The plastics and resin industry is a $90 billion-a-year industry in the United States with thousands of plants stretched across all 50 states. With over 1 million jobs tied to the industry, OHSA has paid a great deal of attention to the use and handling of plastics and resins.
Many plastics contain crystalline silica, which can be harmful to inhale and are considered combustible. Industrial vacuums provide a safe and reliable method to keeping your facility safe and in compliance with NFPA 652 and the EPA Silica rules.
From the transport of raw plastic pellets to the machining and extruding of finished products, vacuums can be used from start to finish. Vacuums are also a great way to avoid slip hazards or cross-contamination that can occur with excessive dust/material lying around.
American Vacuum offers a complete line of services and vacuums for the plastics industry that come in a variety of shapes and sizes for any plastic, paper, and resin collection or trim recovery application.
