The Lead Vac UPLA lead vacuum from Minuteman is equipped with a U.L.P.A. (Ultra Low Penetration Air) filter which is 99.999% efficient at 0.12 microns. The non-woven, embossed, polyester filter bag provides 50% more filtration area than standard bags, and the state-of-the-art polypropylene lid assembly is acoustically designed to minimize noise down to 74 dba.

Conventional vacuum cleaners exhaust unseen lead particles back into the environment, compounding the existing hazard. The Lead vacuum has been specifically designed for safe and efficient daily use in commercial and industrial sites, the company said.
