Morgantown, Pa.-The Nilfisk Industrial Vacuum Division has expanded its line of combustible dust vacuums with the availability of the new Nilfisk CFM 118/50EXP. Designed for the collection of dry dust and debris that often accumulates on floors and overhead areas in manufacturing facilities, this single-phase, electric vacuum cleaner is CSA-certified explosion-proof / dust ignition-proof for use in Class I, Group D, and Class II, Groups E, F, and G environments.
Constructed to the highest level of operational safety, the Nilfisk CFM 118/50EXP is completely grounded, composed of non-sparking 304 stainless steel, and equipped with conductive hose and accessories to eliminate percussion arcing and static charge. The Nilfisk CFM 118/50 EXP also features:

Downstream HEPA filter to capture 99.97% of debris, down to and including 0.3 microns; Optional upstream HEPA/ULPA filtration is also available.
The launch of the Nilfisk CFM 118/50 EXP enhances the company's current explosion-proof vacuum offerings, which already include the 118EXP, a smaller, dry-only unit, and the 118EXPW, a wet/dry unit.
