Vacuums provide thorough cleaning without electricity.

Press Release Summary:

Connecting to any compressed-air system, Models CFM A15 and CFM A17 use air pressure driven through venturi to create suction powerful enough to handle large debris in applications such as metalworking, construction, and manufacturing. Compact and maneuverable, Model CFM A15 is suited for confined spaces, while Model CFM A17 features 26-gal tank for heavy-duty work. Both are available in stainless steel and have external filter shakers to prevent premature clogging.

Pneumatically Driven Vacuums from Nilfisk-Advance America Provide Thorough Cleaning Without Electricity

Malvern, PA - February 26, 2007 - A building under construction needs debris removed; the work crew has a diesel-powered air compressor for its tools but no onsite electric. A marina's floating pier, littered from a dockside boat repair, must be cleaned but standing water on the boards and splashing from all sides make an electric vacuum a dubious choice. These are just two scenarios where pneumatically driven vacuums are the answer. The CFM A15 and CFM A17 vacuums from Nilfisk-Advance America operate entirely without electricity yet provide all of the suction, filtration and durability for which the company's products are known.

The CFM A15 and CFM A17 connect to any compressed-air system and use air pressure driven through a venturi to create suction powerful enough to handle even large debris in applications such as metalworking, construction and manufacturing.

The CFM A15 is compact and maneuverable, well suited to confined spaces and transportation to remote locations. The larger CFM A17 can handle heavy-duty chores and features a large 26-gallon tank. Because the venturi has no moving parts, this unit is very low maintenance, making it suitable for continuous-duty applications, such as powder coating production lines. The A17 is also available in an explosion-proof model with conductive wheels and non-sparking, conductive accessories.

Both the CFM A15 and A17 have external filter shakers to prevent premature clogging. Both are available in stainless steel and can be fitted with optional HEPA filters and an array of anti-static filters and accessories.

"Companies don't need to accept substandard, manual cleaning - and the safety risks that can result - just because they can't use an electric vacuum," said Jessica Letscher, marketing communications manager for Nilfisk-Advance America. "The CFM A15 and A17 give users cleaning performance in wet environments, in remote locations and in other areas where electricity either shouldn't be used or simply isn't available."

Nilfisk-Advance America helps its industrial customers in the private and public sectors meet their individual cleaning requirements and challenges with an extensive range of high-performance vacuum cleaners. From its Malvern, Pa. headquarters, Nilfisk-Advance America provides industrial vacuums for heavy-duty applications that require maximum suction power; and specialty vacuums for clean applications that demand "absolute" air purity and facility cleanliness. The company's Nilfisk and CFM brand vacuums are equipped with industry-specific features and exceptionally efficient filtration systems, ensuring dust- and debris-free facilities in the food, chemical/pharmaceutical, electronics, metalworking/powder coating, and a variety of manufacturing industries.
