MegaVac – Combination of high suction & trouble-free filtration.

  1. Huge baghouse filter
    Super-efficient filter media will not easily blind, so there’s never a drop in performance as the storage canister fills. Now you can vacuum powders like carbon black, zinc oxide and pigments. An external shaker arm keeps the filters clean.
  2. In-line safety filter
    High efficiency pleated paper cartridges provide effective, extra protection to the operator. Upgrade to HEPA filters anytime without modification.
  3. Filter condition indicator
    Large, easy-to-read dial shows when to service the filtration system.
  4. Storage canister
    Holds 4.0 cubic feet. External storage options increase available storage to two cubic yards or more.
  5. New Silencer
    Greatly reduces the sound level to way below the labour code requirements. 
  6. Superior suction power
    The positive displacement vacuum pump attains 12” Hg. suction. That’s 50% higher than most competitive systems. The continuous duty pump is run slowly, so it’s exceptionally quiet & delivers tremendous service life.
  7. Complete portability
    Moves easily around your facility. Push it, pull it, hook it up to a crane or pick it up with a forklift using the built-in channels.
  8. Make it a central system
    The MegaVac makes an ideal vacuum source for a small central system. It may be connected to a pipe network up to 300 ft. long without modification.

Clean up fine powders fast:

Fine powders can migrate right through ordinary vacuum filters or blind filters so badly that you’re constantly cleaning or replacing them. MegaVac lets you take control of super fine powder.

The versatile MegaVac vacuum combines industrial class suction with a high performance, triple filtration system. Its positive displacement vacuum pump actually pulls harder as the job gets tougher. This means MegaVac can pick up material three times faster than vacuums using centrifugal pumps.

The exclusive triple filter is the real story. First, larger particulate is cyclonically separated with an internal baffle. Second, bag filters capture 99.99% of particles larger than 0.4 microns. And third, a safety filter provides backup protection that can be easily upgraded to HEPA efficiency.

MegaVac is designed for super fine powder. It makes short work of all your spills and cleanups without filter hassles and clogs.
