Case Study

Construction, renovation, and mining projects can generate a lot of airborne dust that can be toxic to humans and the environment.  Industrial Vacuum Equipment Corporation of Ixonia, Wisconsin, takes cleaning tasks by storm with the Hurricane industrial vacuums and the 20DC portable dust collector.  These John Deere-powered units work in the construction, mining, and manufacturing industries taking on paint-blasting materials, roof rock, silica sand, asbestos, and other hazardous waste.  In this issue, President Randy Bourdo shares a bit about Industrial Vacuum, its products, and the company's long-terms tie to John Deere.

The Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District purchased a Hurricane 828 to remove sandblasting debris during bridge renovations.  Dust is channeled from the tent enclosure and captured and filtered by the Hurricane 828 positioned below it on the ground.

A Hurricane 828 collects sandblasting material at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.  A PowerTech Plus 9.0L engine powers the vacuum pump, air compressor, and hydraulics.
