The steel manufacturing industry in Australia deals with tons of scrap metals and other recyclables on a daily basis. It is only common sense to assume that the manufacturing sites tend to get super dusty and dirty and require efficient cleaning on a regular basis. Steel manufacturing facility cleaning and warehouse sweeping are essential to ensure that premises stay dust-free at all times and meet the health and labour standards set by the industry authorities.

The best-suited product offering from ASC for the steel manufacturing industry is the ASC M8 Rider Sweeper. This powerful and heavy-duty sweeper is perfect for cleaning large outdoor spaces and open-air environments. The swarf sweeper is able to collect large amounts of gravel and dust. Its ability to pass over speed bumps tackle gradients, and clean dirt and debris from rough terrains are what makes it so reliable. The M8 Rider Swarf Sweeper is also easy to operate, can effortlessly be driven around corridors of warehouses as well as open spaces, and comes equipped with several safety features such as indicator lights, seat belts, drum brakes, reverse beepers, and pressure sensors.

Please have a look at our steel manufacturing case study material to learn how manufacturing giants like Heka Hoods, Neumann Steel, Kingspan Water, Mesh & Bar Pty Ltd, Newland Powder Coating, and Cronos Steel use ASC scrubbers and sweepers to get rid of the dirt, debris, trash and dust that accumulates on site after the vigorous manufacturing of steel.
