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 Venturi power unit that offers extremely low compressed-air consumption. The system features a 15-gal collection drum, and with no expensive electrical components or moving parts, is ideal 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 a 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 in. Hg, with maximum air flow of 100 SCFM, requiring 35 SCFM @ 60 psi. The suction connection is 1.5 in. in diameter, with compressed-air connection at ½-in. NPT (female). Noise levels are below 79 DBA @ 8 in. 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, Div. 2 environments.
