  • Specifications

This specially adapted critical filter vacuum system recovers liquid mercury & cleans mercury contaminated dry & liquid soil & air.


All MRS units feature a 115 v or 220 v AC/DC air-cooled motor which is also usable as a high performance, standard vacuum cleaner when the special filter modules are removed. Each unit comes with the basic tools to handle most clean-up jobs.

Mercury has emerged as one of the most toxic contaminants in common use today. People who work with mercury or mercury oxides run serious health risks if strict cleaning procedures are not enforced using qualified equipment. This contamination can occur not only in the factory stations, where mercury or mercury oxides are being used, but also in less obvious situations such as technical laboratories, medical and dental labs, control rooms or dental offices. The Minuteman MRS Series is designed to control this danger & the MRS Maxi-GuardTM is intended for situations wherein although the mercury threat is potentially serious, the volume of the contaminants is relatively small.


Our Mercury Vacuums feature a unique modular 4 element system that allows user-tailoring to fit almost any need. Typical uses for this system are found in dental and research labs, shipboard applications and in instrument manufacturing facilities.
