Tiger-Vac Vacuum Cleaners
73 S.W. 12 Ave., # 107
Dania, FL, 33004

Press release date: March 19, 2013

The OSHA Combustible Dust Program tells us to refer to the primary National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) consensus standard related to this hazard which is: NFPA 654: Standard for the Prevention of Fire and Dust Explosion form Manufacturing Processing and Handling of Combustible Particulate Solids.

According to NFPA 654, as little as 1/32 of an inch of organic dust over 5 percent of a room's surface area presents a significant explosion hazard. Considering this, the HAZ-LOC PORTABLE VACUUM CLEANERS ORGANIZATION INC. recommends to only use certified vacuum cleaners for Division 1 in areas where the quantity of organic dust is above 1/32 of an inch over 5 percent of a room's surface area.

So is this the only equation?  Of course not!

A dust analysis and risk assessment must always be done regarding the type of dust existing in the atmosphere, and the risk of an explosion.  This needs to be implemented in Hazardous Locations in order to define what type of equipment is needed, which in our case, refers to Portable Vacuums Cleaners or Dust Collectors.

Tiger-Vac offers Legally Certified Explosion Proof / Dust Ignition Proof Vacuum Cleaners for Division 1, and we also offer Vacuum Cleaners with an enhanced level of protection for Division 2.

At Tiger-Vac, safety has no compromise.

For all of our Division 2 Vacuum Cleaners, the internal parts are static dissipative and conductive.  This includes all Main Filters, Safety Filters and Collection Recovery Bags.  These internal parts are the same components that are used and built for our Division 1 Vacuum Cleaners.

Using these parts will ensure the same safety for both Division 1 and Division 2.

Being certified for ISO 9001:2008, CSA, ATEX, IECEx and NRTL worldwide, we have not only met these requirements, we have exceeded them.  We continuously strive to improve upon our existing products, as well as to design new systems to serve ever changing industries.
