Regenerative Air Street Sweepers

Regenerative Air Street Sweepers use side gutter brooms to direct dirt and debris under the vehicle, but that’s where the similarities to mechanical sweepers end. The primary collection mechanism of a regenerative air sweeper is the wide pick-up hood on its underside, which uses a sealed loop of air to continuously blast and dislodge dirt from the road, then immediately vacuum it up to be separated and contained in the hopper. This allows for a wider cleaning path, more thorough collection of dust, and better containment of dust than is possible with a mechanical sweeper.
