ECCC supplies a superior service through the introduction of a unique, purpose designed automatic escalator scrubber. The machine has been manufactured specifically for thorough and comprehensive cleaning of escalators.
The machine cleans by doing what no other machine can do – it is fitted onto the stationary escalator, sprays a measured, minimal amount of chemical solution onto the step and riser, which is then agitated onto the surfaces by brushes too soft to cause any damage to either the aluminum, or anodized and painted surfaces of the escalator steps. The chemical has been specifically formulated for use on all types of escalators.
Dirt is removed by chemical action combined with gentle and effective friction, as the brushes serve to transport the dirt onto a collecting tray from where it is removed by vacuum to a holding tank. The escalator surface is left clean and dry with no risk of contamination to lubricating oils in escalator drums or damage to electrical circuits.
During the cleaning process the machine operator and his assistant removes all embedded foreign matter; which could damage the escalator combs and steps.
An important aspect of this cleaning process is that all sand, dirt and spillage which would normally have combined with oil and grease to form a grinding paste in the escalator mechanism, are completely removed.
