Nilfisk industrial 4 gal (US) reservoir canister vacuum cleaner with a power output of 1000 Watts. Ideal for asbestos abatement


Nilfisk GD930-H industrial canister vacuum cleaner suitable for cleaning large surfaces. This vacuum has a HEPA filter and a 4 gal (US) (15L) reservoir to hold the bags which can contain asbestos, hazardous dust and dry rubbish.

Nilfisk manufacturer’s code: GD930-H

This vacuum is equipped with a HEPA filter (High-Efficiency Particulate Air filter) it captures at least 99.97% of the particles at least 0,3 µm in diameter in the air. This type of filter is even more efficient when capturing particles bigger than 0,3 µm. The HEPA filter must be set up behind the air inlet to protect the components inside the vacuum from hazardous dust. The engine is moreover protected by a second non-HEPA filter made of foam.

This vacuum cleaner is suitable for cleaning dry materials such as regular dust, soil, rubbish, ashes and sawdust. The HEPA filter on this vacuum is efficient against carcinogenic dust and dust carrying pathogenic agents. This device is ideal for asbestos abatement and any decontamination work. It is also suitable for general construction work and renovation as well as daily cleaning of large surfaces such as schools and health care facilities.

This canister vacuum has been design to be lightweight, compact and easy to move. The stainless steel reservoir is also fully airtight. It is surrounded by a non-marking black vinyl bumper to protect it from walls and furniture it may crash in. The lid, the handle and the base are made of ABS plastic. The switching on foot pedal saves the worker a lot of effort. This vacuum cleaner is equipped with a 50 ft (15 m) long power cord, which allows one to cover a large surface without having to relocate often the device.

This machine weighs a total of 16.5 lb (7.5 kg) which is why it features two fixed wheels and one swivel casters to ease its moving on all type of floors.

Included with the vacuum:

  • 1 1¼-in (32 mm) diameter; 6 ft (1.8 m) long flexible hose
  • 1 telescopic wand of 2 ft to 3 ft long (0,6 m to 0,9 m)

When activated, the two phase engine of this vacuum generates 53 dBA. Its minimal power supply requirement is 115V/60 Hz and it uses 8.7 A on a 15 Amps circuit. The engine’s 1,25 HP generates an airflow of 74 cfm and a water lift of 92 inWC or 23 kPa which gives you a power output of 1000 Watts.

Spare HEPA filters (item SAD4-F) and 4 gal (US) bags (item SAD4-S) are available under the accessories section at the bottom of the page. Please note that the bags come in a pack of 10 units and the HEPA filters are sold individually.

The DOP test (Dispersed Oil Particulate) has been designed to ensure the integrity and efficiency of HEPA filters in terms of airborne particles containment based on their holding capacity of dispersed oil particulate of 0,3 µm. This type of test is a requirement because it pinpoints any leaks on the HEPA filter, that is, through its accordion-shaped material, its frame or its seals. Note that if particles go around the HEPA filter, the DOP test has failed.

It is strongly recommended to always make a DOP test on the work site.

Please note that on asbestos abatement or mold decontamination sites, a DOP test is required:

  • Before the start of a new development
  • Every four weeks if the unit remains in situ during works
  • It is strongly advise to perform a DOP test on the site which is ready to start the work

HEPA filters are certified accordingly to current applicable regulations and a certification label shall be placed on the frame of the filter.
