||Mathieu Yno of France, a manufacturer of
compact, motorised street sweepers, has launched the GRAND
AZURA and AZURA CONCEPT street sweepers. The GRAND AZURA
is the first multi-purpose and fast-driving compact street
sweeper, whereas the AZURA CONCEPT offers a multi-dimensional
sweeping system in a very compact vehicle.
Both models combine technical performance with design quality,
while complying with the strictest environmental standards.
The GRAND AZURA has a patented hanging-suction turbine with
an airflow of 14,000m³/h, as well as a multi-adjustable sweeping
system with an integrated search device. A large-diameter
suction tube (250mm) completes the system. Its optimised empty
weight of 4.6 tonnes gives it a payload of 5.4 tonnes. The
composite fibres used during construction, increase the robustness
of the street sweeper. Using a system for the rapid fitting
/ removal of its tank, GRAND AZURA can be used as a street
sweeper, road washer or even as a salt spreader.
The GRAND AZURA is highly suitable for use on roads – its
travelling speed can be adjusted to 40 or 80km/h. Its two
or four-wheel steering (which does not project to the rear)
and its dimensions (length 4,600mm x width 1,600mm) enable
it to work in the narrowest places. It also has a European
Union road certification.
GRAND AZURA satisfies environmental requirements, as it conforms
to EU standards concerning the emission of particles and gaseous
pollutants. It also meets customers’ design requirements,
with its style inspired by the automotive industry. Finally,
it complies with noise-reduction requirements, through the
use of appropriate materials.
The AZURA CONCEPT - the latest in the company’s range - draws
on the 10 years of experience that Mathieu Yno has in the
field. Its design took two years to finalise and is the result
of a close partnership between a product-approval advisor
and a car design consultancy. It has a multi-dimensional sweeping
system with brushes that may be adjusted independently of
each other for forward or reverse sweeping, which is both
practical and effective. Its suction power is equal to that
of a high-capacity vehicle, at 13,000m³/h. It is a very compact
vehicle (length 3,900mm x width 1,230mm) and can clean the
most confined spaces.
The AZURA CONCEPT’s road-holding qualities stem from years
of automotive research. The manufacturers of the vehicle’s
security components (particularly the brakes and suspension)
have validated the fitting and the performance of these elements
on the AZURA CONCEPT. Its spacious cabin enables on-the-spot
visual monitoring of the work being carried out.
Like the GRAND AZURA, the AZURA CONCEPT street sweeper complies
with the strictest regulations concerning the releasing of
particles and greenhouse gases. Its low noise level is due
to advanced acoustics and design studies. It fits in well
with urban traffic flows thanks to its smooth design, following
a long series of performance and endurance tests.
