Nutraceuticals & Pharmaceuticals

Product Overview

Cross-contamination is a messy situation no nutraceutical or pharmaceutical manufacturer wants to find themselves having to deal with. To efficiently remove any dust during the manufacturing of nutraceuticals or pharmaceuticals, you need superior filtration, powerful vacuum power and the added comfort of quiet operation. Ruwac’s line of vacuums suited for use in nutraceutical and pharmaceutical manufacturing environments feature MicroClean filters specifically designed to collect and contain fine powders and dusts. The innovative pleated design allows filter area to be maximized within a confined space and are made out of only the best quality materials to ensure longevity and performance. Unlike cartridge or paper filters which need to be replaced, our filters are permanently installed and can be cleaned without disassembling the vacuums. Optional HEPA upgrades are also available!

  • Ruwac MicroClean vacuum filters are 99.9% efficient at removing particles down to and including .5 micron, preventing filter clogs and cutting down on costly filter replacements
  • Powerful yet quiet operation at no expense to vacuum ratings
  • Fully grounded operation to prevent static build-up
  • Modular compression cast composite housing will not dent, break or rust and is backed by our lifetime warranty
  • Foot-actuated 9 gallon dustpan allows for easy, dust-free emptying
