Ruwac’s MX360 and MX360EX Series: A Safer, Healthier Solution to Collecting Metal Additive Manufacturing Dust


Holyoke, MA, July 13, 2018 As a worldwide provider to metal additive manufacturing, Ruwac USA continues its mission in being the leader of safe, healthy industrial vacuum solutions through its line of immersion separation vacuums. With the newly introduced MX360 and MX360EX Series, we provide the only immersion separators available on the market featuring a complete self-contained vacuum system. Additive manufacturing environments using explosive or impact sensitive materials that may contain an ignition source (such as aluminum, titanium or zirconium) and other volatile dusts will not only benefit from eliminating the risk of an explosion, but keeping workspaces clean in the process.

Relying on decades of proven performance technology, the MX300 and MX360EX Series collects explosive or glowing media particles entering the vacuum, then immediately mixes them in a turbulent liquid bath. From there, moving air and liquid are rapidly forced onto the materials, submerging and neutralizing them in the process 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, guaranteeing a safe, explosion-proof work environment.

These immersion separation vacuums feature a large 12 gallon collection capacity and an easy-to-use stainless steel liquid discharge valve located beneath the main housing that acts as the primary source in releasing filtered contents. This eliminates any heavy lifting required for emptying out of the equation. Counterbalanced heavy duty casters and its two-stack design provide a maximum portability while the system’s external sight glass is its go-to detector of liquid levels. MX360EX Series vacuums are available with motors certified for Group E combustible dust. For the collection of smaller amounts of metal additive manufacturing dust, the MX100 and MX200 Series are also available.
