Vibrant pigments – Clean suction

Customer: Axalta
Extracted material: Pigments, paint raw materials
Industry: Chemical
Vacuum cleaner: Compact mobile DustEx vacuum cleaner DS 1220 M (Zone 22)

Axalta is a global market leader in automotive painting. Looking at the numbers, we see that one out of two cars produced today in Europe have at least one paint layer from Axalta. Around 2,000 employees work in the Wuppertal factory to produce high-quality liquid paints and coatings.


To provide flexibility, pigments are added manually in electrodeposted coating production from big bags. The work station needs to be cleaned regularly, and the vibrant pigments need to be vacuumed. In addition, the interior of the conveyor system has to be thoroughly cleaned of all residues every time the product – paint – is changed. The powder-based pigments, some of which are organic, can also be explosive.


A Ruwac DS 1220 M (Zone 22) – equipped with a variety of nozzles and other accessories – can be used with flexibility for “normal” cleaning tasks, as well as for interior cleaning of the conveyor system.

The key criteria in the company’s decision to purchase the vacuum cleaner were the inherent explosion protection in its design, comfortable operation, and excellent reliability. Axalta also saw Ruwac's in-house service as another benefit.
