As our latest offering in the asbestos range of vacuums, we are pleased to now offer a battery version of our most popular best selling vacuum, the Omega Asbestos Vacuum. This much anticipated edition of the vac is great for use in remote areas, those working at height, and for locations where power is not readily available.
This new fully tested and certified version of the popular Omega Asbestos Vacuum, is the ideal portable, lightweight choice for asbestos particulate clean-up. With all of the required safety features, it is perfect for shadow vacuuming under licensed or un-licensed conditions and meets the HSG264 standards of surveying. It is important in all of these specialist applications that the machine operator also wears the appropriate clothing and protection for the task in hand.
The Battery Omega Plus Type H Asbestos Vacuum features a high performance brushless digital motor with 30 minute run-time and a 1hr recharge time. It is powerful at 190 watts but quiet at only 67 decibels, and features 40cfm of suction. Built to the highest standards using high impact starex flame retardent polymer for durability and long life making it non-corrosive and chemically resistant. The vacuum comes complete with an EMI/RFI line noise filter and features overheat protection. Additionally, the vacuum features a permanently attached heavy duty retention plug to ensure safety when transporting and when not in use.
As a further safety precaution the vacuum is fitted with an indicator light which is connected to a sensor and circuit board within the unit. These new additions monitor the suction of the vacuum and if the air speed drops below 20m/s which is the minimum level for a safety vacuum, the light will illuminate. This indicates to the end user that there is a problem with the suction level and to check all accessories for blockages. If no blockages are found then the filter is full and will need replacing (see further details below).
The 1 US Gallon (3.8L) ULPA filter which comes as standard has an efficiency of 99.999% at 0.12 microns, meets the 'H14' filtration standard, and is fully compliant with BS EN 1822.
Each vacuum is fully tested and comes with 6 months DOP and electrical test certificates and the following accessories which can be conveniently stored in the lid of the vacuum case:
- 22 Volt Battery with 30 minute run-time
- 1hr Charger with 3 Cords - UK, USA & European

Included among the accessories with this vac is our Drilling Enclosure which is ideal for any asbestos surveying work that needs to be done. The enclosure fits onto the end of the hose and ensures that any particles are kept within the vacuum when drilling.
Also, with this vacuum, we include a Shoulder Strap that can be clipped onto the main body of the vacuum making it easy to carry and manoeuvre, the Battery Charger along with 3 different cords for re-charging the vacuum battery, a 10ft Stretch Hose allowing plenty of reach for the user, 2 Hose Plugs for ensuring any contamination is kept within the hoses when not in use, a Filter Exhaust Plug for the same reason, and 1 Clear and 1 Red Asbestos Waste Bag for use when you need to store or take the vacuum for re-testing.
DOP Test Registration
As an added benefit, your vacuum will also be registered on the system of our DOP testing partner company to keep a record of when your vacuum is due for an updated DOP test. This test is required by UK regulations in order for the vacuum to remain compliant. In addition to the DOP test, the vacuum will be PAT tested and a new filter will be fitted. If you require further information about this procedure, please get in touch with us.
In addition to the accessories that come with the vacuum, we have a selection of extra items that you may find useful. These include our Vacuum Accessory Pack (these should be used as single-use disposable items as they will not get decontaminated), our smart Deluxe Vacuum Carry Bag to store the vacuum in, extra supplies of Asbestos Waste Bags, and our Deluxe Vacuum Backpack Harness to enable the user to wear the vacuum instead of carry it.
Replacement and Spare Batteries are also available to purchase separately along with additional Battery Chargers.

Replacing the ULPA Filter
Please note, the filter in this vacuum should only be replaced by a trained and accredited professional qualified to handle asbestos waste and in an appropriate environment.
This can be carried out for you when you require by our partner company (or an alternative).
Decontamination & Re-Testing Procedure
As part of the UK legislation for the use of vacuums being used to clean asbestos, this vacuum must be re-certified every six months or when the filter is replaced, depending on which comes first (and also if the vacuum has been dropped or damaged in any way). As mentioned previously, your vacuum serial number will be registered onto our DOP testing partner company's system who will keep a record of when the vacuum is ready for re-testing.
You can either submit your vacuum directly with our partner company or use a local supplier for this process. The process includes disposal of the used filter and asbestos waste, decontamination of the machine, a brand new ULPA Filter being installed, a full re-rest with certification and shipping the vac back to you.
As a general guide price, this is done for £120 + vat including the filter through our testing company.
