Industrial Vacuum Solutions for Automotive & Aviation
The automotive and aviation industries requires the use of vacuum cleaners in many industrial processes. From the construction of automobiles and airplanes up to the cycles of preventive and reactive maintenance needed between shifts or flights. In particular, preventive maintenance is a very delicate phase that includes routine tasks such as filling up oils, lubricants, fuels and cleaning of internal and external parts. Requirements may include the use of industrial vacuum cleaners with different levels of security and performance.
Some maintenance processes may require special construction features, such as the use of activated carbons for filtration of solvents, vapors or dusts emitted during surface treatment or for oils and fuels’ recovery and filtration. Especially in oil and fuel recovery, law requires the use of NRTL certified equipment.
OSHA permits the recognition of third-party organizations to certify the use of machinery and equipment in environments where there is a potential for flammable or combustible dust. These are known as Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory programs.
An NRTL certified vacuum cleaner is a vacuum cleaner that has undergone and passed the proper testing by an NRTL. Certification for equipment will vary by product and industry, but the one goal remains clear throughout each testing program: demonstrate this product as explosion-proof.
During the production phase, Delfin meets this need with vacuum systems that guarantee an excellent level of cleanliness, with engines suitable to work for a long time and vacuuming high quantities of dust.
Delfin vacuums can be wheeled for use in different areas of production, installed directly on the machinery tool or installed on a precise production point. The ultimate goal remains to ensure a clean working environment and a product that is constantly free of dust in order not to compromise the final result.
Depending on the demands of your industry, you may be seeking the benefits best provided by a three-phase industrial vacuum cleaner. Delfin’s three-phase vacuums are perfect for demanding operations that require continuous use for maintaining a clean environment and machine upkeep. These cleaners may also be attached for direct extraction.
Single-phase vacuums come with their own perks as well, and they may be used in a variety of environments without issues as they are powered by the standard outlet found in the average household.
What about the finest and most dangerous dust? Delfin offers a wide range of combustible dust vacuums with high filtration filters that efficiently purify the outgoing air, avoiding that hazardous dust that can come into contact with the operators. Delfin HEPA filters trap dust at .18 microns or 99.995% efficiency. We also offer heat-resistant Nomex filters, Class M Pocket filters, and much more.
Central vacuum systems (CVS) are a solution for large operations or operations with the need for serious housekeeping. While some industry lines will do just fine with one or two portable industrial vacuums, others need regular access to material collection systems throughout their space.
A CVS has many significant benefits, some of which may include:
- Cutting down on extensive cleaning labor
- Assisting safety managers in compliance maintenance
- Product line integration for efficiency
- Improved hygiene throughout your operation
- Further prevention of cross contamination
When installed adequately, your CVS would include multiple points of suction, direct extraction on product machinery, overhead cleaning attachments, and a collection point with automatic filter cleaning system.
Over the years, Delfin has partnered with companies from a variety of industries – all requiring distinct housekeeping demands based on their material and government-enforced regulations. We understand the complex variables underlying automotive and aviation operations. Looking to learn more? We encourage you to connect with our office.
