Suppress dust and spills with these cleanup units

| By Chemical Engineering



The VHSC range (photo) of standalone or integrated dust collectors and vacuum cleanup conveyors are designed for high-volume air movement, providing dust control that meets ATEX-certified and explosion-proof standards for any powder having a minimum ignition energy (MIE) greater than 1 mJ. The units are available in three sizes with 10-, 14- and 18-in. diameters, and all contact parts are manufactured from 316L stainless steel. VHSC units provide multiple options for specific applications, including dust suppression, spillage cleanup or reclaiming excess product. With vacuum levels as deep as 26 in. Hg, the units cater to a wide range of materials, including slurries and dense metal powders, such as those used in 3-D metal printing. — Volkmann, Inc., Bristol, Pa.
