Two whales in Europe’s biggest quarry

For the ninth time now, FRUTIGER Company AG presented itself as an exhibitor at steinexpo. This year FRUTIGER showcased a fully galvanized MobyDick TailorMade unit with a length of 9.39 m. It effects intensive washing of the wheels and chassis of construction machines during three revolutions of the wheels, reliably cleaning even heavily soiled tyres. Thanks to the rugged and high-quality workmanship, this type of washing unit can be operated for many years with very low running costs, and with the individual modifications to meet customer requirements presents a perfect solution for all stationary operations. In addition to this, FRUTIGER also supplies the ConLine. These drive-through units impress with their modular design, as this enables the easy conversion of one model into another model variation. A ConLine unit with conversion package can be retrofitted at any time for operation at a completely different working site.

Also presented for the first time at a trade fair under the MobyDick brand was a dust control canon developed in cooperation with Savic Engineering, to effectively fight dust pollution in the air (Fig.). Savic Engineering is a Belgium-based manufacturer of a wide range of dust control systems installed worldwide under its Spraystream brand. The company specializes in customized solutions. In future the two companies want to use synergies in the production of wheel washing systems and dust control canons. The combined expertise of these two leading manufacturers met with lively interest from a broad range of customers at steinexpo.
