[Johannesburg: 14 March 2019] Latest on Goscor Cleaning Equipment’s arrival yard is the T600e walk-behind floor scrubber, part of Tennant’s T600 family which delivers exceptional cleaning performance with durable design and a suite of productivity-boosting features.  

Leading industrial cleaning equipment solutions provider, Goscor Cleaning Equipment (GCE), has launched the new Tennant T600e walk-behind floor scrubber in South Africa. The first units of the model arrived in the country in the fourth quarter of 2018.

The T600e forms part of the T600 family, which also comprises the T600 and the T600EE. However, Peter Esterhuizen, National Sales Director at GCE, says only the T600e will be readily available for the South African market and the other two models will be available on demand.

GCE is targeting the BSC, industrial and warehousing sectors with the new T600e. “The T600e replaces the 5680, which was a trusted and loved unit in the industry, renowned for its robust and durable build,” says Esterhuizen.

Key features

The new T600e comes with an innovative suite of technologies and productivity-boosting features to drive cleaning performance and efficiency. The new industrial-strength scrubber offers an ideal solution for cleaning companies looking for consistent quality cleaning results they can count on even in the harshest of environments.

The scrubber promises to deliver the high-quality, high-performance advantages that have become synonymous with the Tennant name. “One of the key features is its increased versatility – customers can virtually clean any hard floor surface with a wide range of cleaning heads, including an orbital option,” says Esterhuizen.

A large-capacity 121-litre solution tank and 140-litre recovery tank allow users to scrub longer between empty and fill cycles, thus ensuring longer runtime. Operation is simplified by the easy-to-understand controls featuring variable speed control bail, propel toggle and speed setting within easy reach.

Easy maintenance is also a major design focus. “Preventative maintenance is simplified by easy-to-identify yellow maintenance touch points,” explains Esterhuizen.

Meanwhile, Tennant’s ec-H2O NanoClean® technology is also available as an option on the new T600e. It electrically converts water into an innovative, detergent-free solution that cleans effectively, saves money and reduces environmental impact compared to daily floor cleaning chemicals. The converted water is created by an on-board e-cell that generates millions of tiny microscopic bubbles known as nanobubbles that promote the cleaning efficacy of the solution.

With safety in mind, Tennant is the only company that has a listed Type EE battery-powered floor cleaning machine for use in a number of special hazardous environments.

[Johannesburg, 12 November 2018]: Leading southern African cleaning equipment supplier, Goscor Cleaning Equipment, notes that water-efficient cleaning equipment has become more sought-after, especially considering the persistent water use restrictions and permitting challenges.         

To manage a sustainable contract cleaning business, efficiency is undoubtedly one of the key pieces of the puzzle. Industrial and commercial cleaners are seeking efficiency in everything they buy, especially water-efficiency, given that it has become a very scarce natural resource, not only in South Africa, but across the world. Consequently, Gregory Venter, MD of Goscor Cleaning Equipment (GCE), reports that there is a growing demand for innovative cleaning technologies to conserve water.

Water-saving has never been this important. In recent years, water has become a pressing issue. For instance, South Africa needs to invest at least R33-billion each year for the next 10 years to ensure water security, or run the risk of dams running dry, according to the Department of Water and Sanitation. The recent drought conditions in some of the provinces in South Africa, mainly the Western and Eastern Cape regions, are clear signs that the water crisis reality is hitting home. 

“It is, therefore, imperative for water-intensive businesses to start investigating ways to reduce their consumption. At GCE, we have always been ahead of the curve when it comes to the provision of top quality water-saving cleaning technologies that can boost our customers’ profitability. For example, within our Tennant range, we have two technologies – ec-H2O NanoClean and ES (Extended Scrubbing) – that definitely set a new era in water efficiency,” explains Venter.

Leading tech

Venter notes that ‘Detergent-free’ cleaning is a big trend in the commercial cleaning sector as the professional cleaning industry continues to find ways to get the better of water woes.

