Heavy Duty HEPA Vac™

A rugged HEPA quality vacuum!

High capacity cleaning for dusty environments!




What Is The Heavy Duty HEPA Vac?

EXAIR's new compressed air operated Heavy Duty HEPA Vac attaches to an ordinary 44 gallon (205 litre) open top drum to turn it into a powerful, HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) quality, industrial vacuum cleaner. Like the Heavy Duty Dry Vac, it's powerfully designed to move more material with less wear. In addition, the Heavy Duty HEPA Vac has been engineered to filter contaminants to HEPA requirements in dusty environments requiring frequent cleaning.

Why The Heavy Duty HEPA Vac?

Engineered for dusty environments that require regular cleaning, the HEPA filter is designed with high capacity in mind. Ordinary vacuums can clog up quickly in environments with an abundance of dust or particulates. An economical, easily maintained pre-filter stops the larger particles of debris while the HEPA filter handles smaller matter. All of EXAIR's filters are 100% tested in strict accordance to IEST-RP-CC-007 for minimum 99.97% filtration at the 0.3 micron level to meet HEPA standards. An optional filter protector is available to extend the life of the HEPA filter.

The Heavy Duty HEPA Vac does not use electricity and has no moving parts, assuring maintenance free operation. This eliminates the risk of electric shock often associated with electric shop vacs. Static resistant hose prevents painful shocks when vacuuming dry, dusty materials.

How does it work?

how the hepa vac worksCompressed air, normally 80-100 PSIG (5.5 – 6.9 BAR), flows through the inlet (1) into an annular plenum chamber (2). It is then injected into the throat through directed nozzles (3). These jets of air create a vacuum at the intake (4) which draws material in, accelerates it through the unit (5), and directs it to the bottom of the drum. The airflow passes first through the pre-filter and then through the 0.3 micron HEPA filter, trapping airborne particles. It then exhausts through the vent in the drum lid (6). The Heavy Duty Dry Vac unit (5) and vacuum tools (7) are built to resist wear.

Warning: Do not use with combustible dust.
