Spinflector’s Reflector Cleaner
BY AsphaltPro Staff
When driving around the quarry, mine or mountainous stockpile yard beyond the plant, workers need clear delineation for both safety and efficient operation. Trampas Cutler, founding director of Spinflector Industries, Port Lincoln, South Australia, developed the Spinflector device to clean vertical reflectors on delineator posts around these sites to help maintain visibility for machinery operators.
Here’s how it works.
Personnel place the shaft of the Spinflector over the 50-mm PVC delineator post with the “fan” of the Spinflector atop the post.
When a gust of wind rushes past the post, the built-in wind vane turns atop the post. This causes the series of vertical brushes to rotate around the reflector.
As the brushes turn around the post, they clean dust and grime from the reflectors.
“Even on fairly calm days, you’re going to have the odd gust of wind, and it only really needs to rotate about half a dozen times in a 48-hour period to take the layer of dust off and be effective,” Cutler explained. “It just doesn’t allow the build-up of dirt.”
