Food & Grain

The Food and Grain Industry faces a massive challenge in keeping their facilities not only a safe place to work, but to be OHSA and NFPA compliant. From local town grain silos to fortune 100 companies, all companies that generate organic combustible dust fall under the same NFPA and OSHA guidelines. NFPA 652 was established to help guide companies towards being safe and complaint with their combustible dust. Within NFPA 652, you will find that vacuums are the recommended solution to keep your facilities clean and safe. No matter how large or small, American Vacuum offers a wide range of solutions to keep your facility in compliance. From our small compressed air or single phase units to 20 operator central vacuum systems, American Vacuum has a full line of equipment to suit your specific need. With thousands of food production and handling facilities subjected to these rules, American Vacuum has a wealth of experience designing and building systems for the Food and Grain Industry.
