Lead, Mold & Asbestos Remediation
The Vactagon vacuums can safely contain dangerous contaminants without letting the operator come into any contact with them during the removal process; returning only clean air while containing and filtering harmful materials.
Lead, Mold and Asbestos dust can be one of the biggest health hazards. It can be breathed in or, in rare cases ingested in a number of settings. Once these hazardous dusts have entered the body, they can be absorbed into the bloodstream and circulated to major organ systems where damage and anemia will follow.
If not handling these dusts properly, they can be transferred to vehicles and homes where family members are exposed. High exposures to this dust on the job can put workers at risk for multiple or long term health effects, including severe blood cell damage, nervous system impairments, kidney problems, reproductive issues, and cardiovascular disease.
With the Vactagon drum top vacuums users can utilizing drum liners to collect the media, makes bagging the hazardous media considerably easier, as the bags can be taken away and disposed of avoiding any direct contact with the dust.
*The utilization of an inline drum filler or Cyclone separator may be suggested depending on the application the vacuum will be used in. Please contact us for further details or if you have any questions.
To better control this deadly dust, OSHA has updated its crystalline silica exposure limit. Unsurprisingly, compliance with the new standard is considerably more difficult.
