The CFM A17 compressed-air vacuum is said to collect and retain fine powder pigments from powder coating booths and other areas of the plant where electrical lines are either unavailable or undesirable. The vacuum enables plant managers to increase productivity while preventing cross-contamination and color bleeding. The vacuum operates virtually maintenance free for extended periods of time due to its lack of moving parts and high-efficiency filtration system. The system features a series of filters that trap increasingly smaller particles as they travel through the vacuum, including a large polyester main filter with 21 sq ft of surface area to prevent premature clogging.
