Faster than a broom sweep
Driver safety improved and productivity up with electric CleenSweep tarp system
KEITH Manufacturing Co introduces the newest addition to its line of trailer sweeps with the Electric CleenSweep tarp system.
Used in conjunction with a Keith Walking Floor self-unloading system, the CleenSweep tarp system ‘sweeps’ out the residual material as the trailer unloads.
It eliminates the need for brooms and manual tarps, reducing the risk of injuries because the driver never needs to enter the trailer.
Powered by a battery-operated winch system, the CleenSweep tarp extends down the inside of the trailer, with the load resting on the bottom of the tarp.
As the Walking Floor system unloads the trailer, the weight of the material pulls the tarp along the floor, cleaning it as it goes.
Once the unloading is completed, the CleenSweep tarp is retracted at the push of a button.
With the CleenSweep tarp, driver productivity and safety increase because drivers can quickly get back on the road and never need to enter the trailer for sweeping.
Using the CleenSweep tarp system is up to 10 minutes faster than sweeping the trailer with a broom.
Because the driver does not have to enter the trailer to retract a manual tarp or to push a broom, the risk of knee and back injuries is reduced.
A clean trailer also offers several benefits. Payload cross contamination from one load to the other is minimised when unloading products such as mulch, grain, livestock feed, wood products and similar commodities.
The electric version of the CleenSweep system is lightweight, taking up virtually no payload.
It is also easy to install and operate, with the battery charging off the trailer’s power.
The Walking Floor system serves as the flooring of a trailer and is a self-unloading system. This ‘moving floor’ unloader comprises a series of floor slats powered by a hydraulic drive.
As the floor cycles through its phases, material is conveyed or unloaded.
Keith Manufacturing Co has provided a variety of industries with reliable and innovative Walking Floor technology.
