Federal Signal Corp. recently launched a website dedicated to cleaning and sanitizing efforts in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

New content and information, including sanitizing tips, protocol recommendations, additional equipment demonstrations, and relevant industry news, will be added to the website on an ongoing basis. Visitors are encouraged to check the site frequently for updates or click on “Contact Us” to submit specific questions or feedback.

The purpose of the website is to remind new and existing customers, dealers, and end users that the installed base of products manufactured by Federal Signal’s Environmental Solutions Group can be used to clean and sanitize outdoor public areas, such as recreational spaces, parks and museums. These products can also be used to sanitize other vehicles, like buses or railcars, as well as clean bridges, train stations and any other outdoor area. Products include:

The Vactor 2100i combination sewer cleaner incorporates liquid storage and a liquid pumping system that can safely provide pressurized liquid flows to single or multiple hand-held devices or fixed nozzles for sanitizing everything from shopping carts and buses, to bridges, railcars, and train stations.

  • Vactor truck-mounted sewer cleaners that combine a vacuum system with large liquid storage and liquid pumping capability. Vactor machines feature an exclusive multiflow capability that can safely provide pressurized liquid flows to single or multiple hand-held devices or fixed nozzles at pressures up to 2,500 psi and flows up to 100 gpm. These sewer cleaners store up to 1,000 feet of large-diameter hose, allowing them to conduct liquids to remote or hard-to-reach areas like subway or elevated platforms or behind large structures. In addition, the on-board hydraulic systems can be used to power other tools.
  • TRUVAC truck-mounted vacuum excavators that combine a vacuum system with large liquid storage and liquid pumping capability. TRUVAC machines feature variable liquid flow capability that can safely provide pressurized liquid flows to single or multiple hand-held devices or fixed nozzles at pressures up to 3,000 psi and flows up to 25 gpm. These vacuum excavators normally incorporate the ability to heat the liquid to temperatures nearing 200 degrees F. In addition, the on-board hydraulic systems can be used to power other tools.
To help mitigate the community transmission of COVID-19, Elgin Sweeper’s Whirlwind1 single-engine vacuum sweeper can clean streets by providing low-pressure liquid flows to multiple nozzles while the machine is moving at any speed.

  • Elgin Sweeper truck-mounted street sweepers with liquid storage and liquid pumping capability. These sweepers feature flow capability to provide low-pressure liquid flows to multiple nozzles and can do so while the machine is moving at any speed. Many Elgin Sweeper models also incorporate vacuum systems to collect materials. In addition, the on-board hydraulic systems can be used to power other tools.
  • Jetstream trailer-mounted, self-powered liquid pumps that incorporate liquid storage. Jetstream pumps feature variable liquid flow capability that can safely provide pressurized liquid flows to single or multiple hand-held devices or fixed nozzles at flows up to 50 gpm or more. Being self-powered, they can be towed while pumping on or off the road.

“Our products move material, clean infrastructure and protect the communities where we work and live, uniquely positioning them to help mitigate the community transmission of COVID-19,” says Jennifer Sherman, Federal Signal president and CEO. “In these uncertain times, protecting the safety and wellbeing of the public is more important than ever. We stand ready to help new and existing customers; federal, state and local authorities; and the broader community in any way that we can.”
