Explosion-proof vacuum collects hazardous materials
New CFM A17 EXP is an explosion-proof vacuum that meets UL Standard 1017, and is designed to safely collect and retain potentially explosive materials – including powders, gasses, vapors, liquids, and dust – especially in hazardous areas. Constructed entirely of stainless steel and aluminum to eliminate percussion arcs, the vacuum collects materials without sparking, reducing the threat of explosion and fire. To further protect workers, it is powered by compressed air and has built-in anti-static features including: a static grounding wire; anti-static wheels mounted on rigid and swiveling castors for easy maneuverability; and an anti-static filter with 21 square feet of surface area that guarantees high filtration efficiency and prevents premature clogging.
