Dustless Sweeping Technology
TYMCO is pleased to once again accept the leadership role of developing a sweeper that can sweep in the harsh conditions of winter snow and anti-skid material without the use of water as a dust control, as well as provide year-round peace of mind PM10 and PM2.5 (particulate matter) removal from sweeping surfaces all around the world.
The concept of dustless sweeping began more than 25 years ago at TYMCO and from the many different types of customers worldwide continues to update and improve the DST-6 and DST-4 as additional technology is developed.
TYMCO and other sweeper manufacturers were invited by the City of Toronto, Canada to be part of the first Toronto Protocol for providing sweepers that would improve the quality of life for its citizens by picking up and removing the harmful airborne particulates that was believed to be responsible for causing respiratory problems to many people living in the city.
TYMCO accepted the invitation and after the extremely intense "sweep-off" with several other brands of sweepers, the results were so telling that TYMCO was asked to be tested and have the results verified by both ETV (Environmental Technology Verification) Canada Engineers and PAMI (Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute) Engineering staff.
As a result of the TYMCO Model DST-6 Sweeper performance, multiple cities in Ontario, Canada and the U.S. have purchased TYMCO's Dustless Sweepers and years have enjoyed not only cleaner streets but a better quality of life for their citizens.
The overall pick-up performance of the TYMCO Model DST-6 has still not been achieved by any other sweeper manufacturer as the above mentioned verified test reveals. This performance also applies to TYMCO’s smaller, Model DST-4 that is used by many customers to sweep narrow allies, streets and industrial complexes.
The TYMCO Model DST-4 and Model DST-6 performance claims have been verified by Canada's Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program. Canada ETV is an independent verification organization that assures the market that environmental technology performance claims are credible, valid, and supported by reliable tests and information. The verification was completed by Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI), Saskatchewan, using ETV General Verification Protocol.
