THE 3 RIGHT STEPS TO CHOOSE THE PROPER INDUSTRIAL VACUUM CLEANER

 

It doesn’t seem too hard to choose the proper industrial vacuum cleaner, does it?

We always believe that we only need a machine to suck material, something powerful with a remarkable container capacity and a long-lasting autonomy, just like buying a vacuum for one’s home.

Actually, an industrial vacuum cleaner will give you far more than a simple home vacuum cleaner, but it has to be chosen wisely.

Before purchasing, be sure of the proper model and question:

  • What is the purpose of the industrial vacuum system? What is its application? Which material am I going to suck? 
  • Is my plant surrounded by a special environment? Is there any specific requirement for the equipment?

 

Buying the most suitable industrial vacuum cleaner is an important investment for your activity. Indeed, it will considerably increase your production line, by making it safer and more performant.

THE FIRST AND THE MOST IMPORTANT ANALYSIS/EVALUATION IS ON THE MATERIAL TO BE SUCKED.

Basically, it is possible to classify all dust and materials into four categories:

  • dust and fine powders:
  • standard dust
  • toxic and/or explosive dust: food dust, pharmaceutical or chemical powders, aluminum or metal remains
    • solids: metal scraps, granules, rocks, broken glass, ceramic
    • liquids: water, oil, emulsion, lubricants
    • fumes: welding fume, nebulized particles

 

According to the kind of material you need to suck, the industrial vacuum cleaner has to be properly equipped with the right filters and other special features like:

  • Earth grounding
  • HEPA filtration
  • Stainless steel  manufacture
  • Special and dedicated accessories

For instance, to clean ovens with hot food waste, the vacuum cleaner must be equipped with the proper Nomex filter, specific oven accessory kit, and high-temperature resistant hose and extensions.

 

 

THE SECOND QUESTION WOULD BE: WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE AN INDUSTRIAL VACUUM CLEANER?

There can be four different reasons to choose an industrial vacuum cleaner, all of them aiming at vacuuming the material in the most efficient way without slowing the production lines while guaranteeing workers’ maximum safety :

  • Mobile cleaning operations: to vacuum in any kind of space, industry and in any condition of work. It is the most common way of suction.
  • Suction directly from the machine:  continuous waste recover (even in narrow spaces)
  • Centralized vacuum systems: to clean a wide area and suck simultaneously from different suction points
  • Suck and transport the material from an area to another one.

 

 

THE THIRD QUESTION YOU NEED TO ASK YOURSELF IS: IS MY PLANT SURROUNDED BY A SPECIAL ENVIRONMENT?
IS THERE ANY SPECIFIC REQUIREMENT FOR THE EQUIPMENT?

The choice of the proper vacuum cleaner will depend on your needs and on the rules to respect. For example, the petrochemical industry has to follow many rules to avoid the risk of explosion and consequently will require an ATEX -certified vacuum cleaner (Atmosphère Explosive – explosive atmosphere).

The most common environments with unusual conditions are:

  • Explosive atmospheres, as for food, pharmaceutical, chemical, wood, plastic, steel, asbestos industries,
  • Clean rooms, where purity of the air must be maintained and avoid cross-contamination as in pharmaceutical, chemical and aeronautical industries,
  • Places with lack of electricity, like on the shipyards and on shipboard.
