Manufacturers Have New Option for Tackling High-Risk Combustible Metal Dusts

Nilfisk Industrial Vacuums Launches EXP Immersion Separator for Group E Dusts

Morgantown, Pa., - Combustible metal dusts, such as the aluminum particulate being blamed for this week's deadly explosion at a Chinese factory, often require special care during housekeeping processes. It is often recommended that metal dusts be collected by an approved explosion-proof vacuum cleaner in conjunction with a wet immersion separator, like Nilfisk Industrial Vacuum's new Nilfisk CFM Immersion Separator.

Built to the same high standards associated with Nilfisk's Explosion-Proof Vacuum line, the Nilfisk CFM Immersion Separator for explosive dusts is used in conjunction with Nilfisk CFM-brand vacuum cleaners, such as the A15 EXP or A17 EXP. Placed upstream from the vacuum, it safely traps and retains dangerous dust particles, common to Group E, in a neutralizing fluid bath. Standard features include:

o Constructed of low-sparking materials and grounded components

o Grounding strap for added safety

o Drain valve for easy emptying

o Sight level tube to monitor liquid levels

o Antistatic wheels for maneuverability

o Coalescent filters that prevent the passage of fluid droplets that have been agitated by the working air from passing back to the vacuum

All of Nilfisk's explosion-proof vacuum cleaners can be equipped with antistatic, conductive accessories to meet every combustible dust cleaning challenge, including overhead. For more information on the Nilfisk CFM Immersion Separator, visit or call 1-800-645-3475.
