Industrial HEPA Vacuums
We sell industrial HEPA filter vacuums designed for the safe and economical removal of hazardous particulate, wood shop dust, and fine powders. HEPA filters provide the highest level of vacuum cleaner filtration available. This level of filtration is important for people with allergies or asthma, in industrial clean up, or in hospital grade commercial cleaning.
Industrial High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuum cleaners contain filters that can trap extremely small particles, such as dust, providing efficient collection. Because HEPA filtration is so desirable, the term HEPA is used to market a wide variety of vacuum cleaners, and it is often applied in a highly misleading way that can make it difficult to choose HEPA filter vacuum cleaners that will provide the levels of filtration you're buying them for in the first place. Our HEPA vacuums have true HEPA filter and are ready for the most challenging jobs.
The HEPA filtration specification consists of two numbers that designate a very high level of filtration of very fine particles. The first number represents the filtration efficiency as a percentage and the second number is the particle size retained. For HEPA, filtration efficiency must be 99.97% and particles retained must be as small as 0.3 micrometers (formerly microns).The phrase “as small as” is important because it means that if all the particles were 0.3 microns in size, the filter would still capture and retain 99.97% of them (usually referred to as “filtration efficiency”). The term “down to 0.3 micrometers in size” does not refer to the same filtration performance, as it may refer to a mixture of particle sizes for the stated efficiency.
The ability to filter very small particles is a very important specification because small particles can easily reach the deepest recesses of the lungs and, according to the U.S. EPA, may cause a wide range of extremely negative health effects, such as aggravated asthma, acute respiratory symptoms including aggravated coughing and painful or difficult breathing, eye, nose, and throat irritation, respiratory infections and chronic bronchitis, decreased lung function, shortness of breath and lung cancer.
We have a variety of HEPA vacuums including Nilfisk, Atrix, Norkan, and Pullman Ermator Holt.
