The AV1000 by Ruwac is a pneumatic (air) powered vacuum designed to run continuously for any remote vacuum application where electricity is not available or desirable. The AV1000 contains no moving parts and is fully grounded, eliminating any shock hazards. At 150 CFM, it has more suction than an electric vacuum in the same class, while the inclusive sound suppression is so brilliantly engineered that you can’t even tell the vacuum is running -- It’s that quiet! Along with Ruwac's industry-leading MicroClean filtration, the AV1000 is fully upgradable to accommodate HEPA filters should you need an extra layer of filtration to purify the air.

MicroClean Filtration

This vacuum features Ruwac’s industry-leading MicroClean filtration system. Unlike other makers’ vacuums which use expensive cartridges that rely on gimmicky reverse pulse filtration, Ruwac's MicroClean filter outlasts and outperforms them with a proven pleated style and external manual shaker. Combined with more usable surface and a lower face velocity, this filter prevents dry materials from prematurely clogging inside. 99.99% efficient at 0.5 micron, the MicroClean's innovative design keeps filter integrity intact and in turn, ensures you have a long-lasting, low maintenance, dust-free operation that reduces costly filter replacements. All Ruwac MicroClean filters come with a 3-year guarantee.


Optional HEPA / ULPA Upgrade

In addition to Ruwac's premier MicroClean filtration technology, this vacuum also has the option to upgrade to HEPA or ULPA. Since the primary MicroClean filter is so efficient, only clean airs sees the filter and the result is both purified air and the elimination of costly HEPA replacements. Each HEPA filter is DOP tested and certified.

HEPA Efficiency: 99.997% @ 0.3 micron
