Charlotte NC - Not all industrial vacuums are created equal. While most will pick up what you need picked up, there are some that do that...and more. At Latta Equipment, we've spent the last 17 years finding the right high-quality Ruwac Industrial Vacuums to help our customers get their toughest jobs done. Ruwac vacuums are unique for a number of different and crucial reasons.
o Explosions Happen
Many of our Ruwac Industrial Vacuums are certified explosion proof. You might not think you need to worry about your vacuum exploding, however, if you work with even the smallest amount of combustible dust, it is something you can't afford to ignore. This is especially true during the colder, winter months. The U.S. Chemical Safety Board recently reported that seven out of eight fatal combustible dust explosions from 1995 to 2009 occurred during the predominantly cold weather months. And even if, as we hope, there are no tragedies, you still have to worry about incurring massive fines from OSHA for having too much combustible dust in your facility. Either way, you need a vacuum that can pick up and store combustible dust safely and effectively. At Latta, we only sell Ruwac vacuums because they do both better than anything on the market.
o Better Materials
We feature Ruwac products because they make vacuums that are simply better than the competition. Ruwac builds each of its vacuums from a rust and dent-proof compressed fiberglass housing material, equivalent to 7 gauge stainless steel. Our explosion proof line of vacuums (the FRV line) meets Class I, Division 1 & 2, Group D, and Class II, Division 1 & 2, Groups F and G, in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70. The FRV line is intrinsically safe, with all parts and components fully grounded, static dissipating, and guaranteed to be spark-free.
They have been certified for Class II, Division 1 & 2, Groups F and G by an independent laboratory to meet or exceed the standards of UL Standards: UL 1017, UL 1203, CSA C22.2 No 243-01, CSA C22.2 No. 30M 1986 CSA C22.2 No. 25-1966. Ruwac manufactures and uses EXP rated accessories and components. MADE IN THE USA.
The competition's vacuums have metal housings that can easily dent, and the dust pan can become misshapen. A compromised or damaged vacuum is both inefficient and dangerous.
In addition, many of our competitors' machines are manufactured overseas, leading to our next point.
o Built in the USA Ruwac builds vacuums with highest quality filters, housings, hoses, and accessories right here in US of A. You can trust that you are getting the safest air powered vacuum on the market because each vacuum we sell is independently tested and certified by ETL to UL and CSA standards. In addition, Ruwac guarantees their vacuum's housings for life.
It's clear that there is a lot at stake when it comes to choosing the right industrial vacuum. Therefore, take some time today to check out our website or drop us a line, and let the experts at Latta help you find the right explosion proof Ruwac Industrial Vacuum for you.
