Portable Vacuum Makes A Clean Sweep

Source: VAC-U-MAX

Techneglas, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, manufactures glass panels for television screens at its plant in Pittston, Pa. In the past, operators would manually sweep up dust and broken glass that accumulated beneath the company’s large annealing ovens (or lehrs). However, this created airborne dust that caused panel defects. To solve this problem, the company worked with an industrial vacuum supplier to install a portable industrial vacuum in the Pittston plant.
