Industry-Specific Applications

Combustible Dust/Hazardous Locations
OSHA maintenance and housekeeping guidelines recommend the use of properly equipped vacuums to decrease the risk of combustible dust fires and explosions. Nilfisk’s full line of certified single- and three-phase, electric and air-operated explosion-proof vacuums facilitates compliance with OSHA’s Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program (NEP).


Food Manufacturing
Industrial HEPA-filtered vacuums can meet specific food safety hazard and quality demands such as limiting cross-contamination in production lines, increasing compliance with the FDA’s GMPs and the HACCPs, and preventing allergen-related product recalls. Nilfisk offers a range of vacuums and accessories to support compliance with portable, intermittent-duty models to process-integrated and food-grade hose and color-coded brushes and nozzles.


Facilities can significantly reduce the risk of contamination and meet ISO standards by utilizing portable vacuums for general maintenance and hazardous material spills. In addition, integrating vacuums with process equipment allows users to reclaim valuable potent compounds and active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). Nilfisk vacuums offer specialized features, including HEPA/ULPA filtration and Safe-Pak collection, to ensure safe, easy collection and disposal of hazardous materials.
