The Client

Cross River Rail is an underground railway project through central Brisbane, which is currently under construction. Cross River Rail will see the development of a new rail line underneath Brisbane River, and the redevelopment of a number of stations in the Brisbane central business district

The Challenge

The construction site had a lot of silica dust with thousands of tons of concrete being poured every day.

The site had narrow access and required a machine that as maneuverable and capable of holding large quantities of dust.

The company trialed several industrial vacuum cleaners but proved unsuccessful due to the sheer quantity of silica dust that had to be swept up.

The vacuum cleaner concept involved electrical cords that proved too dangerous given constant water spillage while construction was going on.

ASC’s Rafael Rodrigues was asked to attend the site and recommend the appropriate solution.

The Result.

The only solution for this application was the ASC cement approved Eureka M1 sweeper.

This machine was fitted with a Concrete Industry approved M class filter.

The machines was also fitted with an industry approved water misting system.

This “misting system ” is designed to suppress any airborne dust generated when the side broom is being used.

Coupled with the best filtration system available, the machine could sweep the dusty floors with zero airborne dust wet or dry.

All the staff & management were very impressed with the ASC M1’s performance.

The company had no hesitation placing a large order with ASC’s Rafael Rofriguez.
