Let's get OSHA compliant

Industrial duty HEPA vacuums that help you comply with the new silica regulations.

PLG4-BHC-R1

DuroVac Silica Vacuums have 99.97% HEPA filters to keep your workers safe.

PLS Series is PowerLift® for Silica

Vacuum sand, gravels, and other silica based materials with
ease. The industrial duty PowerLift vacuums silica directly into a
1.5 yrd3 (1.15 m3) skip hopper.

The 30 Hp (23 kW) version fills its hopper in 20 minutes, while
the bigger cousin 40 Hp (30 kW) fills in less than 15 minutes.
You can NOT shovel that fast!

  • Collect silica based powders with the most trouble-free
    filters in the industry. We are so sure of our filtration
    systems that we guarantee our filters for two years.
  • The PowerLift® inlet deflector will never abrade out!
  • The ultra-heavy duty hopper is designed to work for years
    without flex and damage. Reliably tip out 30 times per day.

LifeTime™ Electric Vacuum for Silica
