Vacuum design helps reduce operator exposure to harmful dusts

VAC-U-MAX’s new continuous-duty industrial vacuums are equipped with a continuous bagging system that eliminates dumping of a drum. The closed bags prevent dust clouds and avoid a potential cause of back injuries. The filter cleaning system eliminates the need for compressed air and solenoid controls, allowing the filters to collect the finest powders anywhere in the plant. The vacuums are also equipped with a 50 sq. ft. PTFE-coated primary filter, a standard HEPA secondary filter and easy-rolling 6-in.-diameter wheels. The vacuums are suitable for unclassified and Class II, Div 2 rated environments. For more information, visit or call 1-800-822-8629.
