Spillrite Vacuums Canada gets ATEX certification.

With the advent of challenging environment, it is foremost that Industrial Air Powered Vacuums are built adherent to operating conditions and applications. With that in mind it became foremost to getting Spillrite Canada Explosion proof vacuums ATEX certified and UKCA certified for use under inflammable and combustible waste collection. This standard is particularly prevalent for use under explosive atmospheres. Spillrite Canada Vacuums is now approved for use in National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70; NEC ratings Class 1 Div: 1 and Class 2 Div 1 groups areas well. Spillrite Canada Vacuums can now predominantly supply both Drum Top Vacuum (DTV) and Drum Lid Vacuum ( DLV) for this rugged and harsh environment as Spillrite Canada Air vacuums are inherently and unconditionally safe in a constantly hazardous explosive or combustible atmosphere as there are no ignition sources or mechanisms for ignition incorporated within it, under normal operation.

ATEX Certified Explosion proof vacuums

Spillrite Canada explosion proof vacuum cleaners are safe for use in hazardous situations for control of combustible dusts and most flammable fluids. Our vacuums do not create any arcing or sparks or generate any heat through normal operation. Explosion proof vacuum cleaners particularly when powered by compressed air provide the highest safety rating and are intrinsically safe. As the vacuum power is created through the venturi principle and there are no moving parts, there is no friction or heat created in the process.

One of Spillrite Canada’s most popular Explosion Proof Vacuum Cleaners is the SPAV/EX, Spill Control Air Vac Explosion Proof. This air powered explosion proof drum lid vacuum attaches to a steel drum and turns the drum into a powerful wet only explosion proof vacuum.

With the twin reverse thruster venturi’s, this unit has massive power which delivers impressive performance. The vacuum of choice for many offshore rigs and gas platforms. Safe and powerful. When configured with explosion proof fittings and anti static suction hose, the Drum Lid Vacuum becomes an important tool when recovering flammable liquids or combustible dusts.

The Spillrite Canada’s anti-static Drum Vacuums can be configured in a variety of power settings. The most powerful is 300 cfm of compressed air. The DLV units are also designed to be able to reverse pump out fluid. Through the unique design of the venturi’s there is no possibility of the drum over pressurising as all excess pressure is released through the throat of the venturi. This is a unique design solution which is not readily available through off-shelf models

When the lock band is secured, the lid and the drum become grounded to the earth and provide a complete circuit which will release any build up of static electricity. This explosion proof vacuum is widely used within the gas and oil industry.

Spillrite Canada looks forward to offering complete solution for ATEX certified air powered pneumatic industrial vacuums as well Mine safe Combustible dust vacuums, which are also ATEX certified
