If you are a contractor or worker in an industrial organisation specialising in the removal of asbestos or lead or asbestos particles have been found in your home or work place you will need a vacuum cleaner that is up to the tough task of keeping you and your employees safe!

WARNING: Household vacuum cleaners must never be used where asbestos is or may be present, even if they have a HEPA filter. Only vacuum cleaners complying with the requirements of EN Standard 60335.2.69 2003 are to be used.

 The Nilfisk Type H IVB 5 vacuum cleaners were highly sought after vacuum cleaners purchased to do the tough job of removing asbestos and lead.


But firstly let the semi "automatic" filter cleaning mechanism go through several 20 second cycles, by starting the machine with your hand blocking off the hose inlet. This will make it "WHOOMP" loudly twice, and blow the dust from the pleats of the filters. If this hasn't been done whilst it's been used, just shallow pulses, with not much 'WHOOMP" the dust will have become packed tightly into the pleats.

When these come to the workshop, with reports of poor suction, that's what we do first, and most of the time great suction returns after half a dozen twenty second cycles.


DO NOT bash these filters on walls or the ground, the pleats will distort, and possibly split and dirt will be drawn into the motor compartment.


When removing the filters from the motorhead, keep the filter downwards, and pull the cartridge down, so dust falls away from the entrance to the motor, and doesn't contaminate inside the motor head.
