The SWINGOBOT test impressed BEST with its ability to operate hands-free while staff continued to clean in other areas of the building. It also showed impressive signs of reduced water and chemical use compared to the standard floor cleaning equipment being used and was more energy efficient. “The TASKI SWINGOBOT showed immediate advantages with the recycling of water, allowing shifts to run on one tank where previously, the cleaning staff had to dump and fill multiple times per shift,” said Bratland. “It took about 15 minutes to dump and fill (three to four times on a shift), which meant up to an hour of time was being wasted. Plus, we were using more chemicals,” he added. The recycle capability of the SWINGOBOT can generate up to 85 percent chemical and water savings each shift.
The TASKI Intellibot used at SAIT was the first SWINGOBOT robotic machine used in Western Canada and is one of Diversey’s top three performing robots worldwide. Consistent performance in 2017 has ranked the SAIT machine as the top performing robot in the world on numerous occasions. Diversey reports that the unit runs six hours per night, including changing the battery which improves the return on investment. The nightly routine includes performing runs to clean four floors; each floor taking approximately an hour and a half and the basement 40 minutes.
