Absolute HEPA filtered vacuums are designed for industrial plants, clean rooms, nuclear plants or wherever dangerous air or dust pollutants must be removed. Triple filtration provides 99.97% efficiency in retention of particles down to 0.3 microns in size. Absolute filters are a necessity when an extremely high level of cleanliness is required for the removal of asbestos, lead, and other toxic dusts. Each absolute filter at its final assembly, is tested and labeled by the manufacturer to the latest industrial standards and specifically to the UL-586 standard. Precision testing is performed with thermally generated D.O.P. (Doctyl Phthalate) aerosol according to Mil-Standard 282. The test machinery is specially designed to assure the guaranteed efficiency of 99.97% on a particle size of 0.3 microns. Each absolute filter is individually tested and certified by the manufacturer, with a prominently displayed label showing results of the actual D.O.P. test. 3-Stage HEPA Filtration System
