Liberty Industries Introduces Bull Dog Shoe Cleaning System
EAST BERLIN, CT/August 12, 2002 - Liberty Industries, Inc., a leader in cleaning and cleanroom technologies, has recently introduced the Bull Dog shoe cleaning system for industrial environments. The Bull Dog(TM) 351 is designed to clean large boots and shoes at entrances to offices, warehouses, etc. as employees and visitors enter from the outside or from a dirty work area. The system combines the company's Bull Dog shoe brush machine and its Tacky Mat®, each sheet of which has a strong adhesive coating that removes dirt on contact. The Bull Dog features push-button operation with a 1/6 horsepower, 115v/60hz single-phase motor. To collect dirt from the unit, the system requires a specially selected wet/dry vacuum (that can be purchased separately from the company) or central vacuum system. The unit is commonly offered with the Tiger-Vac®, a HEPA-filtered vacuum manufactured by Tiger-Vac International, Inc. Protected by a 15-amp breaker, the Bull Dog's total power requirement is 12.4 amps, including the vacuum attachment. The shafts of the Bull Dog are constructed of carbon steel electroless nickel-plated design to reduce corrosion. Though it can be used for wet/dry applications, the stainless steel unit is for indoor use only. Rotating heavy-duty, non-abrasive brushes handle all types of dirt including mud, leaves, grass clippings, slush or sand. This makes the Bull Dog ideal for construction sites, building lobbies, gowning rooms, anteroom and production areas, and plant cleanrooms. According to Liberty representatives, when used properly, the Bull Dog can help reduce annual maintenance costs for facilities with high traffic areas where dirt is a concern, enabling users to protect expensive floors and carpets from damage. The company is making its Tacky Mats available as an add-on feature to accompany the Bull Dog-unit. Each Tacky Mat consists of 30 disposable sheets, with different grades of tack available. The polyethylene sheets are non-allergenic, non-odorous, and non-drying. Mats can be ordered 30 or 60 sheets per mat, and are shipped in 120 or 240 sheets per case. Founded in 1953, Liberty Industries, Inc. is a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of cleanrooms, laminar flow devices, cleanroom accessories, and other cleaning supplies. Liberty's original products - The Shoe Brush machines and Tacky Mats - remain a mainstay in the cleanroom industry, and the company continues to maintain a leadership position in the development of new products that promote total cleaning solutions for industrial applications.
