Recovery & Disposal

A well designed product considers all the aspects of the domain where it is supposed to excel. A Tiger-Vac vacuum cleaner doesn't only help you recover waste material, dusts and liquids: it also features different ways to dispose of, manipulate, neutralize or recuperate the material you've recovered.



Dry only vacuum cleaners

Tiger-Vac's dry only vacuum cleaners have been designed to recover dusts, powders, chips, shavings, etc. If liquids need to be recovered while using a dry only unit or if more than one combustible or flammable dusts will be recovered, we recommend the use of one of our immersion separators or interceptor tanks.

Wet and dry vacuum cleaners

Our wet and dry vacuum cleaners allow the operator to recover both liquids and powders with the same unit.

However, Wet and Dry vacuum cleaners are not designed to recover mud (mixture of liquid and soil). Mud would obstruct filters and damage motor causing the loss of the vacuum cleaner.

Our detachable tanks range in size from 20 to 160 liters (5.28 gal to 42.25 gal) and are available in stainless steel or powder coated, with or without wheels for maneuverability.




Tilting Cart

Tilt-CartMany of our vacuum cleaners are equipped with a tilting cart for easy maneuverability and for quick disposal of recovered materials. A lever located on the the cart allows the recovery drum to be tilted backwards without having to remove the powerhead. Tilting carts are available in stainless steel or powder coated.



Hydraulic Cart (HY-C)

EXP1-25-ac-HYCEXP1-25-ac-HYC_lowThe Hydraulic cart (HY-C) allows for the unit to be lifted 92 cm (36") above ground so that contents can be emptied into a recovery container for disposal. The upper tray of the cart allow sufficient room for the power unit and another drum, such as a recovery unit, an interceptor or a tool bin.

Hydraulic carts are available with heavy-duty powder coat finish or stainless steel.


Interceptor Tank

Interceptor tanks can be used when you have a dry only vacuum cleaner and you wish to recover liquids. They can also be used as an auxiliary tank for large amounts of recovered material.

Drain Valve
