Ruwac’s DS2720-EX offers continuous duty operation with high performance in a compact footprint. The vacuum is legally certified to NRTL standards for use inside Class I, Group D and Class II, Groups F & G rated atmospheres, OSHA and NFPA compliant, fully grounded and guaranteed non-sparking by an impact. The DS2720-EX series is capable of safely removing large quantities of combustible dust and particles into an easily disposable 24 gallon foot-actuated dustpan using 506 cfm. Our industry-leading MicroClean antistatic filtration system removes 99.9% down to .5 microns. An optional HEPA filter upgrade ensures that only purified air is returned to the workplace.

Ruwac’s DS2720-EX series come equipped with an explosion-proof continuous duty TEFC motor and a lifetime guaranteed fiberglass composite housing. Our vacuums are built to withstand rugged use while safely dissipating static. Anti-static casters and a counter-balanced base provide safe, easy mobility during operation.

The DS2720-EX does meet NFPA 654 requirement that the storage container is less than 8 cubic feet. The more powerful models can be connected to tubing for a mini central system. Call us for a personal consultation by a certified Ruwac explosion proof application engineer.
