VAC-U-MAX introduces latest compressed-air powered vacuum system for fine powders and combustible dusts

August 16, 2017

VAC-U-MAX, located in Belleville, New Jersey, USA, has announced the latest addition to its industrial vacuum cleaning range for combustible dusts. The new MDL15 Air-Vac features the exclusive VAC-U-MAX Venturi power unit, said to offer the lowest compressed-air consumption on the market today.

The system features a 15-gallon (68 litre) collection drum, and with no electrical components or moving parts, the MDL15 is said to be ideal for high volume recovery of fine powders and combustible dusts.
The MDL15 features manual blow-back filter cleaning with static-conductive PTFE pre-filter and secondary cartridge filter, and static-conductive casters. Dust, debris, and fine powders are collected in off-the-shelf static-conductive polybags, eliminating the common issue of a ‘mushroom cloud’ that comes with drum dumping.

Standard construction includes anti-sparking stainless steel in 304 SS or 316 SS bead-blast finish. The MDL15 is equipped with a static-conductive compressed-air hose, ATEX-certified vacuum hose, and complete cleaning tool kit assembly for floors, walls, machinery and overhead cleaning.
