Press release date: February 3, 2017
BELLEVILLE, NJ USA (February 3, 2017) – VAC-U-MAX formally announces exhibition at THE 2017 PRECAST SHOW, March 2-4 at the Huntington Convention Center, Cleveland, Ohio, Booth 297, exhibiting the latest advances in Industrial Vacuum Cleaning Systems for the Precast Concrete Industry. THE 2017 PRECAST SHOW is the largest precast-specific trade event in North America, uniting attendees with suppliers and equipment experts as part of NPCA and PCI. A leader in minimizing silica dust and other hazardous and combustible dust exposure, VAC-U-MAX Booth 297 will feature Industrial Vacuum Cleaners for high volume recovery of even the finest dusts, utilizing HEPA Filtration of Respirable Hazardous Dusts. VAC-U-MAX Vacuum Cleaning Systems support compliance with OSHA Regulations and Best Hygiene Practices.
In addition to providing health and compliance benefits for the Precast Industry, high-powered HEPA vacuums reach concrete form areas that have not been cleaned in ages. Deep-cleaning of forms reveals smooth surfaces that enhance the consumer side of precast products and ensures a tight fit for mating surfaces. Using a HEPA vacuum system also eliminates the "false cleaning" of compressed air blow-off. VAC-U-MAX industrial vacuum cleaning product range includes electric and air-powered, non-electric systems that operate on the Venturi Principal, creating vacuum suction without motors or moving parts - an “Intrinsically Safe System” for applications requiring clean-up of abrasive and dusty cement particles.
