Powerful, resistant, versatile

The range of Heavy Duty Industrial Vacuum Cleaners was born to face any challenge. Cement plants, foundries, steelworks: material recovery is important for safety, cleaning and cost control. The use of an industrial vacuum cleaner reduces machine downtime during production and allows maintenance of work tools, ensuring their maximum efficiency. In heavy industry, the structures and equipment need a careful care. Heavy industry must use powerful cleaning machines, able to tolerate heavy work rhythms, difficult environments, and must be able to fit perfectly into the production cycle.
The high power range in three thoughts? A minimal maintenance, a simplicity of use that facilitates its integration in the production plant and an extraordinary power. This range of high vacuum vacuums guarantees you to make a purchase quickly amortized.
Made in Italy with an extremely resistant material, these powerful vacuum cleaners resist to stress and abrasion.

The industrial vacuum cleaner SL is proposed in two models:
– the SL 22/65, which develops 22kW of power, 5000 mmH²0 of water lift and 1600 m³ of air flow;
– the SL 37/65, which develops 37kW of power, 8500 mmH²0 of water lift and 1600 m³ of air flow.

SL Industrial vacuum Cleaner is a fixed system. Connected to a hopper, it is suitable for heavy applications. This high powered vacuum cleaner can be positioned with a crane or forklifts thanks to its specific hooks. SL line is extremely strong and powerful.

The hopper has a maximum capacity of 1140 lt. The machine is discharged through a butterfly valve with a diameter of 400 mm, manually or pneumatically operated.

The filtering system is made of polyester felt filtering sleeves with inner basket, a polyester safety cartridge to protect the pump, a metallic safety cartridge on the air cooling circuit of the pump (only for AV models). The machine proposes also an automatic timed system for filter cleaning with a automatic reverse jet pulse.

The level sensor allows an automatic stop of the machine when the container is full.
This machine model can be certified according to the ATEX Z22 standard.
