Insulation Removal Vacuums

These powerful, multi-purpose industrial vacuums make it easy to remove all types of damaged or contaminated loose-fill attic insulation – cellulose, fiberglass or rock wool. Equally useful in wall applications, they allow you to recycle scrubbed material to the blowing machine for mixing into the blend.

Our full line of Vac-Matic equipment includes models with engines ranging from 14 to 23.5 hp, inlet/outlets of four or six inches and suction rates from 3,840 lbs/hr to 9,250 lbs/hr.

*Vacuum bags are now available

Insulation removal bags are made from 100% polypropylene fabric allowing the bag to expand and breathe when insulation is vacuumed from an attic. These bags are different from others on the market due to a stronger polypropylene fabric and a more durable stitching. The bag holds approximately 75 cubic feet, or 300lbs, of insulation, and will fit on any vacuum with an output diameter less than 12 inches.
