Airborne dust in the workplace such as construction, renovation, and mining projects 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 a variety of industries where dust production and collection in the workplace are continually a threat. The industries in need of an airborne dust collector include, but are not limited to, construction, mining, and manufacturing industries taking on paint-blasting materials, roof rock, silica sand, asbestos, and other hazardous waste. Our President, Randy Bourdo, speaks about the power, success, and ability of our airborne dust collectors.
The Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District purchased a Hurricane 828 to remove sandblaster debris during bridge renovations. This dust is channeled from the tent enclosure and captured and filtered by the Hurricane 828 positioned below it on the ground.
A Hurricane 828 airborne dust collector collects sandblaster material at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. A PowerTech Plus 9.0L engine powers the vacuum pump, air compressor, and hydraulics.
