Vac-U-Max MDL15 Combustible Dust Air Vac Runs On Compressed Air
Vac-U-Max introduces the newest addition to its industrial vacuum cleaning product range for combustible dusts, the MDL15. The MDL15 Combustible Dust Air-Vac features the exclusive Vac-U-Max Venturi power unit, which offers low compressed air consumption. System features a 15-gallon collection drum. With no expensive electrical components or moving parts, the MDL15 is suited for high volume recovery of fine powders and combustible dusts, making it an intrinsically safe system.
The MDL15 features manual blow-back filter cleaning with static-conductive PTFE pre-filter and secondary cartridge filter and static-conductive casters. Dust, debris and fine powders are collected in “off-the-shelf” static-conductive polybags, eliminating “the mushroom cloud” that comes with drum dumping. Standard construction includes anti-sparking stainless steel in 304SS or 316SS bead-blast finish and is suitable for food environments. The MDL15 is equipped with a static-conductive compressed-air hose, ATEX-certified vacuum hose and complete cleaning tool kit assembly for floors, walls, machinery and overhead cleaning.
The Single-Venturi Power Unit offers maximum suction power at 16” Hg (208” H20), with maximum air flow of 100 SCFM, requiring 35 SCFM @ 60 PSI. Suction connection is 1.5” in diameter, with compressed-air connection at ½” NPT (female). Noise levels are below 79 DBA @ 8" Hg. Bonding and grounding requirements meet NFPA 77-2007 "Recommended Practice on Static Electricity."
Typical industrial vacuum cleaning applications for the MDL15 include high volume clean-up of powders and combustible dusts from floors, walls, machinery and overhead surfaces typically found in the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and general manufacturing industries. The MDL15 is suitable for Class II, Division 2 environments.
