Portable Immersion Separators and Wet Mix Dust Extractors
Tiger-Vac offers a complete line of portable immersion separator wet mix systems for the recovery of combustible metal dusts, such as: aluminum, magnesium, tantalum, titanium, zirconium and other commercial alloys.
The immersion separators are powered by explosion proof vacuum cleaners which are legally certified for use in Class I, Div 1, Group D and Class II, Div 1, Groups E, F & G hazardous locations as defined in the National Electric Code (NFPA 70). Explosion proof vacuums are available in electrically operated (single or three phase) and pneumatic (air-operated) versions.
The recovery and neutralization of the combustible metal dust is accomplished by vacuuming the dust through a neutralizing liquid as outlined in NFPA Standard 484. Tiger-Vac recommends the use of Mineral Oil with a viscosity = 10.5 cSt as the neutralizing liquid. Water can also be used depending on the type of dust being recovered.
