iQ Power Tools introduces the iQ426 HEPA Dust Extraction Vacuum. Engineered to meet OSHA’s silica dust requirements for working in construction applications, what makes the IQ 426 HEPA unique is the airflow tuned cyclone technology. Less than 1% of the dust reaches the filter, which means vacuum maintains optimum performance.

The IQ 426 HEPA has 4 stages of filtration: (1) large cyclone captures larger particle sizes; (2) small cyclones captures medium to small-sized particles; (3) filtration system captures the tiniest particles; and (4) HEPA. The first two stages utilize cyclonic filtration, which pull and capture different sized particles from the air stream, keeping them from reaching the final two stages.

The iQ426HEPA utilizes iQ’s Power Management System, offering the ability to control amp draw automatically. In addition to the auto start feature, the iQ Smart power management system automatically balances power the power tool receptacle and the vacuum, maintaining optimum tool and dust collection performance. This minimizes tripped circuit breakers and maximizes work performance.

The iQ 426 HEPA uses a certified HEPA filter capturing 99.97% of dust at .3 µm. This filter has been designed and tested to meet and exceed the global standards for dust extraction machines. The iQ 426 features a 10 gallon or 50-pound dust containment tub with an optional dust containment bag system, making dust disposal is easy, efficient, and safe.

The iQ 426 HEPA comes complete with a full array of nozzle accessories and a heavy-duty cart that provides protection and durability while maximizing job site portability. The unit boasts a 190 CFM, making it OSHA-compliant to be used with a 7 in. grinder, and a water lift up to 100 in. Other features include a 14 ft. anti-static hose, with simple but effective hose storage, and a weight of only 60 pounds.
