Regenerative Air System

The Most Efficient Way to Sweep

A TYMCO Regenerative Air Sweeper uses a controlled blast of air to dislodge debris from the surface. All debris picked up by the pick-up head is directed up the large diameter heavy duty suction hose into the hopper. TYMCO removes trash, dirt and fines from the entire area beneath the full-width pick-up head. Regenerative Air means a TYMCO never exhausts polluted air into the atmosphere like a vacuum sweeper.

TYMCO Regenerative Air Sweepers

With TYMCO’s large patented gutter brooms, the sweeping width can be extended to one of the widest in the industry. And a TYMCO doesn’t require a main broom as do mechanical and vacuum sweepers. Other sweepers just move dust around – exhausting it out or pushing it into the cracks – only a TYMCO picks it all up. TYMCO’s floating pick-up head is designed to adjust to the curvatures and irregularities of paved surfaces for optimum pick-up. A TYMCO is efficient even in rainy or wet conditions. When brooms smear and vacuums clog, TYMCO still cleans, and that means maintaining your cleaning management schedule.

More Than Just Vacuum

Vacuum sweepers utilize a constantly moving windrow broom to transfer debris over to a suction nozzle at one side of the sweeper. The debris is then routed up a small diameter suction tube. Only the area beneath the nozzle (approximately 30 inches) is vacuum cleaned. The majority of the area (approx. 66%) is merely swept with a broom, pushing particles into the cracks. This broom needs to be replaced about every 80-100 hours of operation, costing thousands of dollars over the life of the machine.

Vacuum sweepers, by design, exhaust air potentially filled with fine dust particles, into the atmosphere. Where do these particulates go? Right where they came from, they settle back onto the road surface.

Better Than Just A Broom

A mechanical broom sweeper can clean the surface of large debris, but dirt and fine particulates are left behind on the surface and in the cracks. Brooms, by design, actually fill the cracks with dirt. Additionally, a main broom needs to be replaced about every 200 hours of operation, costing thousands of dollars over the life of the machine. A TYMCO sweeper doesn’t need a constantly moving broom to sweep. TYMCO removes dirt from the cracks because air can go where brooms can’t.
