Street sweepers play an essential role in the health and safety of our society and are used by cities and towns today to maintain the cleanliness of their neighborhoods. Streets, highways, and parking lots are important parts of our everyday lives which makes it vital to keep these areas clean to avoid accidents and injury. Since these areas can be abrasive, it is important to purchase durable street sweeper parts. Rubber-Cal offers a full spectrum of parts for road sweeper trucks and parking lot sweepers. We offer hoses for both the suctioning and blowing sides of a road sweeper as well as a line of flap rubber parts that are essential to functional sweeping applications. Additionally, we can also fabricate custom rubber street sweeper parts to the specific measurements of a road sweeper vehicle. Our line of street sweeper parts can be used with most brand name vehicles, such as an Elgin street sweeper, a Tymco truck or Schwarze sweepers.
Street Sweeper Parts
1. What Do Street Sweeper Parts Consist Of?
Street sweeper parts consists of both suction and blow hoses, each installed on opposite sides of the vehicle, and a flap rubber part that is installed on the underside of the vehicle to catch trash and debris that may pass under it. Because no two sweeping jobs are the same, Rubber-Cal offers street sweeper parts in both light-duty and heavy-duty materials to ensure even the most abrasive surfaces will not damage the parts or interfere with the performance of the road sweeper. Generally, parts for parking lot sweepers lean toward the lighter-duty applications since parking lots and structures do not have overly abrasive surfaces. A road sweeper, on the other hand, must use heavy-duty street sweeper parts in order to withstand the abrasive and uneven surfaces of highways, streets and commercial roadways. Brand name sweepers, such as an Elgin street sweeper truck, can be used for both light-duty and heavy-duty settings; therefore, it is important to choose the correct street sweeper parts that are durable enough to perform well in the face of varying levels of abrasive surfaces.
1(a). Positive and Negative Pressure Hoses
A road sweeper has two sets of hoses on each side of the vehicle with one set of hoses blowing air (positive pressure) and the other set sucking air (negative pressure). The materials used in our hose street sweeper parts are of high-quality to ensure effective functionality and are durable enough to handle physical objects passing through them. Hosing street sweeper parts need to be tough because any damage to the duct, such as a tear or puncture, will compromise the machine’s performance. It is especially important to have highly durable parts in highway trucks like Tymco and Schwarze sweepers because they will last for longer periods of time on highly abrasive surfaces, reducing frequent replacement costs. Because of this, hosing for street sweepers are usually made from polyurethane, PVC, and thermoplastic and synthetic rubber materials due to their durability and flexibility. Made in sizes ranging from an interior diameter, or ID, as narrow as 1.5 inches to as wide as 24 inches, our hoses can be used for Tymco and Nitehawk road sweeper models as well as Schwarze sweepers or Elgin sweeper trucks.
1(b). Flap Rubber
Most sweepers, if not all, have a rubber portion attached to its underside that is dragged along the ground to collect debris. This rubber flap part is designed to catch trash and other debris as the vehicle moves along to prevent them from being spread around materials before it can be vacuumed up by the negative pressure hoses. Because this piece of rubber flap is in constant contact with abrasive concrete surfaces, the rubber material used to make them must be tough and durable. Whether the parts are being used in parking lot sweepers or on more demanding roads, they will be subjected to constant grinding and scraping that can cause damage to the rubber flap and decrease its efficiency. Rubber street sweeper parts are strong and abrasion resistant enough to effectively do its job while being soft and flexible enough to prevent damage to the surfaces of streets and parking lots.
