Atrix HEPA filters (used in HEPA vacuums for mold, etc.), are 99.97% efficient at .3 microns or larger, and Atrix ULPA filters are 99.999% efficient at .12 microns or larger. In addition, these filters carry this efficiency in-situ (in situation), meaning they are calibrated and meet these efficiencies in harmony with the vacuum motor power. These vacuums are ideal for lead dust, wood dust, silica dust, lead paint, mold, rodent feces and other hazardous particles.
Hazardous particulate applications for Atrix vacuums include:
- Glove bag work, core sampling, mold remediation
- To clean and remove drywall, sheetrock, acoustic lead tile, lead dust, silica dust, extraction of welding fumes, lead paint, adhesives, wood dust, or any hazardous material
- Mold abatement
- Immediate containment of rodent droppings to prevent spreading of hantavirus (deadly to humans through contact)
Immediate Containment HEPA and ULPA Filtration
Atrix’s HEPA and ULPA filters are manufactured in the U.S and have an immediate containment component made with three layers of 56-pleat media (two glass layers and a cellulose layer). All hazardous particles are contained immediately within the filter cartridge, which is then disposed of without risk of exposure to the particles.
Variety of Filtration Sizes to Fit Your Application
Atrix carries filtration cartridges in a wide variety of sizes, with everything from a one-quart filter immediate containment cartridge to a 7-gallon filter immediate containment cartridge. Cartridge choices include HEPA filtration and ULPA filtration depending on the containment job at hand.
Safe Storage and Transport
Our Omega vacuums and High Capacity vacuums come with specially manufactured hoses and filter plugs that secure hazardous debris to minimize exposure during storage and transport. These product lines are manufactured in the U.S. for quality assurance.
