The Technology Behind Street Sweeping

Street sweeper technology has evolved throughout the years, with advancements in fleet and a higher demand in locations.

Some of the key factors that determine which streets are swept include high traffic volume, residential demand, commercial areas, central business districts, and proximity to environmentally sensitive areas.

Our team of experts want you to better understand the different types of advanced equipment we use to get the job done in a safe and timely manner.

Mechanical Broom Sweepers

Mechanical Broom Sweepers

Ideal for harsh road conditions, mechanical broom sweepers are used for tackling construction debris and granular materials like millings, gravel, and heavy build-up after flooding. They are the most common type of sweeper in the U.S. and do not exceed speeds of 20 mph.

Regenerative Air Sweepers

The Reilly Sweeping team takes advantage of this type of sweeping equipment for picking up tough street debris, such as heavy dirt, rocks, sand, leaves, and trash. Regenerative air sweepers are typically used for municipal applications on streets, parking lots, and alleyways.

Pure Vacuum Sweepers

Typically resulting in up to 99% removal of all particles, this equipment is essentially a giant vacuum cleaner and is ideal for street gutter cleaning. It operates well on rough roadways, especially those with pot-holes.
