ONEIDA AIR SYSTEMS’ Dust Cobra was recently certified as a full-unit HEPA vacuum and meets the EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting rule requirements.
The Cobra has three times the air performance of most shop vacuums and its high-efficiency cyclonic separation captures 99 percent of the dust before it reaches the HEPA filter, according to the company. This helps to eliminate filter clogging. It also comes with an internal Filter Pulse Cleaning bar that lets you clean your filter during operation with a few pushes without removing the filter. Its standard size HEPA Cleanstream filter can be bought in most big-box stores. It runs on 110 volts and has an optional cart for portability. It weighs approximately 50 lbs. A certificate for contractors is included with every unit. Contact: Oneida Air Systems. Tel: 800-732-4065. www.oneida-air.com
