VAC-U-MAX Exhibits Industrial Vacuum Cleaning Equipment & Systems for High Volume Powder, Dust and Liquid Recovery at International Fuel Ethanol 2015, June 1-4, Minneapolis Convention Center, Minneapolis, MN, Booth 1327

BELLEVILLE, NJ USA (March 30, 2015) – VAC-U-MAX announces exhibition at the 31st Annual International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo that will be held June 1-4 at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, exhibiting the latest advancements in industrial vacuum cleaning. Equipment on display includes the MDL 1020MFS-15HP Continuous-Duty Industrial Vacuum, Model 40008 Portable Industrial Vacuum for fine combustible powder applications, and the venturi-driven TK-05, ideal for spill kits and flammable liquid recovery. VAC-U-MAX offers a full range of air-operated vacuum cleaners for many applications, engineered to address issues of chemical compatibility, flammability, combustibility, and worker exposure to dusts. Product range also includes central vacuum systems for plant-wide housekeeping and material handling convenience. Additionally, VAC-U-MAX designs and manufactures complete bulk transfer systems for movement of bulk materials from bulk bags / super sacks, drums, and silos.   

MDL 1020MFS: Continuous-Duty Industrial Vacuum for High Volume Recovery
VAC-U-MAX Model 1020 features a powerful positive displacement pump designed specifically for high volume recovery (up to 5 tons per hour) of ethanol and biofuel feedstocks.  Unit is available in either 10 or 15 HP. As a continuous-duty vacuum producer, unit provides power for “breakaway” central vacs. Large rubber tires along with a dual swivel castor wheel makes the 1020 easily maneuvered by a single operator. Unit is equipped for noise levels below OSHA standards and can be supplied with multiple material handling choices for collected debris.  

Model 40008: Industrial Vacuum Cleaner for Combustible Dusts
VAC-U-MAX Model 40008 is an air-powered industrial vacuum featuring a 30 gallon tank, and pulse-jet filter cleaning for Class II, Division II environments. Unit is completely grounded and bonded, and meets NFPA 77 requirements. VAC-U-MAX air-powered vacuums do not use electricity and do not generate heat, meeting the definition of an “intrinsically safe system”. Unit features a single venturi suction source, manual pulse filter cleaning with air reservoir, and noise muffler for sound levels below 80 dbA.   

Model TK-05: High Volume Liquid Recovery
VAC-U-MAX Model TK-05 is ideal for flammable and non-flammable liquid applications requiring high-volume liquid recovery. Unique design fills 99% of closed top drums at rates of up to 2 gallons per second without overfilling. Unit features a single venturi, producing maximum suction and air-flow with minimum air consumption. The TK-05 offers a quiet operation, with no motor noise and air exhaust muffled for sound levels within OSHA requirements. Unit is constructed of non-sparking stainless steel with ethanol-compatible vacuum hose and gaskets.
