ATEX PUMA 10 Z20/Z22
The Puma 10 ATEX Z20/Z22 is an industrial vacuum cleaner of the heavy series, for working in harsh conditions and with heavy materials. The extractor has a third-party certification (TUV) which certifies the internal area as Z20. It mounts a dual-stage side channel blower in parallel/series with high airflow/depression. The safety vacuum breaker valve is installed as standard. The tangential inlet together with the robust cyclone welded inside the filtration chamber guarantees excellent efficiency even with the finest powders. The material, entering tangentially, meets the cyclone and due to the friction generated, it loses speed falling directly into the container. This system is very useful for protecting the filter from the sucked material. The filter is polyester, M class certified, with a filtration efficiency of 1 µ. The filter can be customized according to the specific application. The unit is equipped, as standard, with a manual filter cleaning system which, thanks to a practical lever on the upper part of the industrial vacuum, with which the filter can be shaken easily and effectively. On request, it is possible to configure the vacuum cleaner with an automatic counter-current filter cleaning system. A practical and sturdy 175 Lt container, equipped with a release system, allows you to collect the vacuumed material and dispose of it with ease. To facilitate the handling of the container there are 4 pivoting wheels mounted on reinforced supports in order to facilitate handling even when there are several kg of material inside. On request, a kit is available that allows the handling and unloading of the container with the forklift.
The suction unit is an ATEX certified side channel blower with direct coupling between motor and impeller. Furthermore, to guarantee safe work, the unit is equipped with a safety valve which, in the event of obstruction in the vacuuming elements, prevents overheating.
The filtration is guaranteed by an M class polyester filter. The star shape enables air to flow through the filter even when it is dirty. The fabric of the filter is classified as M Class (BIA | EN 60335-2-69). This means that all particles till 1 micron are stopped by the filter so as to protect the blower and the operator around the vacuum cleaner.
The tangential inlet is designed to ease the process of pushing the material down the bin. A sturdy metal cyclone welded inside the chamber slows the material's entry speed considerably down so that it falls directly inside the bin. This way, the filter is efficiently protected, minimizing clogging risk.
The vacuumed material is collected in an AISI 304 stainless steel container, equipped with a metal handle that enables the bin to be detached from the machine, to avoid any spark that could be generated by the electrostatic charge. Thanks to the 4 sturdy pivoting wheels, the bin can be moved very easily to then dispose of the collected material. Each wheel is reinforced to guarantee maximum stability during handling.