For example, with Tennant’s ec-H2O NanoClean technology – which electrically converts water into an innovative, detergent-free solution that cleans effectively – customers can save money, while reducing their environmental impact compared with daily floor cleaning chemicals. “The converted water is created by an on-board e-cell that generates millions of tiny microscopic bubbles known as nanobubbles that promote the cleaning efficacy of the solution,” says Venter.

GCE also offers Tennant’s Extended Scrubbing (ES) technology, which recycles cleaning solutions through a three-stage filtering system, to extend scrubbing time. “Scrubber-dryers equipped with the ES system can recycle cleaning solutions, resulting in extended scrubbing uptime and improved productivity. This allows for scrubbing and decreased water consumption and disposal by up to 66%,” he says.

Away from Tennant, GCE also offers Kaivac’s OmniFlex Dispense-and-Vac system, which is ideal for the heaviest soil and grease conditions. It dispenses very little water with a spigot and agitating brush. Apart from being up to 60 times better at removing soil and contaminants than mopping, it also uses considerably less water than a conventional spaghetti mop, for example.

“Previously, the focus on efficiency has largely been placed on energy efficiency. While saving energy is important, conserving water is equally, if not more important. Using less water keeps money in your pocket. By utilising basic water conservation techniques, you are able to save thousands of litres of water each year. Bear in mind that the world has limited supplies of fresh water, and surely every drop counts,” concludes Venter.

[Johannesburg, 8 October 2018]: With Delfin’s range of DG EXP three-phase industrial vacuum cleaners, Goscor Cleaning Equipment (GCE) is offering a game-changing industrial vacuuming solution for all areas of application, from dust to liquid and solid material. 

The Delfin DG EXP family of industrial vacuum cleaners – the DG 30 EXP, DG 50 EXP, DG 70 EXP and DG 75 EXP – sets a new era in industrial cleaning with its three-phase vacuum prowess. Available in South Africa from leading cleaning equipment supplier, GCE, the DG EXP is ideally suited for dust, solid and liquid materials, and ranges from 2,2 to 7,5 kW.

The three-phase vacuum cleaners comprise three major components – the suction unit, filter unit and collection unit. The suction unit is a side channel blower, with direct coupling between the motor and the impeller fan. It is designed without any transmission system, and is therefore silent, totally maintenance-free and suitable for continuous duty operations. “A vacuum gauge enables constant checking of the suction performance, and detecting of possible clogging of the filter,” explains Peter Esterhuizen, National Sales Director at GCE.

The standard filter cleaning mechanism is operated by an external lever that shakes the filter vertically and enables the filter to be cleaned thoroughly and safely, maintaining constant suction performance and preventing any dispersion of dust in the environment.

“The large surface star filter, located inside the filter chamber, is made of polyester and provides high resistance against clogging and passage of fine dust. A vacuum gauge enables the operator to constantly check the state of the filter and detect possible clogging, warning the operator that the filter must be cleaned, dependent on the type and quantity of dust ,additional filtration and cleaning options are available such as self-purging cartridge filters,” says Esterhuizen.

The third crucial part of the vacuum cleaner is the collection unit (100 litres). The vacuumed material is collected into a wheeled steel detachable container, which can be extracted for easy disposal and can be used with optional disposable bags, for safer and handier disposal. “The vacuum is mounted on a sturdy steel chassis with pivoting wheels, one of which has brakes,” says Esterhuizen.

The range

With a 2,2 kW side channel blower, suction inlet diameter of 80 mm and 124 kg of weight, the DG 30 EXP finds application in almost any industry and professionals sector. Large capacity, power and robustness make it a safe investment for any enterprise. A major talking point is the maintenance-free motor suitable for 24/7 continuous duty. It can vacuum dust, liquid and solid material at the same time. It can be deployed in the food industry, aluminium and PVC, metalworking, vehicle cleaning and surface preparation.

The DG 50 EXP comes with a 4 kW side channel blower and weighs in at 137 kg. Its application range includes the food industry, aluminium and PVC, paper industry, building and construction, metalworking, vehicle cleaning and surface preparation.

Equipped with a 5,5 kW maintenance-free side channel blower, and weighing in at 146 kg, the DG 70 EXP can be deployed across several applications, including rubber, plastics, vehicle cleaning, surface preparation, textile, metalworking, building and construction, paper, aluminium and PVC, as well as the food industry.

