Industrial Pneumatic Vacuums for Metal Manufacturing
HafcoVac certified industrial vacuums make keeping your work environment housekeeping simple and easy. The HafcoVac line of industrial vacuum cleaners are a perfect choice for the recovery of metal dust and metal powders. The performance, cost and a lifetime warranty all make HafcoVac your best choice.
HafcoVac uses several NFPA standards as a guide to the design and production of our vacuums including NFPA 484 which establishes standards for combustible metals. These include alkali metals, aluminum, hafnium, magnesium, niobium, tantalum, and zirconium. This particular guideline also addresses the production, processing, finishing, handling, storage, use, and recycling of all metals and alloys that are in a form capable of combustion or explosion. Metal dusts are generated as metal oxides and reduced metals are crushed and also when metal powders and additives are mixed. These dusts can separate and concentrate in different types of equipment which can include operations like hopper filling, blending and/or blending discharge, and compaction. This dust that is generated can also get carried away to other areas as a result of airflow in the work environment creating hazardous issues in another area.
HafcoVacs use no moving parts and no electric motor. That means no motor burnout and no electric shortages, ever. Work quickly and efficiently with Hafco’s pneumatic vacuum design. Units are also fully grounded for your safety.
All HafcoVacs are designed to comply with OSHA and NFPA regulations for metal dust, shavings and clippings safety. NFPA Class I Division 2 Group E. OSHA -Certified for Class 1, 2, 3, Division 1 and 2, Groups A, B, C, D, Zone 1 and 21 E, F, G.
To clean up metal dust may necessitate a combustible dust explosion proof vacuum in a Class II, Group E hazardous location such as a HafcoVac with no electricity needed.
Since metal dust and metal pieces are conductive and sometimes flammable, Hafco recommends the use of a certified vacuum. Hafco currently offers ATEX EX Series Vacuums, superior industrial pneumatic vacuums that minimize added risk in combustible and flammable environments. The ATEX EX Series is the most ordered product from Machine Shop Customers.
