EPA on HEPA Vacuums
The EPA provides parameters for the vacuum. The EPA says, “Renovation firms should look for a vacuum cleaner that was designed to be operated with a HEPA filter, rather than a shop vacuum that can be fitted with a HEPA filter in place of the original basic filter. A vacuum retrofitted with a HEPA filter is not necessarily properly sealed or designed so that all of the intake air goes through the HEPA filter.”
Dustless® Certified HEPA Wet Dry Vacuum for Jobsite Dust Control
A significant benefit the Dustless Wet/Dry HEPA vacuum delivers is the ability to go from dry to wet operation without stopping to take out the HEPA filter or reconfigure the vacuum. An interior baffle/wall keeps water away from the HEPA filter. We like to say it is "idiot proof." If someone doesn't realize it is a HEPA vacuum and uses it for cleaning up a spill, they don't cost you an expensive filter.
Dustless Wet Dry Vacuums
Compare shop vacuums and you'll find the Dustless Wet Dry Vacuum has unique features that makes it a breed apart. The patented system allows you to clean the inner and outer filters without opening the canister. Dust stays inside for a cleaner job site. You can also go from dry to wet vacuuming without fear of getting the filter wet. A baffle/wall and check ball protect them at all time. Even the WunderBag™ micro pre-filter retains its strength when wet. The large, 16 gallon capacity canisters means you can go longer between emptying. Smart dust control for smart contractors.
The WunderBag™ micro pre-filter – smart dust control
Save money with the amazing WunderBag™ from Dustless Technologies. Designed to work in both the Dustless Wet Dry Vacuum and the certified Dustless HEPA Wet Dry Vacuum, this micro pre-filter bag captures particles down to .5 micron. That is extremely close to a HEPA filter, which captures down to .3 microns. The WunderBag™ can save you lots of money by greatly extending the life of your more expensive HEPA filter. A HEPA filter can last up to 30 times longer when used with a WonderBag™. At $10 for a WonderBag, and $150 for a HEPA filter. You do the math! Smart dust control from the industry leader – Dustless Technologies.
Dust shrouds for hand grinders come in a variety of styles and models. The Dustie®, from Dustless Technologies, gives contractors an economical dust control method that easily fits onto virtually any make or model of hand grinder. This plastic shroud is flexible, which helps keep the edges flat to the surface for a better seal and superior dust collection. The DustBuddie® is more of a professional grade dust shroud that features a removable front lip for grinding up against walls, a clear polycarbonate body for improved visibility, and a brush skirt that helps promote better operator control when cosmetics are more important. Dust removal is time consuming and expensive. Use smart dust control tools.
