Company: Goodway Technologies

Equipment Snapshot: Goodway Technologies recently released the VAC-EX-120-9-SS, a powerful, yet compact solution that is designed for collecting dry, combustible powders such as flour, sugar and additives.

History is filled with disasters caused by airborne particles igniting in factory and production environments. Many nutraceutical, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical manufacturers are uniquely susceptible to these dangers through their high use of powdered substances. Explosion proof vacuums, certified for their specifics applications, are vital to employee and plant safety.

“Safety is priority number one in production environments, especially when dry powders and deposits can become flammable. Using just “any vacuum” can actually become a major fire hazard,” says Tim Kane, president of Goodway Technologies. “The new Goodway VAC-EX-120-9-SS’s compact design and construction, 115V power source and thorough certification makes it ideal for quick and effective pickup.”

The 115V electric dry industrial vacuum is certified explosion proof (Class II, Division 2, Groups F and G). The detachable 9-gallon collection tank allows for greater productivity. It is constructed of easy-to-clean stainless steel and the four swivel wheels add to the functionality.
