EC520 is the new MACH cleaning machine dedicated to the cleaning of escalators and moving sidewalks.
Even more efficient and easier to operate, it replaced the previous EC510 as of September 2018. Improved functions, at the same price.
  • How long does it take to clean an escalator with the EC52?

    The EC520 is extremely quick. With just one machine it’s possible to sweep and wash the steps of any escalator or moving sidewalk (also known as travellator, moving walkway or horizontal escalator). Once set up on the landing plate, with the brush deck positioned on the first step, the machine works autonomously, leaving the operator free to dedicate time to other tasks. The actual cleaning time depends on a number of factors, the level of dirt, the dimensions of the escalator steps (length and width) and the number of steps.

  • Can the EC520 clean the step risers and handrail?

    The EC520’s accessory kit contains a spray gun to prewash particularly dirty steps and a tool to carefully clean the risers. The kit is already included in the TOP version of the machine, but it is also possible to order these tools as an optional with the BASE version.

  • Which brand and model of escalators and moving walkways is the EC520 compatible with?

    Thanks to the double cylindrical brush system and Edge2Edge®, technology the EC520 can be used with escalators and moving-walkways of any brand and dimension. The only limit is the minimum step width, which can’t be less than 51cm, the width of the brush deck. However, escalators with such reduced dimensions are extremely rare.

  • During the cleaning, is there a risk that water can come into contact with the internal mechanisms of the escalator?

    No, the cleaning solution applied to the steps is a fine spray. The chemical action of the detergent and the mechanical action of the brushes quickly lift even the most stubborn debris, solid or liquid, which is then immediately vacuumed. After cleaning the steps are completely dry and ready for traffic.

The EC520 cleans escalators and moving walkways using both a dry and wet cleaning cycle. It is ideal for both everyday cleaning and to remove engrained dirt and heavier marks.

The revolutionary double brush system guarantees results and once in position, the EC520 works automatically, leaving the operator free to dedicate their time to other tasks.

The new stainless-steel vacuum chamber, furthermore maximizes pick up of water, leaving the steps clean and dry.

The new solution and recovery tanks, with greater capacity, provide more cleaning time, reducing the need to stop and refill during operation and eliminating associated downtime.   

The EC520 cleans escalators and moving-walkways, of any brand, with a width of 51cm or greater. It isn’t necessary to stop the escalator to clean with the EC520, and a cleaning cycle is completed in a matter of minutes.           

Edge2Edge® technology guarantees perfect cleaning even at the edges of the steps. The brush deck, which rotates 180 degrees, is fitted with thin spacers, allowing it to be placed in direct contact with the escalator’s side panel.

Despite the multiple functions and high performance offered by the EC520, it remains a compact machine, making it easy to transport on its wheels and to be lifted via the pull-out handles.

The dry cycle, removes and vacuums small stones, dust, sand, and other small objects that can damage the internal mechanisms of an escalator.

Wet cleaning phase MACH EC520

Vaporizing a suitable detergent, it’s possible to remove marks and stuck on dirt, such as fat residues, oil, drinks, and other dirt that isn’t eliminated in the dry cycle.
