Explosion Proof Vacuums

Explosion proof table 1 (interactive)Ruwac recognizes the seriousness of the potential deadly hazard found in combustible dust or conductive metals, and offers a complete line of explosion proof vacuum systems ETL Certified to UL and CSA standards for Class I, Div 1, 2, Group D and Class II, Div 1, 2, Group F & G, and ATEX Zone 22 compliant. Featuring fully grounded, static dissipating designs that are guaranteed to be spark-free, Ruwac's explosion proof vacuum cleaners are made in the USA from the highest quality materials that can be custom fit to your needs.

Air Powered Explosion Proof Vacuums


Ruwac's portable pneumatic explosion proof vacuum cleaners are designed especially for combustible dust and hazardous locations. While there are no certification standards for pneumatic explosion proof vacuums, Ruwac’s FRV series vacuums are self-certified to UL, CSA and ATEX standards that apply for electric machines (with the only difference in construction being the replacement of the electric explosion proof vacuum motor and switch with our stainless steel venturi.) Our air powered explosion proof vacuums are the safest alternative power explosion proof vacuum cleaner for use in Class I and Class II environments.
