ATEX Certified Air-Operated Industrial Vacuums Cleaners for Flammable Liquid cleanup. The VAC-U-MAX FR Series are Flammable Liquid Vacuums designed for the safe recovery of gasoline, diesel fuel, JP-4, JP-5 and JP-8 jet fuels, solid materials and non-combustible liquids.
VAC-U-MAX Industrial Vacuum Cleaners meet NFPA 77 requirements for grounding and bonding - meeting the definition of an “intrinsically-safe system”.
"Intrinsically-safe" systems are designed to be unable to release thermal or electrical energy which can cause ignition of flammable materials (liquids or combustible dust). Explosion sources include electrical sparks and arcs, flames, hot surfaces, static, electromagnetic radiation, and chemical reactions. Intrinsic safety is covered under OSHA Regulations (Standards - 29 CFR), hazardous (classified) locations 1910.307 and 1926.407. VAC-U-MAX Combustible Dust Air-Vacs are all "Intrinsically Safe", that being they are air-powered, do not use electricity, and do not generate any heat from operation.
What is ATEX? ATEX or “Atmosphères Explosibles” is a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) providing a set of directives and standards as set by the EU for controlling explosive atmospheres with the goal of improving the health, safety and protection of workers.
These VAC-U-MAX Industrial air-operated vacuums are a “system” and include the vacuum cover, drum, dolly, vacuum hose and cleaning tools, compressed air hose with quick-disconnect fittings, and polybag drum liners. There are no components that are supplied by the customer and we are therefore able to offer a suitable-for-service certification in a Class II, Division 2 environment.
