Safety First: Goodway Technologies Adds New Vacuum Designed for Hazardous Material Pickup

December 24, 2018

Goodway Technologies continues to prove it’s a leader in providing solutions that effectively meet industrial maintenance needs with the latest introduction to the selection of industrial vacuums. The VAC-EX-120-9-SS is a powerful, yet compact solution that is designed for collecting dry, combustible powders such as flour, sugar and additives.

History is filled with disasters caused by airborne particles igniting in factory and production environments. Many nutraceutical, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical manufacturers are uniquely susceptible to these dangers through their high use of powdered substances. Explosion proof vacuums, certified for their specifics applications, are vital to employee and plant safety.

“Safety is priority number one in production environments, especially when dry powders and deposits can become flammable. Using just “any vacuum” can actually become a major fire hazard,” says Tim Kane, President of Goodway Technologies. “The new Goodway VAC-EX-120-9-SS’s compact design and construction, 115V power source and thorough certification makes it ideal for quick and effective pickup.”
