Ruwac USA has released a new line of immersion separation vacuums, the NA35 series, featuring a complete self-contained vacuum system. Suitable for use with explosive or impact-sensitive materials used in metal additive manufacturing such as aluminum, titanium or zirconium, the vacuums reduce the risk of explosion and keep workspaces safe and clean.

The immersion separation vacuums collect media particles entering the vacuum and immediately mixes them in a turbulent liquid bath. Moving air and liquid are then rapidly forced onto the materials, submerging and neutralizing them in the vacuum’s hydrophobic and oleophobic water-filter system. This process stops already-contained materials from finding any ignition source that may be introduced into the vacuum, ensuring a safe, explosion-proof work environment.

The NA35 HD-110, one of the models in this series, features an easy-to-use, stainless-steel liquid discharge valve located beneath the main housing that acts as the primary source in releasing filtered contents, eliminating any heavy lifting required for emptying. Counterbalanced heavy-duty casters and a two-stack design provide maximum portability while the system’s external sight glass remains in place to indicate liquid levels.
