Ruwac's DS2-EX Series: The Most Powerful Innovation Yet In the War On Combustible Dust


Ruwac USA announced the expansion of its explosion-proof vacuum family with the DS2-EX Series. Like the FRV Series, the DS2-EX Series is legally certified to requirements for use in hazardous locations (Class I, Division 1 and 2, Group D; and Class II, Division 1 and 2, Groups F and G) and is ETL third-party-certified to UL and CSA standards. It reaches full compliance with OSHA and NFPA initiatives for combustible dust as well. Made in the U.S., Ruwac's electric explosion-proof vacuums are intrinsically safe, with all parts and components fully grounded, static-dissipating and guaranteed to be spark-free.

The DS2-EX Series is also Ruwac's largest explosion-proof vacuum series to date, with eight different models featuring continuous-duty operation and high performance (up to 506 CFM) in a compact size for easy mobility. Each DS2-EX includes an explosion-proof TEFC motor alongside a multistage centrifugal turbine and relief valve rated for 24/7 operation. This vacuum's modular housing is under 8 cubic feet in total area and made from a durable carbon-impregnated fiberglass composite backed by a lifetime guarantee. A foot-actuated 24-gallon dustpan provides increased collection and dust-free emptying, while 48 square feet of MicroClean filtration ensures your vacuum system will never clog. Need absolute filtration? Optional HEPA filters are available.

Ideal for heavy pickup in and around production equipment and storage areas or for use as a central vacuum system, these continuous-duty vacuums will not only remove the risk of a possible explosion, but will increase productivity while turning your workspace environment into a dust-free zone.
