ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY GRAFFITI removal

Graffiti removal:

Graffiti removal with eco friendly cleaning technology Tornado ACS ®, is possible on clinker, natural stone, concrete, plaster, paint, tiles, plastic and many other surfaces easily and quickly. Our green cleaning equipment is the
ideal alternative to pressure washer or dry-ice blasting. The minimally abrasive operation protects the surface of being harmed.
The closed circuit does not require any protective clothing. 

The patented vacuum blast method allows a clean and eco friendly graffiti removal. The cleaning unit is set up in a few minutes
and ready for use. The expensive disposal of soiled cleaning materials is not necessary because the system operates without high pressure, water and chemicals.

 

Functioning:

After turning on, the jet cap (6) is placed on the surface (8) and adheres to it by vacuum. With inserting the jet lance (7) into the jet cap (6) the cycle is closed.

 

By gravity the granules (2) are passed through from the lower container (1) to a dosing system (3) into the air flow (4). The granules (2) are then transported through a flexible suction house (5) into the jet cap (6). Through the jet lance (7) the granulate impinges on the surface (8) to be worked on.

By moving the jet lance (7) the surface can be cleaned quickly and dust-free, stripped or roughened up. The process can be optimally monitored and controlled via 3 vision panels (9).

 

After impinging, the granules (2) and the removed dirt particles are sucked in immediately again. Through the suction hose (10) the abrasive mixture enters the upper part of the machine. There, it is separated by the cyclone principle. The dirt particles are received in the fine dust filter (11) and the granules fall into the middle container.

To reuse the granules, the flap (12) is opened and the granules enter the storage container (1). Coarse particles are kept on the screen (13). The work process begins again.

Tornado ACS ®, PROS and CONS OF THE VACUUM BLAST METHOD:

Compared to conventional pressure washers the vacuum blast method of the Tornado ACS ® has many advantages. Through the high velocity impact hard substances can be broken up and removed. Contamination like limestone or saltpetre can be easily and thoroughly cleaned without any difficulties. In case of soft substances though, the energy is being absorbed. Meaning that pollutions like chewing gum cannot be removed off a surface with this technology. Also for the operation of this cleaning equipment a dry surface is needed.

Concluding, the cleaning machine with its vacuum blast method Tornado ACS ® is a great alternative to pressure washers and dry-ice blasting, due to its easiness, accessibility and advantageous applicability. Various application fields of the Tornado ACS ® make it to the perfect cleaning solution when it comes to green cleaning.

Especially on heritage protected surfaces the minimally-abrasive technology is good to use.
The cleaning machine Tornado ACS ® removes toe pollutes and is gentle to the surface.


Another great advantage of this cleaning system is the closed circulation. This enables a continuous usage of the blasting medium, which is not only eco friendly but also economically advantageous. The effortless handling, the low noise level and the need of no special high power outlet facilitates the operations. At the same time the cleaning machine Tornado ACS ® needs to create negative pressure, in order to operate, which means the jet cap needs to adhere to the surface and close the circuit. 

Unevenness’s from 15 to 25 mm can be balanced out with the rubber sponges around the jet cap. Larger disparities have to be taken care of with custom made jet caps.
