The "Lung Protection" Vacuum System

Ideal For Disposing Hazardous Dust & Debris

The BIG PROBLEM that cleaners have when they use a vacuum cleaner:

When vacuuming, you’re picking up all sorts of things. These are things that can be divided into 3 categories:

  1. Harmless Stuff: These are things that are relatively safe for you to handle or come into contact with (e.g. dust)
  2. Potentially Harmful Stuff: These are things that you don’t want to touch or breathe in. (e.g. silica dust, concrete dust, saw dust, pest droppings, etc.)
  3. Unknown Stuff: Things that you can’t see, and you don’t know that you’re picking up!

The problem occurs when the vacuum tank fills up and has to be emptied.

Often, this task gets put off or neglected because it’s a “messy” job and people avoid emptying and cleaning out a vacuum tank because of what might have collected inside.

When you’re cleaning someone else’s space, and you don’t know what you’re picking up, you have to be careful about how you handle what you’re throwing out.

Most people take their canister vacuum and tip the tank over a dumpster or waste container to empty it out.

While most of the garbage may be going into the dumpster, the fine particles that were picked up with the vacuum cleaner become airborne again.

This usually leads to:

  • The newly cleaned floors are getting dusty again…
  • The area around the dumpster/waste container is getting dusty…
  • You and your clothes are getting dusty!

Why does this matter?

The problem is, when the fine dust particles become airborne, you breathe those particles which could be very dangerous for you or your crew’s health.

For example, silica dust which is also known as deadly dust, (produced from grinding, sanding, drilling, etc.) is very fine and easy to inhale.

And if inhaled, it could lead to very serious, long-term health hazards such as scarring and damaging of lung tissues, lung diseases like bronchitis, scoliosis, and even lung cancer.

The chances of developing these diseases also increase with higher, longer exposure – especially in industries like construction.

The other problem is that after dumping the contents of your canister, the tank has to be thoroughly cleaned.

In order to do this safely, you need to wear the appropriate PPE to keep you and anyone handling the vacuum safe!

So how does Centaur solve this problem?

At Centaur, we recognize the seriousness of these potential problems and we’ve worked hard to find solutions to them.

With our Centaur Falcon-5, we have introduced 2 unique features to address these problems head-on:

  • Direct-To-Garbage Bag Deposit System:

When you are dry vacuuming, anything you pick up goes straight into a heavy-duty garbage bag.

All you have to do to dispose of it, is to take off the motor-head, pull out the bag, tie it up and throw it out:

  • There is no “handling” of the materials…
  • The tank stays clean…
  • And the dust is contained! No need to worry about handling potentially toxic materials, or the recirculation of harmful dust particles.
  • Large Capacity HEPA Filter:

When vacuuming at a construction site for example, there is usually a lot of fine dust produced (i.e. from grinding, sanding, drilling, etc.). Those particles are captured by the large HEPA vacuum filter, adding an EXTRA layer of filtration to ensure that the harmful, finer particles stay contained in the vacuum cleaner and don’t escape back into the air you are breathing.

In summary, the benefits of the Centaur Falcon-5 vacuum include:

  • Drastically reducing the risk of breathing in harmful substances and therefore the associated long-term health impacts.
  • Keeping you and your crew safe.
  • Hassle-free cleaning and an easy to maintain vacuum cleaner.
  • Saving you time and labor costs by helping you be more efficient.
