Certified EPL Db and EPL Gb (Equipment Protection Level)

PrestiVac Containment Vacuums are specifically designed to safely vacuum potent compounds. The potent compounds are safely collected and contained inside a Disposable Absolute HEPAPlus* Collection Tank with an efficiency of 99.995% on 0.2 micron so there is no risk of exposure or contamination for the operator or the environment.

PrestiVac explosion proof/dust ignition proof vacuums are designed to safely vacuum explosive, combustible conductive* dusts. Our explosion proof/dust ignition proof vacuums are completely grounded and static dissipating because they are built entirely with non-sparking metals and do not have any painted components so there is no risk of fire or explosion from a spark or static build up. Compressed Air-Operated Vacuums have no motor or electrical components that can overheat and be a source of ignition. Our explosion proof vacuums comply with NFPA 484 guidelines and are an effective tool for good housekeeping practise as per OSHA.

Features:

  • Powerful Suction - Highest Performance
  • Stainless steel construction makes it a solid unit that is easy to clean and sterilize
  • Automatic Filter Shaker
  • Static dissipating ESD safe
  • Complete with static dissipating suction hose and accessories
  • Automatic suction shut off system when the collection tank is full of liquids (for Wet & Dry models)
  • Stainless steel Drain valve assembly for easy emptying (for Wet & Dry models)
  • RCT Removable Collection Tank system makes it easy to empty and clean
  • Stainless steel storage bin for hose and accessories
  • Quiet operation with only 72 dB
