Fanquip air fan removes asbestos and contaminants


Fanquip has developed a new fan technology – complete with safety monitoring system – specifically for use when handling asbestos and other substances that are harmful when airborne.

Designed and manufactured in Australia, the Fanquip Negative Air Fan is for applications where contaminated airborne particles must be removed to create a clean/safe working environment.

The fans have a “dust load monitoring system” and have been developed in response to strong calls from professionals holding specific licences for removal of product likely to cause harmful or toxic conditions when being handled.

The new fan technology is designed to keep workers safe on the job.

The Fanquip Neg Air Unit is configured with a HEPA filter, tested to AS 1324 to achieve minimum efficiency of 99.99 per cent. 

The unit is fitted with a failsafe dust load monitoring system that notifies the operator when the filter is dirty. It does so by means of two-stage alarm and flashing light.

The Negative Air Filter Fan operates on a 240V, 10 amp, and 3-pin plug electrical system.

It is manufactured to handle the toughest of environments such as building and construction sites, quarries, dilapidated old asbestos-roofed warehouses and sites undergoing toxic remediation.
