Explosion-Proof for Every Space

We’re proud to offer this explosion-proof, anti-static compressed air vacuum from HafcoVac. This vacuum was designed to be safe for Class I, II, and III, Division 1 and 2 environments. Even with combustible material in the air, the vacuum’s construction and convenient grounding means the vacuum operates safely.

Power and Versatility in One

This vacuum was made to be the only vacuum you need for potentially hazardous spaces. Able to easily handle wet or dry applications, and the optional extension kits allow you to extend your vacuum’s reach up to 18’. An optional silencer lets you dampen the noise to only 77 dB, while the included crevice tool lets you get into hard-to-reach areas.

No Electricity or Moving Parts

Using the power of compressed air, this vacuum eliminates the risk of running an electric-powered vacuum in hazardous spaces. The right model of vacuum depends on your available compressed air supply. We’ve included a chart below to help you determine the right model for you. The lack of moving parts on the vacuum means there’s no parts to wear out, replace, or give off sparks.

Don’t sacrifice safety for performance.

With the explosion-proof compressed-air vacuum from HafcoVac, you can clean potentially hazardous spaces while keeping your work crews safe.

Which model do I need? The 48CFM, 85CFM or the 185CFM? 
  • It depends on your air supply. See chart below for recommendations. Your typical garage air compressor will not run these vacuums. 

What size vacuum should I get? 

  • Both drum sizes will perform virtually the same. It all comes down to how much space you want to take up with the vacuum. 

Is this the right vacuum for my application? 

  •  We recommend each customer consult with a professional safety consultant to determine whether or not this unit is appicable to their particular situation. In general, this vacuum is rated as safe for use in Class I, II, III Division 1 & 2 envronments. 
Can I get a longer hose?


 Air Supply Info:
  • This vacuum runs on compressed air, and if not already present at your facility, can require require an investment of a sizable air compressor to operate properly
  • The air compressor used to run the vacuum must be able to deliver a minimum of our rated CFM @ 90 PSI.
  • The Vacuum will work if air supply are not to specifications but the optimal performance of the vacuums will be greatly reduced.
  • If you think you'll be on the lower end of the recommended CFM, we recommend going with a 48CFM unit as it will function much better than a 85CFM unit with only 50CFM of air available. 

This chart outlines the general CFM's of Air Compressors based on Horsepower. Note that this does not take into account loss of output due to length and size of hose running to end destination. 


Vacuum CFM's Requied Recommended Horsepower of Compressor
48 CFM Models 15 HP Minimum
85 CFM Models 25 HP Minimum
Dual Venturi / 185 Models 40 HP Minmium

    This vacuum works very well. I bought it to suck up aluminum sanding fines and am very happy with it so far.

    Overall: Good Wand Attachment Design: Poor

    Posted by Jim Hollingsworth on 16th Sep 2019

    Overall good performance. Wand has unattached copper compression ring that is easily lost. If lost, the attachments cannot be secured to the wand.
