Explosion Proof, AIR-OPERATED

Industrial Vacuums for Hazardous Materials

Explosion Proof Dust Ignition Proof Compressed Air Operated Pneumatic Table Top  and Back Pack Portable Vacuums

 II 2 GD c IIC T6 (85oC)

Class I, Division 1, Groups A, B, C and D T6 and Class II, Division 1, Groups E, F, G, Hazardous Locations as defined in the National Electric Code (NFPA 70)

Certified EPL Db and EPL Gb (Equipment Protection Level)

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.


  • Powerful Suction - Highest Performance
  • Air operated Pneumatic unit with no electrical components or moving parts so it can run continuously and will not overheat or breakdown
  • Stainless steel construction makes it a solid unit that is easy to clean and sterilize
  • Static dissipating ESD safe
  • Complete with static dissipating suction hose and accessories
  • Compact and lightweight, weighing only 10lbs
  • Ideal for confined spaces and light applications
  • Quiet operation with only 72 dB

Filtration System:

  • Conductive ESD safe filters
  • HEPAPlus* Filtration with an efficiency of 99.995% @ 0.2 micron. Testing Method: IEST RP-CC034.3. H14. MIL-STD 282 / A.S.T.M. - D2986-91. MPPS method EN 1822.


Combustible/Conductive* dusts

  • Class II Group E* metal dusts (Aluminum, Bronze, Chromium, Iron Carbonyl, Magnesium, Tantalum, Titanium, Zinc, Zirconium, and other commercial alloys)
  • Class II Group F Carbonaceous dusts (Carbon black, Charcoal, coke, coal, etc.)
  • Class II Group G combustible dusts ( Agricultural, Calcium, Chemical, Cocoa, Coffee, Corn, Cotton, Egg white, Epoxy resin, Flour, Grain, Lactose, Malt,  Melamine, Milk, Oat, Plastic, Rice, Sodium, Spices, Starch, Sugars, Sulfur, Tobacco, Vinyl, Wheat, Whey, Wood, etc.)

* NFPA guidelines recommend a maximum collection capacity of 5 lbs for combustible metals in a dry format. If you require a higher capacity, please see our Explosion Proof Immersion Separator Vacuums.
