- Location: Florida
- Machine: Waste Truck
- Test Period: 1 year
- Environment: Mix of city streets and debris-laden landfill
- Results: 4.5x Filter Life Extension
Before Precleaner installation, filters were changed 9 times per year based upon observation of filter condition. Annual cost* for parts and labor: $450 per machine.
After Precleaner installation, filters were changed twice per year. Annual cost* for parts and labor: $100 per machine.
Savings over 1 year of operation: $350*
After this study, all trucks were equipped with Sy-Klone Series 9000 precleaners, resulting in enormous savings when calculated for the entire fleet.
*Costs: Filters $30 each, Labor $30 per hour
