Equipped as follows:

  • 2" Inlet Port w/ 2" Hose Reducer Cuff
  • 1.5" x 10' Static Dissipating Hose
  • 1.5" x 27" (2 pcs.) Stainless Steel Wands
  • 1.5" x 12" Floor Brush with Conductive Bristles
  • 1.5" x 11" Crevice Tool
  • 1" x 6" Dusting Hand Tool
  • 1" Conical Angle Brush with Conductive Bristles
  • Conductive Polyester Filter Collection Bags (3)

  • 15 Amp 120 Volt Ground Plug.

From ultra fine powders to general debris to even moist debris, 100% of the extracted debris is conveniently collected, sealed and contained in the disposal filter collection bags, which are made of a non-blinding conductive polyester filter media.  HEPA filtration includes a washable main cloth filter and pre-filter.

Legally Certified Dust Ignition Protected to the Following Standard:  Class II - Division 2, Groups F & G Locations.

Explanation of Standard [Class II, Division 2]:  A combustible dust location is present due to abnormal dust accumulation during daily operations or when dust accumulations are not sufficient to interfere with the normal operations of electrical equipment.

For example:  A shooting range may be considered a Division II location.  When the guns are fired, most (if not all) of the gunpowder is spent.  While there may be some small quantities of unspent gunpowder accumulation on the floor or in the air, it would fall under Division II.

Combustible Dust - "A Very Real Threat to Your Facility."

OSHA estimates that over 30,000 U.S. facilities, in all types of industries, are at risk everyday for a major combustible dust explosion.  The threat of an industrial explosion in your facility is very real.

Combustible dust can explode like gunpowder.  If you let it build up it could blow you way . . . 

And while you may not think of it as an explosive hazard, don't underestimate its potentially devastating consequences . . .

Aftermath of a combustible dust explosion at an acoustical tile plant.

For this reason OSHA recommends - and in some steps requires - that manufacturers use a Certified Explosion Proof Vacuum as part of their Regular Plant Maintenance or Housekeeping Program.

Understanding the Threat of a Combustible Dust Explosion - What Model is Right for You?

OSHA & Combustible Dust Enforcement.  What OSHA looks for?  OSHA's definition of combustible dust.  Is venting of combustible dust enough?  Improper Housekeeping - Is combustible dust present in my company?  Are you doing enough?  If dust accumulations cover 1/32 of an inch on 5% of the floor, then "yes" - combustible dust is in your company.

National Electric Code (NEC) Classifications:  Definitions of Hazardous Locations, Substances (types of dust), Groups & Divisions (of dust).  What type of Explosion Proof Vacuum do you need?

OSHA Combustible Dust Poster."Combustible Dust Poster".  The processing of creating dust during a manufacturing or cleaning process creates conditions for a potential combustible dust explosion.  There are different kinds of dust so it is important to recognize what type of dust is found in your facility and whether it is listed as a combustible dust as defined by OSHA.  Some require more serious management than others.  For a complete list of those materials, click on the poster provided by OSHA (above).

OSHA Combustible Dust Directive CPL 03-00-008 / Emphasis Program.  OSHA's policy and procedures for inspecting a workplace pertaining to the creation and handling of combustible dusts.

 

 

What ignites combustible dust?

Powder dust, laying on pipes in a manufacturing company.

What Causes a Combustible Dust Explosion?

There is a risk of explosion when any five of the fire and explosion elements are present:  fuel, oxygen, an ignition source (such as fire or electricity), dust in a cloud, confinement of that dust cloud (such as in a room or vessel.)

If you can eliminate the dust, you can eliminate the explosion hazard . . .

During plant maintenance, the traditional practice of sweeping or blowing will actually increase your chance of a combustible dust explosion.

 

 

Best practice of preventing a combustible dust explosion.What Are Some Ways to Reduce the Effects Should an Explosion Occur?  Installing ventilation, using pressure-relief venting on equipment, using spark/ember detection and extinguishing systems, using explosion protection systems, sprinkler systems, and other specialized suppression systems.

One of the best, easiest and more cost effective ways to prevent a combustible dust explosion is to use a specialized or non-conductive, 100% grounded, industrial vacuum.  However, in many cases, the vacuum itself could be the igniter (with its electrical motor, on/off switch, metal parts) that actually causes the explosion by producing a spark (electrical or static).

Simply put, when it comes to safe plant maintenance, not just any vacuum will do . . .
