A small industrial vacuum is specifically designed to address maintenance needs of plastic manufacturers, such as collecting plastic pellets and fine dust from around processing machines. Model CFM 118 from Nilfisk CFM, Malvern, Pa., reportedly provides high suction power, having a large main filter that prevents premature clogging, and an external feature that enables users to shake the main filter free of dust without opening the unit. When equipped with an optional HEPA filter, this unit is said to retain 99.995% of collected ultra-fine particles, down to 0.18 microns. The removable suction head is connected to a wheeled collection container. The unit can be equipped with accessories for overhead and high-temperature cleaning and for special applications that require anti-static hoses and accessories or special filters.
