Combustible Dust Preventative Maintenance is a Serious Job that Requires a Serious Solution

Posted on January 12, 2011

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) continues to have its sights set on combustible dust, once again naming it a high priority for the new year. As a result, industrial manufacturers are stepping up their maintenance plans to remove hazardous dust accumulations. In high-risk facilities, certified explosion-proof vacuum cleaners are required to safely collect combustible dust; our Nilfisk CFM CD 3507 EXP is an explosion-proof vacuum ideal for larger combustible dust jobs, including process-integration to collect dust at the source or as part of a central vacuum system used throughout the plant. 

Nilfisk CD3507EXPLike all our EXP vacuums, the Nilfisk CFM CD 3507 EXP is CSA-approved for use in Class I, Group D and Class II, Groups E, F, and G environments. Constructed of non-sparking stainless steel, the vacuum features an explosion-proof regenerative blower with a three-phase TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled) induction motor with few moving parts and long service life. Other features include:

  • Antistatic filter with large surface area guarantees high filtration efficiency and prevents premature clogging.
  •  Available with manual or automatic filter cleaning system to easily clean the main filter, without opening up the vacuum. This not only maintains vacuum suction performance, but also improves worker productivity.
  • Drop out wheeled collection container for easy disposal of collected materials.
  •  Optional HEPA filtration available to collect 99.97% of particles, down to and including 0.3 microns. 

In addition, the Nilfisk CFM CD 3507 EXP is available with a wide range of non-sparking, antistatic accessories to clean hard-to-reach areas including overhead pipes, walls, and machinery.
