MALVERN, PA — Recent headlines have brought the idea of combustible dust explosions to the national spotlight, and a website has been created by Nilfisk-Advance Inc. to address common concerns, according to a press release.
Through videos, fact sheets, application photos and links to sites like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) National Emphasis Program (NEP) on Combustible Dust, www.explosionproof-vacuum.com gives manufacturers access to pertinent information regarding combustible dust and fire/explosion prevention, the release stated.
Paul Miller, vice president and general manager of Nilfisk-CFM North America, said: "Even though the industrial sector is now very aware of the risks of combustible dust, they still have a lot of questions. Many manufacturers still aren’t sure if the material in their plants is considered "explosive" or if their equipment meets OSHA recommendations. Explosionproof-vacuum.com strives to answer some of those questions as they relate to maintenance procedures and explosion-proof vacuums, providing a one-stop site for manufacturers looking to learn more about combustible dust."
Nilfisk CFM, a division of Nilfisk-Advance, provides industrial vacuums for heavy-duty applications that require maximum suction power and specialty vacuums for clean applications that demand "absolute" air purity and facility cleanliness, the release noted.
