PrestiVac explosion proof/dust ignition proof vacuums are designed to safely vacuum explosive, combustible liquids. 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.
