The pneumatically powered, intrinsically safe FRV vacuums include the same great features as the electrically powered models. While there are no certification standards for air powered explosion proof vacuums, Ruwac’s are self-certified to the same UL, CSA and ATEX standards that apply to electric machines – with the only difference in construction being the replacement of the electric explosion proof vacuum motor and switch, with our stainless steel venturi. Our air-powered explosion proof vacuums are the safest alternative power explosion proof vacuum cleaner for use in Class I and Class II environments. Accessory Package 202025DEX.

Combustible dust is a light build-up of particular types of dust in a closed area that can be instantly ignited by an accidental spark and lead to loss of life and property. There are many different dust that can be considered combustible. If you have combustible dust in your facility OSHA requires that housekeeping practices in place.
