New CFM 217 Vacuum Cleaner for Manufacturers Delivers Industrial-Level Performance and Compact Convenience

MALVERN, Pa., May 17, 2004 - Nilfisk-Advance America, a leading manufacturer of industrial vacuum cleaners, announces the availability of its new CFM 217 vacuum. The CFM 217 vacuum, which is designed to meet the general plant cleaning and maintenance needs of manufacturers in a variety of industries, harnesses the power of a large industrial vacuum in a compact, portable, and easy-to-use machine. The combined power and convenience of the CFM 217 helps manufacturers clean high-impact areas more quickly, easily, and thoroughly.

Nilfisk-Advance America's CFM 217 vacuum safely collects and retains dust, fine powders, and other debris within its high-efficiency filtration system through a series of progressively finer filters - including a HEPA exhaust filter - that capture increasingly small particles as they move through the vacuum. The multi-stage filtration system is proven to trap 99.97% of particles down to and including 0.3 microns, ensuring that collected materials are retained within the vacuum.

"Many of today's manufacturers require the power of an industrial-strength vacuum, but their facilities lack the storage space," said Mike D'Agostino, product manager for Nilfisk-Advance America. "So they're faced with choosing an inefficient 'shop vac' or a system that takes up valuable space and lacks maneuverability. We designed the CFM 217 vacuum so these manufacturers no longer have to choose between quality and convenience. With one vacuum, they get it all - industrial power and capacity in a design that works with their facility."

Additional filtration features help further improve vacuum performance. The vacuum's oversized main filter prevents premature clogging and improves overall filtration efficiency, while its external filter shaker mechanism allows for the quick and easy purging of the main filter, keeping it free of clogging dust and maintaining the vacuum's performance.

The CFM 217 also has several user-friendly options and accessories, including a fixed floor nozzle; a polyliner adapter kit; a large accessory basket for convenient storage of accessories; swivel-locking castors for easy transport in tight areas; a wet/dry collection option; and a lift-bar emptying system for the easy disposal of large volumes of debris.
