2200 Gallon Dust Suppressor

2200 Gallon Dust Suppressor

Client:  Viridor Waste Management

Viridor Waste Management is one of the UK’s leading resource and waste management companies.  They work with over 30 local authorities and thousands of private customers.  Viridor manage 240 sites and facilities throughout the UK.  Their range of services include recycling collections and large scale contracting services

Viridor approached Major to design and build a tanker to be used for dust suppression and cleaning access roads, wash areas and weigh bridges.

The team at Major designed the 2200LGP Dust Tanker complete with blaster bar, water spinner and brush.  This tanker ticked all the boxes, in particular the blaster bar as Major Equipment were the only company to offer this feature.

Design Details

  • The sweeper which is fitted at the rear of the tank swivels from left to right clearing debris into the gutter
  • The dust spinner unit atomises and disperses water far more effectively than any other similar system available.  It also eliminates flooding and helps facilitate Viridor’s compliance with environmental legislation.
  • The hydraulic vacuum pump also ensures compliance with Viridor’s own Health and Safety policies.

Testimonials


The commitment to provide a clean and safe working environment for our staff and local residents is paramount. The Major Dust Suppression tanker has ticked all the boxes. Its has proved invaluable as a weapon in our constant battle to maintain dust control. The machine was fully installed on site with operator instruction to comply with our HSE obligations. If dust is your problem, we would highly recommend a Major Dust Suppression Tanker for the task..

Terry Bishop, Managing Director, The Pinden Group

We are a multi-disciplined company with a portfolio of activities including, Road Haulage, Waste Management, Plant Hire, Materials supply including Ready-mixed concrete and Recycling. We approached Major to design and manufacture a Dust Suppressor Tank incorporated into a Hydrema Dump Truck which is available for hire to our customers to control dust in the working environment and comply with environmental legislation. The design team at Major kept in touch with us at every stage of the process. We’re delighted with the finished product and would have no hesitation recommending the design services of Major.

Eamon O’Loughlin, Director at Quattro UK Ltd

After my initial enquiry to Ivor Dobson at Major Equipment to build a specialist tanker he visited our site and within days came back to me with detailed CAD drawings for a 3000 gallon tanker.  On our agreement the tanker was built.  This machine has surpassed our expectations so in 2015 we placed an order for an additional unit.  The spare parts support is excellent.  Any wear and tear parts we have needed have been received promptly from Major.

David Millings, Cargo Operations Manager, Port of Tyne

Major designed and built a 2200 Gallon Dust Suppression Tank for us. We use it for cleaning access roads - the blaster bar does a great job! We also use it for dust suppression in landfill sites and in the wheel wash area. If you are looking for a custom designed tanker backed by a professional service, I would have no hesitation in recommending Major Equipment for the job.
