Protect First Responders

Protect first responders with the AIRVAC 911® Engine Exhaust Removal System. No hoses and hands free, this automatic system protects 100% of the apparatus bay area by constantly monitoring and automatically removing diesel exhaust and particulate matter from your station. At the heart of our four-stage filtration system is a MERV 16 rated filter that has the ability to remove particles 0.3-1.0 microns in size at an efficiency of greater than 95%.

There are no building modifications, vehicle attachments, ducting or external exhaust fans. Plus, the system doesn’t interfere with daily operations or response time. Address hot zones by removing off-gassing of turnout gear, hoses and parked vehicles. Remove “engine backwash” every time a vehicle leaves and returns.

AIRVAC 911 ® meets NFPA requirements, is half the cost of hose systems and the only maintenance is periodic filter changes.

Control the spread of contaminants.
