Case Study: Lantmännen Bakery (Finland)
The Latmännen Bakery in Finland recently put SpaceVac to work in their facility for the first time…
The bakery requires monthly cleans at high-levels to deal with the problem of moths. These moths nest in the rafters and beams of the building and due to their short life cycle require monthly cleaning to prevent infestation and possible contamination of the products below.
Previously this facility was being cleaned by two members of staff by way of a scissor lift. This was an extremely inefficient way of cleaning – taking some 300 hours per month to clean, with the additional issue that only 40% of high-level areas were accessible meaning 60% went uncleaned.
In addition to being a dangerous and time consuming job, the bakery was spending a small fortune on access equipment and man hours every month.
By utilising a SpaceVac however, the bakery is now able to complete the monthly cleans in a fraction of the time. By equipping two members of staff with a SpaceVac, the bakery is not only able to completely remove the risks and costs of hiring in a scissor lift to reach the high-level areas, but also reduce the cleaning time required each month to less than a third of the time previously required.
In addition – not only is 100% of the facility now clear of dust and debris and possible contamination – but operators onsite can enjoy peace of mind knowing that the cleaning system at their fingertips, is completely conductive and certified as safe for use in the explosive atmospheres created by the spread of combustible dust.
