There is much talk about the duration of brushes of road cleaning sweepers.
Clients usually ask us the same question: “How long do these brushes last?” And as the answer is ambiguous: “It depends”, we are encouraged to write this post.
As we mentioned, the duration of the brushes depend on many factors: the sweeper machine, the driver, the material to be swept, the road to be swept, and even the climate conditions. The same brush, with exactly the same amount of scanning material, has different duration according to different working conditions:
It depends on the sweeping machine and the driver, since a brush with poor adjustment or working excessively pressed against the ground, it will have a much shorter duration than one that works in good condition.
It depends on the material to be swept, since there are more abrasive residues than others. Is not the same to sweep sand as butts. Thus, the more abrasive it is, the less the brushes will last. It depends on the path that is swept, since the brush is brushing with it while sweeping, and when it is more aggressive, the less the brushes will last. It is not the same to sweep over concrete, asphalt, sidewalks, or marble tiles.
It depends on the climatic conditions, since in a humid climate, the ground being wet, the brush friction sweeping is less and therefore, the longer the duration. On the contrary, a drier soil, in addition to increasing friction due to lack of lubrication sweeps with more abrasive sweeping material as there is more dust in the environment.
In conclusion, we repeat that the same brush, with exactly the same amount of
Sweeping material, has different duration according to different working conditions.
