Morclean were recently contacted by Mr Alan Sandham of the Southern Fish Industry Training Association Ltd (SFITA) Part of the SFITA’s Training involves sea survival courses using LIfe Rafts. So how could Morclean help?
Mr Alan Sandham of SFITA said that during a sea survival course, a Life Raft has to be inflated quickly – and they required a machine to do this. So, Morclean supplied a Model ‘N’ series vacuum cleaner with a special external vent with a hose attached – thus using the vacuum cleaner as an air pump instead.
Mr Alan Sandham said the Association was set up as a non-profit making organisation in 1981 to provide safety training for the seagoing sector of the industry in Dorset and Hampshire. Since then, the Association has widened it’s area of operations to cover the whole of the south east, from Lyme Regis to the Medway. In 1988, the SFITA increased their industry coverage in order to assist the onshore sectors, and now provide direct training and assistance to all sectors of the industry.
Morclean specialise in bespoke supply of both cleaning equipment and tailor made cleaning solutions, and were pleased to help with this project – however unusual. The Morclean range of wet and dry vacuum cleaners are available in various options of power with 240 and 110 volt motors ranging up to 3000w, and capacities from 9trs to 200ltrs.
