Chewing Gum – Pavement Cleaning’s Sticky Problem

before and after chewing gum removalThe chewing gum market has been steadily increasing in recent years. Many consumers dispose of their gum responsibly; however it is still being dropped onto pavements by many. It is the second most common litter after cigarette butts. Defra reports that gum contributes to pavement staining more than any other litter. Unfortunately this mainly occurs around schools, cinemas and fast food outlets frequented by the young.

Isn’t There a Better Way?

Cleaning chewing gum residue from pavements is time consuming and uses a combination of aggressive techniques. These require areas to be cordoned off, large quantities of water and sometimes additional chemicals. Add to this inconvenience, disruption and wear to the pavement fabric and you will understand why we often get asked: “Isn’t there a better way?”

Now There Is

Well now there is. After many months of co-operation and development with specialist gum removal company CGRS, trials of a new technique using one of our pavement cleaning machines have proven spectacularly successful.

99% of Chewing Gum Residue Removed In One Pass

As the accompanying pictures show the result is remarkable, 99% of gum residue is removed in one pass with the pavement being deep cleaned at the same time. This is achieved without using any chemicals and the waste water and gum residue is collected by the machine. Result: Clean, bacteria free pavements which are immediately usable by the public.

 Significant Breakthrough

For local and city councils this represents a significant breakthrough. Our machine removes gum four to six times quicker than a man with a high pressure lance, and it also deep cleans the pavement in that time. One pass over a width of 1.2metres at a speed of 1mph removes 99% of gum residue and leaves the pavement clean and dry. No high pressure jetting means pavement damage from dislodged sand and grout is non-existent. And all this is done unbeknown to pedestrians who just carry on life as normal.

So, after many years of trying we can now say: “Yes there is a better way; we have a solution to the sticky problem of the chewing gum blight on our pavements.”

LPG Power for Kubota RTV500

At a time when diesel powered vehicles are becoming less acceptable Euromec launches an LPG fuel option for the Kubota RTV500 utility vehicle. For vehicles used in schools, factories and universities, LPG offers clean power without the downtime and cost associated with electric power and batteries.

Customer Driven DevelopmentKubota RTV500 with LPG power

The Euromec LPG powered RTV is the result of development driven by customer demand. Under the front bonnet is a refillable LPG tank, plumbed and wired into the vehicle’s main systems. On the dashboard, controls tell the operator how much fuel is available; the RTV can be switched to petrol if LPG is not available. Refilling the LPG tank is easy using the nozzle mounted just under the front bumper.

Gas Bottle Option

Apart from using the refillable LPG tank the RTV can also use LPG from a bottle. In the front right-hand corner of the load area a simple bottle mount and fuel line make fitting and changing a gas bottle simple.

Better Running Costs, Whole Life Costs and Cold Weather Performance

When considering a clean fuel utility vehicle, battery power is often the only choice. However, this LPG option offers better running costs, whole life costs and cold weather performance. It has the added benefit of 100% availability as it does not need recharging.

Operators also benefit from the LPG choice; cab heaters are available and much more effective, more power means gritters, pressure washers and attachments work harder for longer.

Kubota RTV500 Warranty

This carefully engineered LPG fuel option for the Kubota RTV500 is unique and only available from Euromec. It does not infringe the Kubota product warranty.

Burghley Horse Trials Round-up

img_2137
After a seriously busy 2016 Burghley Horse trials we thought we would round-up what happened during our time there.

We had our regular spot and early Thursday morning bang – off we went. Great weather brought out the crowds and everyone was in a festive spirit eagerly awaiting the start of the main event. Numerous contacts made on our stand with machines being sold from the off.

Sold this smart Kubota RTV400 on Saturday

Friday was fine and hot. Many of our loyal customers chose to visit and place orders, great news and thank you. Saturday much the same but rain!  “Our man” Andrew Hoy went into the lead of the event after his cross country round, sadly didn’t last but well done Andrew. Equestrian people are not put off by a little rain and things were still real busy.

Sunday, the last day, was very busy. Great crowd saw a pulsating show jumping competition and we were rushed off our feet. Andrew finished 20th making three Aussies in the top 20! After four days we packed-up and went home tired but very content. A great event, lots of new friends and not so many machines to bring back! Perfect.

British Manufacturing Success Story

We designed, developed and now manufacture a unique washing and scrubbing head for use on compact road and pavement sweepers.

The head was originally conceived around ten years ago. Around this time Councils and cleaning contractors became increasingly concerned about the heavily contaminated water produced during street cleaning going straight into the drains. We knew from our experience providing industrial scrubber driers that using similar technology for street and pavement cleaning would solve this problem.

Our scrubber head is the result and now sells all over the world. Not only do we sell it fitted to our compact road scrubber drier, but it is also sold to other companies selling similar machines. As you can see in the video below it does a great job that no other machine can match.

The story here is simple. At the 2016 Canadian GP meeting a competing car had its gearbox break and deposit all its oil in the pit lane. This was obviously unacceptable so a local cleaning contractor used a machine fitted with one of our head and squeegee kits, built in Market Harborough, to wash the pit lane and collect the waste water and oil. Note the clean line across the white road sector, it’s even cleaner than the surrounding pavement.

British ingenuity and engineering skill at work, brilliant.

RTV With Serious Cleaning Capability

Kubota RTV500 with on-board jet washer

Delivered today to the Bushey Jewish Cemetery, having been specially modified for their application, is this customised Kubota RTV500.  A large water bowser is hooked-up to a front mounted, handheld jet washer with a heavy duty hose. Providing the water pressure is an auxiliary Honda motor connected to a pump, all mounted at the rear on a custom load-bed. Having been thoroughly tested and trialled by the client this is the first of many machines that will be provided over the next months.
