer roads. Maintaining a clean road involves the removal of litter and removal of leaves from the roads. This not only keeps the roads clean and tidy but assists keeping the roads safe and the road drains free of objects that could impede water flow. Regular maintenance of the roads reduces air pollution, gives clear visibility and reduces accidents that are caused due to the sedimented debris on the roads.
Keeping the earth better by making it clean and waste free has become a need in the last few years. People have now come to understand the need for cleaner towns and cities as everyone has become conscious of a clean and safe environment.
Road sweepers have been around for ages in developed countries and were designed to keep cities and towns clean. Sanitation and waste removal has become more mechanised in developed countries. This concept is now slowly picking up in India with the growth in infrastructure and social awareness.
Roads in India were swept traditionally by people with brooms. Sweeping away garbage, leaves, animal waste and any other kind of visible filth was always done by people. They would do this for hours and hours, which could become a tedious task after a while. Beyond sweeping, the even more herculean task was to collect all this and to dispose it. Now with increased awareness on personal hygiene and lack of willingness amongst the people for such menial jobs, it has now become a necessity and compulsion to resort to mechanised cleaning.
With all the busy streets and fleeing automobiles, it is absolutely impossible to maintain the long stretch of highways and large cities clean with manual work force. The practical problems involved in maintaining a highway or large area start with managing the large manpower required and then comes the question of cleaning efficiency and management of time. The usage of a road sweeper makes more sense. A Road sweeper / highway sweeper for highway cleaning, the Truck Mounted Sweepers built by Roots Multiclean Ltd are of the highest quality standards, meeting the toughest cleaning requirement and are known for their functionality and reliability.
Prominent features of the Roots Truck Mounted Sweepers
Function The machine sweeps the debris and directs it into the suction head which collects the dust and dirt particles into the hopper. The machine also effectively collects Brick size particles of debris, and certain construction materials and spillages. The wander hose helps to reach all corners and gutters where the machine cannot reach and takes the debris to the hopper. The Roots Truck Mounted Sweepers come with a high-pressure water jet to aid in cleaning certain places. The high pressure water jet can also be used to clean the hopper after dumping the collected dirt.
Road sweeping machines are used in a wider application area than just road sweeping. Their versatility allows them to be used on large construction sites and as well as industrial sites where the collection of debris is important, for both safety reasons as well as aesthetic reasons. The reason why the majority of road sweeping machines are truck based is to allow for extended time sweeping and to accommodate the resulting larger volumes of debris. Road sweeping machines are available in different designs and debris feeding mechanisms to allow usage in different applications and terrains.
