Industrial vacuums are designed and manufactured to meet specific requirements of users and tasks that are typically too heavy to handle.
The main difference between an industrial vacuum and regular retail models is their efficiency and sturdiness. They are characterised by their high performance and are able to work continuously for long periods of time.
What are industrial vacuums designed to do?
An industrial vacuum is designed to guarantee excellent performance and work at the highest production level for long periods of time. This eliminates costly machine stops and reduces costs and losses due to its long shelf life.
Using a feature called absolute filters they have a filtering efficiency of 99.99%, even with thin powders. You will also get maximum safety in potentially explosive environments.
The structure of an industrial vacuum cleaner is sturdy, often made of solid steel, and will sometimes be painted with a protective varnish. It has a small engine that does not really add to the complete weight of the machine and guarantees high suction efficiency. In most cases, this type of vacuum cleaner is equipped with rubber wheels, allowing it to easily follow the operator on pretty much any surface.
What questions should I ask when buying or renting a vacuum?
When buying or renting an industrial vacuum cleaner, it is important to evaluate the prerequisites of the job you are looking to do –
- Do we need to vacuum thin or dangerous powders and work with other tools at the same time?
- Do we need to vacuum hot residues or ashes?
- Do we need to use the vacuum cleaner within healthcare environments or cleanrooms?
- Do we have to intervene in flooded areas and suck up large quantities of liquids?
