HEPA Vacuum Loaders to Contain Toxic Dust and Asbestos

November 26th, 2017 | in Asbestos

Dust build up in factories and industrial facilities are dangerous in considerable ways. Dust can be contaminated with many toxic heavy metals including lead and asbestos which pose immense threats to the health and well-being of people working in industrial environments. Many factories, especially ones that were built years before asbestos was known to be such a threat, have dangerous dust particles floating around, undetected.

The hazardous materials present in the dust can become airborne when cleaned up improperly, which leads to even more health and safety problems for employees of the factories or residents at home. Proper engineering and house-keeping practices along with state-of-the-art equipment are required for proper plant dust-down or cleanup. Enviro-Vac has been using HEPA vacuum loaders since 1976. We know that these HEPA filtered vacuum systems are perfectly compatible for hazardous material abatement and toxic dust removal. Enviro-Vacuum loaders are HEPA filtered and designed to meet combustible dust requirements.


HEPA certification means that all air sucked into the system goes through a multi-stage filtration and spin process that removes all dangerous material. All waste is automatically bagged and processed; it’s done in a method that’s designed to contain any and all toxic dust, asbestos, or any other dangerous particulate. The bagging system prevents any further emission of hazardous dust so that it can be safely removed from the area never exposing workers to the material.

If you’re looking for someone to handle asbestos abatement, or to remove any health-threatening dust at your home or business, Enviro-Vac is the company to call. We have over 40 years of experience, working in all climates and conditions, and that’s something you can rely on.
