Volkmann’s standalone or integrated “all 316L” high-containment dust collectors and vacuum cleanup conveyors provide effective dust control that meets ATEX-Certified and explosion-proof standards for any powder having a Minimum Ignition Energy of greater than 1 mJ. 

Used for simple and effective dust collection, dust cleanup, or as a dust collector for a bag dump station, they are capable of handling dry, semi-dry, or liquid cleanup, including many challenging situations such as dense metal powders such as those used in 3D Metal printing, liquid and slurry applications, cuttings from machine tools, and cleanout of brake lining molds, and many others. 

The units are available in three sizes, 10-, 14-, and 18-in. diameters and feature both the patented Volkmann modules for tool-free cleaning and filter system as well as common seals throughout. Noise levels of 76dBA provide quiet operation unlike many less sophisticated units. The units also feature a filter cleaning system that back pulses the filter at the simple turning of the on/off pump switch, resulting in longer use without the need to clean filters. The VSHC units incorporate a 0.3 micron Quick Exchange filter as standard with optional HEPA filtration and a variety of hose size options and custom designed hoods or pickup tools, to suit specific applications.
