Product Details

**Each floor machine is built to order, so please allow 3-4 weeks for build time and delivery.**

This 17 inch Unico explosion proof floor buffer is classified for use in Class 1 Hazardous Locations, as described by the National Electrical Code (NEC). It comes with a bassine scrub brush that has an aluminum block and bronze wire throughout the fill to make it conductive. Pad holders and non-approved brushes will void the explosion proof capabilities of this machine. All brushes must be approved by the factory to avoid ignition. The machine itself comes with a 50' UL approved cord to assist you in scrubbing large controlled rooms or areas. *Note: No plug is provided with the cord.

All of our explosion proof floor machines are tested with respect to the acceptability of operation in the presence of flammable and explosive mixture of specific vapors and gases with air. Equipment classified for use in Class 1 locations is not necessarily acceptable for Class 2 locations as it may not be Dust-Tight or operate at a safe temperature when blanketed with dust. This is a 60 hertz machine, available in 110 or 220 volts.

Protection against explosions in hazardous locations requires that all electrical equipment exposed to the flammable or combustible atmospheres be of a type suitable for installation in such locations. Equipment should be installed in circuits with overload and short-circuit protection for established ratings. For explosion proof equipment as defined in the NEC, acceptability of use in hazardous locations will be endangered should openings or other alterations be made in the enclosure. Holding bolts of enclosing cases and threaded parts must be screwed tight. Continued acceptability of installation will depend upon proper maintenance.

Certified for use with Class 1, Group D hazardous materials - Atmospheres such as: acetone, acrylonitrile, ammonia, benzene, butane, 1-butanol, 2-butanol, n-butyl acetate, ethane, ethanol, ethyl acetate, ethylene dichloride, gasoline, heptane, hexane, isoamyl alcohol, isoprene, methane, methanol, methyl ethyl ketone, methyl isobutyl ketone, 2-methyl-1-propanol, naptha, octane, pentane, 1-pentanol, propane, 1-propanol, 2-propanol, propylene, styrene, toluene, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride, and xylenes.

To help assist in all your cleaning needs, we also offer an explosion proof vacuum, which can help to recover dust/debris in those sensitive controlled environments.
