Dustless® Certified HEPA Wet Dry Vacuum

Just because a vacuum has a HEPA filter, doesn’t mean it meets government guidelines and will do an effective job of dust collection and protect you from harmful dust in the air. You need to be careful, because it could cost you up to $37,500 in fines, if you’re not using the proper equipment. The Dustless Certified HEPA Wet Dry Vacuum meets or exceeds all government guidelines from the EPA, OSHA and NIOSH for any type of work involving hazardous materials. Smart dust control starts at Dustless Technologies.

HEPA Filter Cost Comparison

The cost for replacement filters is be a big factor when choosing a HEPA vacuum, yet the manufacturers don’t give you much information on how often you need to change the filters. That is because there are so many variables affecting filter life.

Be leery of clean room and office equipment HEPA vacuums being sold for construction applications. Without a pre-filter, you will run up a huge tab in HEPA filters. In one analysis, it cost $10,000 in HEPA filters to process 1,000 lbs of dust through a HEPA vacuum designed for office applications compared to just $1,000 to do the same with a Dustless Wet/Dry HEPA Vacuum. Dustless Technologies – smart dust control.

The WunderBag™ micro pre-filter – smart dust control

This micro pre-filter has earned its name – it is truly wonderful and amazing. Think about this: A HEPA filter captures particles down to .3 micron and a WunderBag captures particles down to .5 micron. Considering that a micron is approximately 1/100th of the width of a human hair, the difference between .5 and .3 micron is virtually nothing. That is why the WunderBag™ does such an excellent job of extending the life of a HEPA filter. Use a WunderBag™, in conjunction with a HEPA filter, inside a Dustless HEPA Wet Dry Vacuum, and the HEPA filter hardly ever sees any dust. In fact, you can extend the life of a HEPA filter as much as 30 times longer with the use of a WunderBag™. Smart dust control for smart contractors.

Dust Shrouds

Dustless® Technologies offers several types of dust shrouds for smart dust control with hand grinders. The Dustie™ is the most economical dust collection solution. It features a flex-flange mounting collar that makes it very easy to mount on to all popular makes of hand grinders. Simply slip it in place and tighten a band clamp. The Dustie™ is made of flexible, lightweight plastic that permits the operator to work at a variety of angles while capturing 99% of the airborne dust.

You can trim the front edge of a Dustie™ down with a pair of shears or ban saw and attach an optional cover plate to make a dust shroud suitable for decorative concrete cutting, tuck pointing and crack chasing.

The next step up in dust shrouds is the DustBuddie®. A smart dust control system. The DustBuddie® is made of clear polycarbonate for improved visibility, and it features a brush skirt on the working edge that provides a cushioning affect for better operator control, smoother grinding and better dust collection. The DustBuddie® also features a removable front lip for grinding up against a wall.

EPA RRP Lead Dust Control

Minimizing the dust can be done with a variety of tools. At the center of a contractor’s dust control system is a certified HEPA vacuum that collects dust particles down to 0.3 micron. When shopping for a vacuum, contractors should be sure to get one that is recommended for hazardous materials. Read the fine print on the box. Some vacuum manufacturers offer a retrofit HEPA filter for their traditional shop vacuums, but many of these will not pass field inspection, so it is wise to acquire a vacuum designed with tighter tolerances to retain HEPA integrity.
