Filters That Actually Work!

    You just can't kill our filters.
  • Configure with pulse cleaning and overbags for reliable fibrous material handling.
  • We are so sure of our filtration systems that we actually guarantee our filters for up to three years.

It's Fully Configurable

It's A Positive Displacement Vacuum

  • A positive displacement pump pulls harder and delivers higher vacuum as the hose fills.
  • Achieve vacuum up to 700 mbar (24" Hg.)
  • Constant velocity means you'll move huge tonnage and easily support very long hoses.
  • A P.D. vacuum pump means you'll have a more reliable, "clog free" central vac