The model DG 75 EXP sets a new era in its category, both in terms of power and performances. Weighing in at 170 kg, it comes with a 7,5 kW maintenance-free side channel blower. Its excellent suction performances combined with its compactness and high filtration efficiency, make it suitable for application in any industrial field. “Its application range includes shipyards, aviation, food industry, electronics, building and construction, rubber, leather, wood and surface preparation,” concludes Esterhuizen.

[Johannesburg, 3 October 2018]: Having taken delivery of the very first Guzzler vacuum truck in the country some five years ago, a leading coal export terminal has purchased the second unit from Goscor Cleaning Equipment, the sole supplier of the Guzzler brand in South Africa.        

Five years ago, a leading South African coal export terminal bought its first Guzzler vacuum truck from local sole supplier, Goscor Cleaning Equipment (GCE). Having experienced the benefits of this premium vacuum truck, the company has since taken delivery of its second unit, which also becomes the second unit to be ever sold in South Africa.

Gregory Venter, MD of GCE, explains that the unit will be deployed to remove spillages from coal chutes and around the facility, as well as for sludge removal from the pits. “The client has an existing unit and, having had a great experience running it for the past five years, requested for the exact same unit to match the performance of the existing one,” says Venter. “The pits where they vacuum spillages from are about 10 m deep, and the vacuum performance of the Guzzler ensures that they are able to clear up the spillages timeously and efficiently.”

In line with the client’s requirements, GCE had to ensure that the supplied unit was corrosive-proof due to the environment and the corrosive nature of the product recovered on site. “We also had to reinforce the boom to be able to handle the weight and volume the client would be vacuuming from the deep pits,” adds Venter.

With an apparent increasing demand for large vacuum trucks in the country, the Guzzler vacuum truck line represents leading technology for today’s environmental protection. Guzzler is a leading manufacturer of vacuum trucks designed to efficiently clean up industrial waste.

Guzzler vac trucks are designed to vacuum a full spectrum of materials – from solids and dry bulk powders, to liquids, slurries and thick sludge – across industrial areas such as coal terminals, cement plants, steel mills, railroads, oil refineries, chemical plants, foundries and power stations, among others. One of the key talking points on the supplied unit is the effective dust control capability offered by the 4-cyclone system. 

GCE will offer full support for the complete unit supplied to the coal terminal, in conjunction with Navistar International. “We will offer full support of the ‘back-end’ of the truck, while Navistar will service and maintain the chassis,” concludes Venter.

[Johannesburg, 2 October 2018]: Driven by its desire to maintain clean streets in communities where it operates, Goscor Cleaning Equipment recently deployed resources to help clean Johannesburg CBD streets ahead of the FNB Joburg 10K CITYRUN. 

Ahead of the FNB Joburg 10K City Run, which coincided with Heritage Day on the 24th of September, Goscor Cleaning Equipment (GCE) deployed its innovative cleaning equipment and staff to help clean the streets of Joburg on Saturday 22 September. Joining Goscor for this noble initiative were several companies that took part in the City Run.

Gregory Venter, MD of GCE, says it’s important for businesses to play an active role in communities they operate in. GCE also undertook a same initiative ahead of the FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN, which took place in May this year. The company will also embark on a same initiative ahead of the FNB Durban 10K CITYSURFRUN, scheduled for the 14th of October this year. The three races form part of the FNB Run Your City Series.

Ahead of the Joburg event, GCE cleaned the inner city streets where the race was going to be run. Starting at the FNB Bank City, the route twisted and turned through streets such as Lilian Ngoyi, Jeppe, Wanderers, Eloff, Jan Smuts, Nelson Mandela Bridge and Miriam Makeba, before finishing at the Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown.

“At Goscor we believe that business always needs to give back to society. Our team in Cape Town had such a great day out when we had the same cleaning initiative ahead of the FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN in May this year. The experience also helped them to better understand the plight of the less fortunate,” says Venter.

