Inhalation of asbestos fibres can cause serious diseases including cancer and asbestosis, and many countries have regulations designed to protect people from exposure to hazardous asbestos fibres. Using the right equipment when working with asbestos can significantly reduce the risks to health.

A Type H vacuum cleaner is the only suitable way for cleaning up asbestos due to the special type of filter they use. Kerstar’s KV range of Type H industrial vacuum cleaners is specifically designed for dealing with hazardous dusts and debris including asbestos.

The KV range of vacuums is suitable for use in asbestos removal thanks to their robust build quality and three stages of filtration resulting in a filtration efficiency in excess of 99.995% at 0.6 microns.
