HEPA FILTER SYSTEM - Background, Filter Information
Filtration - the Ultimate Filter System?
The AIRFlow HEPA Filter
System includes a HEPA Efficiency Pleated Cartridge Filter and your choice

specifically designed to provide the performance required
for the proper operation of a Dust Director ®
Dry Use + HEPA Rated + Longer Life with Applied PTFE
Non-stick Dust Release & Water Shredding PTFE
Membrane enhances the filter's capabilities in several
areas, including filtration efficiency (meets or exceeds
a HEPA rating), cake release, cake prevention,
"extreme" service life.
A filter's base
fabric is typically made of woven or
felted synthetic fibers, natural fibers or
fiberglass. The membrane is a mechanically applied
treatment (extremely thin, from 0.4 to 10.0 mils) that
requires the filter's fabric for support.
of the Expanded PTFE in Dust Collection Applications:
to help meet EPA-mandated limits on exhaust emissions
while providing the following benefits:
Provides surface filtration rather than depth filtration
(which is provided by conventional filter fabric). Surface
filtration keeps the captured dust particles away from
becoming impregnated into the base fabric, thus reducing fabric abrasion and extending
the filter's service life. With longer service
life you won't need to change the filter nearly as often
which reduces your replacement cost and downtime during
Reduce pressure drop, cut energy (motor) costs.
The membrane typically prevents pressure drop across the
filter by about 10 percent. This in turn
cuts wear on the vacuum's motor(s) while reducing power
consumption by as much as 33 percent!
Extreme Dust Cake Release / Extreme Dust Cake
Prevention. The expanded PTFE membrane is slicker
than a conventional filter fabric and it easily releases
any dust cake during cleaning.
Most people purchase a vacuum cleaner based on
improvements or features of the vacuum cleaner.
The vacuum's cartridge filter alone, applied with a PTFE
membrane, will increase the vacuum's performance by as
much as 25 percent - thereby increasing production rates
for your entire operational process.
Extreme & Diverse Applications. The expanded
PTFE membrane can withstand the most abusive of
applications, dry or wet, and temperatures up to 600°F
--- highly suitable for high-temperature applications
such as when removing hot mastics. Additionally,
as stated, the filter is complete washable.
While the PTFE membrane increases the filter's and
vacuum's cost, the initial cost is offset by improved
filtration efficiency, vacuum performance and longer
CLEAN EXTREME FILTER COLLECTION BAGS (3 included per vacuum):
With a Clean
Extreme Filter Bag installed you can expect to collect large volumes of silica dust -
to the tank's inlet port - without incurring suction drop
or without the filter bag tearing or accidentally bursting inside the tank.
How many times are you stopping
to clean or
maintain the vacuum's filter or having to empty the tank
all too often?
With a Clean Extreme Filter Bag installed, suction power
stops when dust begins to exit through the tank's 2" inlet
fine powders collected and contained within the Clean Extreme
Filter Bag will not cause blinding (i.e. the powder will not
cake the bag's lining, suction is not diminished.) When
vacuuming any type of power, for hours at a time and you happen to notice suction
drop . . . With a
Dust Director Vacuum you simply
turn off the vacuum, doing so will cause the Clean Extreme
Filter Bag to deflate; when you turn the vacuum on the
bag inflates and suction resumes 100% ~ Guaranteed. Are
dry and you come across wet concrete, stone or mortar? No
problem - Clean Extreme Filter Bags work even better when the
surface is damp! Besides
maintaining suction and collecting large volumes of
powder without suction drop, Clean Extreme Filter Bags also
collect: Moist debris, sharp objects and hot mastics ALL AT
THE SAME TIME. Additionally, when you remove the
filter bag you'll notice that the inside that the inside of
the tank, the outside of the bag and the HEPA cartridge
filter are "clean":
Extreme Filter Bags: Collects anything - powders to

