The ports and shipping industry of Australia is no stranger to top-notch cleaning facilities and high-grade equipment. Wharf sweepers and container terminal sweepers are being used by forces that patrol the country’s air and seaports. For the past 28 years, ASC has been serving the shipping and ports industry, providing high-grade cleaning equipment to wash down dust, rubbish, and other contaminations. Townsville and Port Kembla’s ports were the first ones to use ASC sweepers, including the very famous ASC Eureka M6 Sweeper on their premises.

The Eureka M6 Sweeper is a powerful, heavy-duty wharf sweeper made of steel. It is designed to clean dust from congested areas as well as large floor spaces. It has a potent engine that offers better endurance and provides maximum reliability along with enhanced performance. The Eureka M6 sweeper is a compact machine, and yet, it gives the same level of productivity as many larger machines, making it fit for diverse use!
Please take a look at our exclusive port facility cleaning case study material to learn about our clients that use ASC scrubbers and sweepers to clean roadways, dust containers, eliminate airborne particles, keep births clean between the loading and unloading of air and sea cargo and scrub away any leakages. However, our machines do more than just sweep, scrub and clean! They increase the ports’ aesthetic appearance, control dust emissions, and therefore protect and environment and reduce labor costs since most of them are automated!
