Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0881456A2] The system is used for cleaning the sand trap at a shooting range. A mobile assembly is brought into place and the sand or other material to take the shot is transferred by suction in a closed system for intermediate storage. The granular material and the spent bullets are separated, and the cleaned sand is blown back. An assembly may be used with a vehicle which carries a suction or blower fan (5) to move the sand granules (3) into and out of a closed collection chamber (2). The system is fitted with the appropriate suction or blowing channels (4) and a control.
