VAC-U-MAX Next Generation Continuous Duty Industrial Vacuum Offers Increased Efficiency, Productivity, and Maneuverability
Belleville, New Jersey June 13, 2012 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) VAC-U-MAX, pioneer in manufacturing heavy-duty industrial vacuums and central vacuum systems introduces the next generation of its model 1020 continuous duty industrial vacuum, the VAC-U-MAX Model 1050, which boasts 100 percent more filter area for increased efficiency, a unique atmospheric blowback system that allows filter cleaning with power on, larger wheels to deliver superior maneuverability, and reduced noise levels, making the 1050 the quietest portable industrial vacuum cleaner in the industry.
"Product improvements are standard here, but this improvement is significant enough to warrant a model change," says David Kennedy, GM of the Vacuum Cleaning Division at VAC-U-MAX.
Two of the most significant improvements are the unit's increased filter capacity which enhances the ability to handle finer powders and filter them more efficiently reducing the load on the vacuum producer, and the new unique atmospheric blowback system.
The reduced load on the vacuum producer puts more power to the end of the hose, giving the operator more power for an extended period of time than in the past.
In the past providing larger filter capacity was a challenge because that meant although the vacuum was electric powered, an umbilical cord to a compressed air supply was necessary to pulse clean the filters. Now, the unique atmospheric blowback system allows users to clean the filters without compressed air and without having to turn off the vacuum increasing productivity and reducing wear and tear on the motor.
Another productivity advantage of the new atmospheric blowback system on the VAC-U-MAX 1050 is the ability the have the motor continue running while users change out filled drums or hoppers.
The combination of the product enhancements listed and above and improved silencing exhaust system make the 1050 the quietest continuous duty industrial vacuum in the industry. "We've always been known for our low noise level and we just knocked it down another 5 dB," says Kennedy.
On par with making its products safer for workers, VAC-U-MAX has increased the diameter of the front wheels from 10 inches to 14 inches, and replaced the single 8-inch caster on the rear with a duel 8-inch swivel caster, making the unit more maneuverable for a single operator.
Due to the unit's maneuverability and its powerful suction, it can also be used as a portable central vacuum system with one, two or three operators using local tubing networks in multiple areas, supporting a couple hundred feet of tubing. Because the unit is moved to debris it uses less energy than a central vacuum system that requires more hp to move material farther, and costs around half of what a central vacuum system cost.
Available for combustible and non-combustible materials, the new VAC-U-MAX 1050 continuous duty vacuum, offered with 10 or 15 horsepower, has 100 percent more filter area, enhanced suction, quieter operation, improved maneuverability, and increases productivity in metal powders, sludges, foundry sand, steel shot and other applications with materials similar in nature.
