Cleaning efficiency improved at Bayer Crop Science

Bayer Crop Science is a leading international supplier of products and expertise for the  production of food and fibre crops within Australia and New Zealand. This includes research and development in the areas of chemistry, biotechnology and seeds in the agriculture industry.

As part of the Crop Science division of Bayer, they conduct research and development of a large variety of seeds and grains for the Australian growing environment. As they are dealing with large quantities of different varieties of seeds constantly, minimisation of cross contamination and grain hygiene is an integral part of their operations.

To improve grain hygiene and maintain their high standards of seed development and testing, they acquired two Big Brute Warehouseman Industrial Vacuum Cleaners for their Mount Gambier, South Australia seed operations site.

Big Brute Warehouseman Industrial Vacuum CleanerThe Big Brute Warehouseman Industrial Vacuum Cleaner includes the all steel 710mm wide front Warehouseman Floor Brush. The Warehouseman Floor Brush is ideal for cleaning up any spilt seed or chaff/fine dust from large concrete floor areas. Using the Warehouseman Floor Brush allows a single person to clean large areas quickly.


In addition to the 710mm wide Warehouseman Floor Brush, the Big Brute Warehouseman Industrial Vacuum Cleaner also comes with our V32 15 meter length of suction hose. Having a much larger inside diameter of 63mm, this allows for larger volumes and also sizes of material to be cleaned up much quicker with the Big Brute Industrial Vacuum Cleaners.

For cleaning underneath conveyor belting, up along walls and around tight spaces they also acquired our Floor, Wall & Ceiling Toolkit. Using the Floor, Wall & Ceiling Toolkit allows for an entire worksite to be cleaned from the floors, along the walls and also up to the ceilings with the same Big Brute Industrial Vacuum Cleaner.

 An online video demonstration of the Floor, Wall & Ceiling Toolkit can be viewed here.


When larger grain spillages have occurred, they also have the flexibility of using the Conversion to a Big Brute Suck & Dump Trolley. The conical shaped Big Brute Suck & Dump trolley allows for larger quantities of material to be emptied with a forklift. With inbuilt forklift tyne slots, the Suck & Dump allows for the Big Brute Industrial Vacuum Cleaner to be emptied instantly with a pull of the trap door lever. This allows for your Big Brute to be emptied directly into a hopper or discharge point so cross contamination of seed doesn't occur.
