Granulate separation pits in logistics systems have previously had to be cleaned extensively.

In order to replace the often expensive pumps used for this, a suction device is used for the first time at SCHMIDT Hürth. Developed there, the device works independently with a gasoline engine as a vacuum and pressure body. This makes it possible to carry out the surface suction of the separators by vacuum and to release the collected granulate into stacking containers by pressure.

This development significantly reduces maintenance and expenditure costs compared to the previously used solutions and helps to meet the increasing demands with regard to OCS (Operation Clean Sweep).
