Drum Vac features two independent bypass motors, fits 30- and 55-gallon drums

When plant managers and operators asked Nilfisk-Advance America for a cost efficient, easy-to-use drum vacuum, engineers immediately went to work. The end result is the Nilfisk GWD 255 Drum Vac.

Designed to meet the general plant cleaning and maintenance needs of food manufacturers, the GWD 255 is powered by two independent bypass motors and can fit both 30- and 55-gallon drums, allowing users to recycle drums that are abundant in nearly every production plant. An optional float chamber and washable cartridge filter allows the GWD 255 to pick up both wet and dry materials, and the machine can also be fitted with an upstream HEPA filter for pick-up of hazardous materials, ensuring 99.97% of particles are retained, down to and including 0.3 microns in size.

Additional features of the GWD 255 Drum Vac include a 50-ft yellow cord for assured safety and washable main filter sack. The unit can also be combined with Nilfisk’s comprehensive line of accessories, including those for overhead cleaning, in order to create the ultimate cleaning solution for the food industry.
