Equipment Snapshot: VAC-U-MAX has introduced the MDL15, the newest member of VAC-U-MAX’s Combustible Dust Industrial Vacuum Cleaning product range. The MDL15 Air-Vac features a 15-gallon drum and VAC-U-MAX Venturi power unit - the lowest compressed-air consumption on the market today. With no expensive electrical components or moving parts, the MDL15 is designed for fine powders and combustible dusts – a true “intrinsically safe system.”
The MDL15 features a manual blow back filter cleaning system with static-conductive PTFE pre-filter and secondary cartridge filter, static-conductive casters and collects fine powders and dusts in off-the-shelf static-conductive polybags eliminating “the mushroom cloud” that comes with drum dumping. Standard construction includes anti-sparking stainless steel in 304SS or 316SS bead-blast finish, and is suitable for food environments. The MDL15 is also equipped with a static-conductive compressed air hose, ATEX-certified vacuum hose and complete cleaning tool kit.
The Single-Venturi Power Unit offers maximum suction power at 16” HG (208” H20), with a maximum Air Flow of 100 SCFM, requiring 35SCFM @ 60 PSI Compressed-Air. Suction connection is 1.5” in diameter, with compressed-air connection at ½” NPT (Female). Noise levels are below 79 DBA @ 6" HG. Bonding and grounding requirements meet NFPA 77-2007 "Recommended Practice on Static Electricity."
Typical industrial vacuum cleaning applications for the MDL15 include floors, walls, machinery and overhead surfaces of many types of fine powders and combustible dusts, for the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and general manufacturing industries. The MDL15 is suitable for Class II, Division 2 environments.
