Traditional industrial cleanup tools for hazardous and nuclear materials can result in unsatisfactory worker exposure. Patented SafeVac, specifically engineered to ALARA principles, is the solution:
* Maximize operator safety.
* Minimize maintenance.
* Minimize secondary waste generation.
* Eliminate nuclear criticality concerns.
SafeVac utilizes a unique three-step collection method which has an efficiency rating of 99.999% on particles down to 0.12 µm.
Step 1 Cyclonic separation with up to 95% efficiency on particles 0.2 µm and larger.*
Step 2 HEPA filter with 99.97% efficiency at 0.3 µm.
Step 3 ULPA exhaust filter with 99.999% efficiency at 0.12 µm.

The cyclonic separator precipitates particles 0.2 - 5 µm and greater into a rigid, translucent container for ease of disposal - translucent to allow the operator to monitor fill levels. Maintenance of the system is greatly reduced over traditional methods because the vast majority of particles are removed from the air stream before reaching the two progressively finer exhaust filters. These filters virtually eliminate contamination of the vacuum motor and reintroduction of material back into the work environment.
Three-step, progressively finer particle removal protects and prolongs the life of the most important filter, the exhaust filter. A maintained clean exhaust filter ensures that contaminated material does not re-enter the work environment.
