Industrial Central Vacuum System at feeds plant
BEAM designed and installed a plant-wide industrial central vacuum system for this large-scale feedstuff producer in County Monaghan.
Lakeland Agri is part of the Lakeland Dairies Co-Operative, a leading provider to the Agri Business sector throughout Ireland, UK and export markets worldwide.
At their modern plant in Lough Egish, the company produces high quality feedstuffs which have been developed through continuous innovation and offer high quality, wholesome, and nutritional product for their clients.
Adopting New Technologies
The company were keen to adopt new technologies to improve their performance and productivity and contacted Beam with a view to providing a new plant-wide Central Vacuum Cleaning System.
Beam engineers surveyed the building which extended throughout 7 storeys and following the initial site visit carried out a detailed follow up and were able to develop a plan for the vacuum system.
We identified the following objectives:
- Provide high power vacuum system for house-keeping purposes throughout large scale 7 storey production building
- Capability for multiple operators using the vacuum at the same time
- Collection of dry spillages and dust from floors and surfaces throughout
- Provide cleaning ability to mezzanine and inaccessible platforms throughout
- Provide centralised collection of waste and mechanised handling
An integrated BEAM Central Vacuum System was installed to replace multiple existing portable vacuums which were impractical for day-to-day use.
The system has been extensively used since it was installed and continually meets and surpasses the objectives which were identified at the initial appraisal stage - a welcome improvement over the previous portable vacuums that it has replaced.
Plant Operations Manager Peadar McKiernan commented:
Our experience dealing with Beam Vacuum Systems has been very good. From their initial site survey right through to the installation, their staff have been knowledgeable and professional. Their engineers carried out the installation to a high standard of workmanship and safety, and completed within the agreed schedule, all of which are important to our business.
We are very satisfied with the performance of the vacuum system and find that our staff are benefitting from it in our day-to-day operations. As the system can accommodate multiple users we have recently invested in extending it, and overall it has proved to be very flexible, reliable and a worthwhile addition to our production facility.
