Extremely high-powered, portable, and environmentally friendly vacuums have become a necessity in the industrial painting and sandblasting industry.

With the new regulations and larger jobs being performed, the contractors have found a need for Hurricane™ vacuum loaders.  Vacuuming sand, steel grit, black beauty, or any other abrasive can be done at distances up to 1,000 feet.

The Hurricane™ diesel models 400, 500755, and 828 as well as electric models 500EM and Quiet Cube 150HP all have the powerful 27″ vacuum pumps that are required to perform such a task.  These units will load any container from a 55-gallon drum to a full-size dumpster automatically and, most importantly, they can do it with no dust emissions.

Industrial Vacuum Equipment Corporation offers several options, such as skid-mounted or electric vacuums, to meet any special requirements. Good air quality at job sites can ensure your workers are protected. Fortunately, our portable dust control systems make it easier. Discover how our industry-leading equipment has been specifically designed to improve air quality by checking out our blog: The Benefits Of Portable Dust Control Systems.

The importance of air quality at any job site should never be underestimated.

OSHA continues to modify and update its regulations to make sure industrial and construction workers alike are protected. Fortunately, taking the proper actions to ensure environments are safe for workers has become easier.
