The conditions necessary for an explosion or fire to occur are: the presence of a combustible substance, oxygen and an ignition source.ATEX certified Nilfisk industrial vacuum cleaners eliminate the third parameter: the trigger. The vacuum cleaners are designed to prevent the triggering of any source of ignition, making vacuum cleaning operations safe.
