Housekeeping and Recovery of Combustible/Conductive Dusts: A Big Step in the Right Direction

Press release date: Jan 17, 2014

Until today the certification of Hazloc Portable Vacuum Cleaners and Dust Collectors as per the Ex OSHA/NRTL system, the IECEx Scheme and the European ATEX system covers only the possibility to use the equipment in hazardous locations/areas in presence of combustible/conductive dusts, but does not cover the possibility to use the equipment to recover these dusts.

Today we are proud to inform you that all Tiger-Vac EX certified vacuum cleaners have an additional certification: the inner parts of the Portable Vacuum Cleaners and Dust Collectors are certified for providing a very high protection level allowing the safe recovery of combustible/conductive dusts.

Incidents were reported regarding, for example, ATEX Zone 22 "Vacuums", not approved by the Authorities Having Jurisdiction, catching on fire and jeopardizing the health and safety of workers when this unsafe equipment is used for recovering combustible/conductive dusts in the work place.

At Tiger-Vac we feel that Safety Has No Compromise!
