Nash Industrial add another DISAB unit to their fleet

Contract cleaning services firm takes delivery of a second, larger-capacity Centurion vacloader

Nash Industrial Services, the Buxton-based industrial and contract cleaning services company, have acquired a new DISAB Centurion vacloader in addition to their existing fleet of specialist waste-removal vehicles.

The Centurion vacloader range is made in Sweden by the DISAB Group, the European market leader in applied vacuum technology for industry, and represents the most powerful mobile application the Group offers.

The full range extends to smaller compact machines used extensively for industrial housekeeping and dust/waste removal, and centralized vacuum systems for buildings housing manufacturing, processing or storage facilities, aggregate screening houses and asphalt plants.

Nash’s £350,000 investment in the DISAB Centurion LN200/9-1817 ST was based on the proven track record of their existing DISAB unit, the only difference being that a vacloader with a larger capacity was felt to be essential.

A lot of the work undertaken by Nash Industrial is for the local and regional quarrying, aggregates and cement companies, and with Tarmac and Lafarge among their major customers, managing director Steve Nash is keen to make sure that his company is well placed to provide and deliver the most effective equipment and materials-handling solutions.

‘We’ve grown pretty quickly since we started some six years ago, and I’m keen to make sure we continue to offer a top-notch service with a competitive edge,’ he said. ‘With a DISAB vacloader we can do that, especially for the type of customers we’re dealing with in this part of the world, running quarries, aggregates and cement plant.

‘The DISAB vacloader’s design incorporates a 9-litre Caterpillar donkey engine running on red diesel legally, which means both our operatives can focus on the task in hand instead of having one in the cab as in those units that take the power from the truck’s own engine.

‘Silo cleaning at cement plants is a major part of our work, and we need a DISAB in conjunction with some other specialist equipment to deal with the large volumes of waste material in the silos quickly and safely. But the best thing about the DISABs is that we can tackle almost any kind of material in virtually any kind of containment that allows suitable accessibility.

‘The pulling power of the DISAB means we can shift wet and dry material of almost any size, from the very fine powders to large stones, and anything in between, and can do so in significantly less time than it takes other less capable or powerful machines.’

Mr Nash added: ‘Another key factor in the buying decision was our experience of dealing with the DISAB Group, their training, and their ability to supply spare parts and service and support within the UK from their Service Centre in the North West. This minimizes any potential downtime for us and our customers.’
