Why Hilton Vacuum’s was born…
An expensive problem costing cleaners TOO MUCH money
Andy Andersons Industrial Cleaning was facing a problem, several in fact. While they had plenty of work, the jobs were taking too long and costing too much to complete. Thousands were spent on ‘big name’ industrial vacuums, however they simply could not cope with the demands of the work. The vacuums started out fine but very quickly the fine dust would block up the filters and restrict airflow. The hassles were to painful: stopping a job to shake the filters every 10 – 20 minutes, empty the machine every 1/2 hour, or order a replacement for a burnt out motor every other week. A better solution was needed.
Finally a solution…(“necessity is the mother of invention”)
Failing to find a vacuum that was up to the job, necessity forced the crew at Andy Andersons to develop tools that would allow quicker, less costly, and less frustrating cleaning. After a number of unsuccessful attempts, finally something that worked, and worked well. What they came up with was quickly nicknamed the ‘Dust Eater’, a name given because of its ability to plough through cleaning jobs, often of up to 8 hours, without stopping once. That was 12 years ago; almost a hundred design modifications later, and thousands of hours in ‘on the job trials’, the vacuum has been refined to make it even more reliable and more powerful.
HILTON VACUUMS is born
After seeing the cleaning, hassle and time saving results of this NEW breed of vacuums, Andy Andersons customers started demanding a HILTON vacuum for themselves…
With its cyclonic action, multi-sock filter system, and specialist components, there is hardly any industrial cleaning situation that the Dust Eater cannot handle. The variety of applications by our customers is testament to how versatile the vacuum can be: sucking hot metal off a diamond grinder, extractor for concrete grinders, removing hydraulic oil out of 100 tonne shipping cranes, sucking bilge water out of BMW Oracle’s Racing Yachts and, of course, as a regular vacuum for cleaning a dusty factory. Safely and easily clean in difficult places.
Whether you’re cleaning factory rafters 20 metres up in the air or removing explosive powders in a paper mill, the Dust Eater’s performance with a long hose provides a safe and convenient alternative to lugging a vacuum around. Breweries, paper plants, and flour mills are a few of the Hilton customers who have been able to simplify once difficult and time consuming jobs. With a length of hose to suit, the tuned cyclone and the grunt of the powerful motor there are few places that you can’t safely access with a Dust Eater vacuum.
