Nilfisk & Consultant Cleaners Excel at Faerch Plastic

21 December 2016

Consultant Cleaners Ltd have successfully deployed a new Nilfisk SC6000 ride on scrubber dryer at the Faerch Plast food packaging manufacturing site in Durham.

The new SC6000 is a next generation, battery operated scrubber dryer designed for large indoor areas.

Total cost of ownership was key to product development, enabling high speed scrubbing and drying with ultra-low levels of water, detergent and power.

Consultant Cleaners ltd are part of the Consultant Services Group, a family run business founded in 1969, who provide services across the UK including cleaning, catering, vending and Facilities Management.

Sarah Bolam, Sales Manager for Consultant Cleaners outlined for us the pre and post sales situation at the Faerch site.

‘The Faerch Plast manufacturing site is a new contract for us and we were obviously keen to make a difference to this large facility which includes 150,000 sq feet of white painted concrete floors.

'The nature of their business obviously makes facility cleanliness paramount. The floors were previously cleaned with a breakdown prone 6 year old machine that frequently left streaks behind that needed to be mopped afterwards.

'After 3 weeks of using the SC6000 the floors were much brighter and cleaner than before and the client was delighted.

'Our team on site were noticeably lifted by the performance of the Nilfisk scrubber dryer and really enjoy using the machine which is very easy to operate.

'All team members received certified training from a Nilfisk representative and the trainer made sure everyone was really confident before he left us. Ongoing support has been first class too. Overall I give the machine 10 out of 10.

'It makes our lives so much easier and the results have been excellent. The entire team agree that it’s a well-made and very effective machine.’

The SC6000 is available in 3 battery operated versions with brush deck options for 86, 91 and 105 cm. With a solution and recovery tank of 190 litres and with limited use of water and detergent the requirement for dump and refills is much reduced.

Productivity is therefore very good. The unit features the SmartFlowTM function which automatically adjusts the solution flow according to the travel speed of the machine.

Additional savings can be made to water, detergent and power if the client opts for the EcoflexTM system.

The SC6000 includes an embedded diagnostic system and features easy and fast access for service and maintenance.

Tools are not required for most operations including changing the squeegee and replacing scrubbing brushes. Nilfisk is one of the world's largest manufacturers of commercial and industrial cleaning equipment.

From Tub Vacs through to Grounds Maintenance and Road Sweepers, Nilfisk offers a complete and affordable solution to all cleaning challenges.
