ATEX and Type H industrial vacuums are stars of the show at Interclean

The Kerstar team spent last week at Interclean in Amsterdam and reported that its ATEX certified and Type H vacuum cleaners for hazardous dust were the resounding stars of the show.

Interclean provided a perfect opportunity for the team to meet with many of Kerstar’s existing distributors, as well as potential new distributors and end-users. “It has been almost three years now since Filtermist acquired Kerstar and this is the first time we have been able to meet with our distributors face to face due to the pandemic,” commented Product Manager Ben Kimpton.

“Whilst technologies like Teams have been extremely helpful, there is huge value in meeting with people in person and being able to give them hands-on demonstrations of some of our key products.”

Visitors to the stand were particularly interested in finding out more about the KAV and KEVA ranges which can both be provided as Type H and/or ATEX certified models. These vacuums can be used in a wide range of industries including additive manufacturing, asbestos removal, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical.

“We have distributors throughout Europe, as well as in New Zealand and Singapore. We are actively supporting our existing distributors with opportunities in additional industrial markets, as well as looking to extend our distributor network into territories and markets where we don’t have a presence at the moment. Interclean enabled us to have a number of very interesting conversations which we will be following up over the coming weeks.”

Kerstar vacuums have been manufactured in the UK since 1959 and are built to last. The range is designed to allow users to be able to maintain their machine for as long as they want – as Ben explains:

“We are very conscious that many manufacturers build their products in a way which forces users to replace them when parts wear out. Our approach is far more sustainable than that – we build our vacuums in a way that means all wearable parts are accessible. This means the machines can be serviced and worn parts can be replaced if necessary - saving end-users money and resulting in less waste going to landfill.”
