These portable explosion-proof dust collectors feature the proven FRV, DS2-EX series portable vacuums and NA35 Series portable immersion separation vacuums joined with an exclusive point-of-source extraction swing arm system, designed specifically to safely collect airborne combustive dusts, gases, and smoke emitted during the manufacturing process. They are portable and allow for a full range of mobility on the work floor.

Available in up to 500 CFM, all vacuums are compliant to NFPA standards, OSHA’s combustible dust initiative CPL-03-00-008, and certified to Class I, Div. 1 & 2, Group D and Class II, Div. 1 & 2, Groups F & G requirements for use in hazardous locations, making them ideal for work environments where materials may pose a combustible dust hazard. Each dust collector also doubles as a general housekeeping vacuum when the point of source extraction arm is disconnected to directly remove dust and keep the workspace spotless.

Explosion-proof TEFC motors, a multi-stage centrifugal, and high-performance turbine and relief valve rate each vacuum for continuous-duty operation. The vacuum’s modular housing is under 8 cu ft in total area, fully grounded, and made from durable materials that are non-sparking by impact, backed by a lifetime guarantee. The FRV and DS2-EX Series includes models that can be used to safely collect Groups F & G dry combustible dusts, while the NA35 Series immersion separation vacuums are intended for the removal of Group E conductive metals.