Final Rule to
Protect Workers from Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica
engineering controls (tools and equipment) to keep workers from
breathing silica dust.
What is Respirable
Silica Dust? These tiny particles (known as "respirable"
particles) can penetrate deep into workers' lungs and cause
silicosis, an incurable and sometimes fatal lung disease.
Crystalline silica exposure puts workers at risk for developing lung
cancer and other possible debilitating respiratory diseases such as
chronic obstructive pulmonary and kidney disease.
How Much Respirable
Silica Dust is Safe to Breath? OSHA has issued their Final
Rule to curb these respirable and kidney diseases in America's
work force by limiting a worker's exposure to respirable crystalline
silica to 50 micrograms per cubic over an 8-hour shift.
Does 50 Micrograms of Respirable Silica Dust Look Like? A
good example may be one of those small paper packets of sugar or
artificial sweeteners found in restaurants.
When used to demonstrate
the dust concentration inside a building, the size of a football field
(100 yards x 53 yards x 14' high). The weight of one of those
little packets is 53 micrograms, which is slightly over the PEL
(permissible exposure limit) for Silica Dust of 50 micrograms.
Such a fine dispersing
of dust at this concentration would essentially be
invisibility. It is also enough to put the workers at risk by
contaminating the work area --- the size of a football field x 14'
Respirable Silica Dust Law - Effective: 23 June 2016.
Since 1999, the Dust
Director® has been involved with various organizations aimed at
improving the health and safety on construction sites. On a
meeting, dated 23 April 2014, the Dust Director® was invited to
participate in a discussion about OSHA's upcoming Silia Dust
Standard. Besides the representatives from OSHA, the following
organizations were also present:
CPWR (Center for
Construction Research and Training)
university research scientists and professors
National Safety Coordinator for the International Masonry
Vice President of the International Union of Bricklayers and
Allied Craft Workers (BAC).
meetings, by the use of various air testing meters,
NIOSH determined that the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL)
of a worker being exposed to silica dust should not be
greater than 93.4. [On
record, NIOSH tested the Dust Director® System (dust
control guard and vacuum), and determined the complete
system "provided the greatest reduction of
capturing silica dust at 94% than any other vacuum and
dust guard that was tested.]
to simplify the understanding and importance of
containing silica dust exposure, OSHA and all parties
involved, have adopted the buzz phase of "visible
dust," as their measurement of whether silica
exposure is being sufficiently contained for both the
workers and public.
Left to Fly from a Skyscraper ~
interesting case study was provided by a Detroit contractor who
was tuck pointing at a high rise office building in downtown
Detroit, 35 floors above
the sidewalks. A summarization of his findings on silica dust
exposure is as follows:
workers were tuck pointing an office building, 35 floors up,
without the use of dust control
thinking was, to leave the silica fly and let it disburse into
the sky . . . that it wouldn't harm anyone or anything
safety coordinator for the company, he monitored the air
quality of his workers
His air quality
readings were as follows:
> Employee "A" was working in air quality
that measured 85 times over the NIOSH established PEL
> Employee "B", working downstream from
employee "A", was receiving a concentrated dose of
dust as his air quality measured 135 times over the PEL!
case study shows how "visible dust" may be seen, more importantly
moral obligation we need to take for our construction workers,
the public, and the environment.

Motor Head Gasket. Beneath the motor head of every Dust
Vacuum & Cyclone is a poured-in-place
urethane gasket that is used to ensure
a positive airtight seal between the motor head and its tank. Commonly
used shop vacuums and even higher priced vacuums will use foam or
nothing at all.
gasket ensures against dust leakage into your work area and prevents
even the slightest loss of vacuum which would naturally reduce suction
power. Many wonder how the suction of a Dust Director ®
Vacuum and Cyclone seems so much more powerful than other brands, one of
the reasons is the urethane gasket.
Director's Increase in Suction Power?
While a complete Dust Director
System (vacuum and dust guard) have been successfully monitored by
NIOSH to operate within the guidelines of their established PEL, a
very important feature in all of the Dust Director® Vacuums
and Cyclones is the poured-in place urethane gasket.
some vacuums use foam as a gasket, 90% of all vacuums use nothing! This startling
statistic includes vacuum's that cost well over $2000
dollars. While the Rigid vacuum, for example, does not use
any type of gasket (while leaking profusely), the consensus
among morally conscience contractors is a
Rigid vacuum is simply not designed to be used for silica dust
vs. the Competition:
On a visit to masonry
tuck pointers in Chicago and Detroit, the suction power of the Dust
Director® Vacuums was compared to the Bosch 3931 Airsweep, Hilti
VC20 and Fein Turbo I vacuums. Simply by placing our hand over
the inlet port of each vacuum, the following was the agreed
Model DD1000: 15% greater suction vs. Bosch &
Fein, 25% greater suction vs. Hilti
Model DD1200: Easily 20% greater suction than the
Director® models where considerably lighter than Bosch,
Fein and the Hilti vacuums.
