Cyclone for Japan's Highways

Early 2015, the first Cyclone CY5000 cleaning system was delivered to one of the major highway maintenance companies in Japan, Central Japan Highway Maintenance. This is the first CY5000 sold specifically for highway cleaning and maintenance.

Nilfisk Cyclone, the leading technology for hard surface cleaning, has the ability to design cleaning systems to meet any hard surface cleaning demand.  With strong support from Cyclone Technology, Nilfisk Japan was able to increase water pump output pressure and heat in order to meet the unique specifications required by the dealer, Yamamoto Rock Machine, which enables the cleaning technique known as “Hot Water Cavitation”.

The machine will be used mainly for cleaning oil and fuel leaks caused by traffic accidents, cleaning permeable paving, and cleaning pavement in other service areas. The maintenance company is also excited for opportunities to use the Cyclone cleaning system in numerous municipal applications.

If it performs well in the test phase, Cyclone Technology expects to receive more orders to cover larger geographic areas of the Japanese highway system.  Though it is still Nilfisk’s major task to help reduce radiation levels in Fukushima to recover from the tragedy, this new application will give Nilfisk Japan opportunities to continue the Cyclone business long after the decontamination is completed.
