In many commercial industries, dust explosions caused by the intersection of flammable dust and electric components in vacuums in a huge safety concern. These explosions can range from startling to deadly, and everybody who works in or owns a commercial space where these might occur should be heavily invested in preventing them at all costs.
Explosions caused by flammable dust particles such as those found in a variety of different commercial buildings are only able to happen when there is a concentration of substances that are combustible, combined with open-air and an ignition source. Electric vacuums have motors and moving parts that are able to create sparking, friction, and arcing. These factors make them an extremely dangerous choice for cleaning around combustible substances, even in the smallest amounts.
Thankfully, HafcoVac has provided the perfect solution in the form of explosion-proof, industrial vacuum cleaners. These vacuums are made from material that is bonded together in such a way that no single part is isolated and without a path to the ground. Powered by compressed air, HafcoVac explosion-proof vacuums are completely immune to static buildup, electric sparking, and any other conditions that might lead to a catastrophic dust explosion in the workspace.
HafcoVac Offers Plenty of Choices
