91914.tifThermoplastic Polyurethane Hose
U30-AP smooth interior is a clear all-thermoplastic polyurethane hose with yellow reinforced ABS helix. U30-AP has a smooth interior and is lightweight and highly flexible. The clarity of the hose allows easy visual check for blockages. An external ABS (non metal) helix provides added durability in applications where the hose is being dragged. Air Handling Systems,  Woodbridge, CT 800-367-3828  www.airhand.com

91915.tifPulse-Cleaned Industrial Vacuum
The FarrVac is a new pulse-cleaned industrial vacuum that reduces clogs to prevent the problems that result from loss of suction during cleaning. It operates without compressed air and may be used for everyday cleanup, as a dedicated dust collector for a single process machine, or as an accessory to an installed dust collector when replacing or emptying dust drawers or drums. Using pulse-cleaning vacuum control technology that works with ambient air to flush filters of dust and debris automatically, the heavy-duty unit offers lower initial and operating costs than many similar units requiring compressed air. It comes equipped with durable spun-bond polyester filters that last up to 10 times longer than conventional filters and capture dust particles to 0.1 μm.  Camfil Farr APC, Jonesboro, AR 800-479-6801 www.farrapc.com

92115.tifHEPA Vacuums
Eliminator wet/dry industrial vacuums are designed to withstand long-term exposure for use in a variety of abusive industrial applications. With a high-performance motor that delivers maximum suction power, and a durable, thermoplastic housing that resists corrosion, the Eliminator I and Eliminator II are well suited for general maintenance and specialty abatement applications that involve lead, mold, and asbestos. While the Eliminator II comes equipped standard for wet/dry collection, the Eliminator I is available in both a dry-only version and wet/dry version. Both models are equipped with three levels of filtration including a HEPA filter that removes 99.97% of materials, down to and including 0.3 μm (meeting the Lead RRP).  Nilfisk CFM, Malvern, PA 610-232-5469  www.nilfiskcfm.com
