Central vacuums are fully integrated into your production process with fixed piping. Material goes straight from the shop floor to your disposal system.


Hook up your central industrial vacuum for multiple operators and watch those dirt piles disappear before your eyes.


As fixed units with a whole gamut of explosion control features, central vacs work well in facilities with combustible dust concerns.

Industrial central vacuum design considerations

Getting the highest value from a central industrial vacuum system means paying close attention to its design during the planning and installation phases. One of the most important considerations is how many users you expect to be using it at one time if it will be used only for cleaning. This will determine how many power units will be required, which has a significant impact on the initial cost of your system.

Another critical factor is where the inlets should be placed around your facility. In general, these should be placed in areas where they will be easily accessible for workers and allow for a slight overlap in the areas covered by the length of the hoses. The shorter hose you require, the easier it will be to use and store them. This means you should avoid having the inlets spaced too far apart. No matter what your facility’s needs may be, the experts at DuroVac can help you understand all the elements that go into your industrial central vacuum system design and suggest the optimal solutions for meeting them.