Venter adds that not only does street cleaning improve the aesthetics of the city, but it reduces the risk of accidents during the race. Clearing the streets of debris minimises slip and fall accidents, as well as protecting people from dangerous garbage like rusty nails and broken glass.

Venter also believes that the initiative offers a great platform for GCE to showcase the effectiveness of its range of cleaning equipment, mainly the government departments in the three city centres that the FNB Run Your City Series takes place.

Machines on duty

GCE deployed its big MACRO road sweeper. MACRO street sweepers are the most advanced and performing machines for continuous professional use currently available on the market. For years, MACRO technology has focused on four objectives: simple use, consumption reduction, low environmental impact and fast return on investment. 

“With our MACRO M60, for example, very large volumes of dry waste can be collected – 6 m³ hopper and 6 000 kg payload is the highest capacity on the market, allowing long working shifts,” explains Venter. “The machine also offers exclusive capability to sweep in unbalanced conditions like sidewalks. The system allows to sweep on bumps with no operator’s action required.”

Joining the MACRO Road sweeper was GCE’s Green Machine Litter Pickups. From downtown spaces to city parks, this popular line of Green Machines equipment is compact enough to clean almost any outdoor space. “Our Green Machines 400 Series runs with less fuel and noise thanks to its Kubota diesel engine. The machine allows you to cover more area in less time due to reduced dump cycles by compacting waste down to 33% of its original size,” says Venter.

The combined power of the 400 Series’ compaction fan, two-stage dust filtration and water dust control system, allows for trapping of virtually any dust, dirt or debris. The 400 Series’ pulverising impeller devours debris, reducing leaves and litter to one-third of its original size and broken glass to harmless particles the size of rock salt.

With the two-stage Dust Filtration, each stage takes dust out of the airflow. Inside the debris bag, nylon debris screen directs particles and debris down into a standard plastic garbage bag. The washable filter bag controls and contains the fine dust. “The spray jets located on each of the 400 series sweeping brushes and inside the suction tube provide added dust control and can be used to dispense a fragrance in the work area,” concludes Venter.

[Johannesburg, 25 July 2018]: No matter how small the action is, Mandela Day is about making a difference to change the world for the better, just as Nelson Mandela did every day. Driven by that principle, on this year’s Mandela Day, Goscor Cleaning Equipment (GCE), together with its employees, partnered Wollies animal shelter to make a difference in the lives of abandoned animals at the shelter.

Nelson Mandela’s famous words, “what counts in life is not the mere fact that we lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others” reminds us that as a nation, companies and individuals, we have to extend a loving and kind hand. It is in this spirit of Madiba and his vision to make the world a better one for all that saw GCE and its employees partner Wollies animal shelter at this year’s Mandela Day to make a difference in the lives of abandoned animals at the shelter. 

GCE employees contributed a handful of food donations towards the cause, which were handed over to the shelter on the 18th of July. According to George Jolly, Key Account Executive at GCE, in the previous years, GCE has always cleaned puppy cages at the shelter on Mandela Day and this year the company focused on food donations for the shelter.

Arnel Kaplan, Volunteer at Wollies animal shelter, commends GCE and its employees for their kindness. “Wollies animal shelter would love to thank GCE and its employees, as well as every other company and individual who donated food and accessories. The donations make an enormous difference in the lives of our animals and it is much appreciated,” she says.

Kaplan explains that on this year’s Mandela Day, Wollies animal shelter opened its doors to schools and companies that wanted to spend the day making a difference in the lives of abandoned animals at the shelter. “We gave each visitor the opportunity to create precious memories, and at the same time we made them aware of the significance of animal care,” she says.

All visitors, including representatives from GCE, were taken for a tour through the shelter and were then divided into smaller groups, with each one of them given an opportunity to take a dog for a walk and play on an obstacle course.

Reflecting on the day, Kaplan says Mandela Day is about bringing people together as a nation to spend time together doing amazing things. “Ghandi said ‘the spirit of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated’. This motto rang true at Wollies animal shelter on this year’s Mandela Day. Our animals were treated with respect and dignity and were given loads of love and attention,” says Kaplan.
