The Green Cocoon (TGC) is thrilled to announce it recently purchased an IDI DV18 Vacuum + Defender (DV18). The DV18 Gas Vacuum is the first of its kind with the debris containment system integrated directly with the vacuum. The DV18 features a steel fan and chamber and is powered by a rugged 18hp Briggs & Stratton V-Twin engine. This vacuum is intended for removing all types of blown insulation and for recycling damp spray.
New Machine Improves Indoor Air Quality
“We purchased this new machine to remove old insulation before we add anything new,” said James Materkowski, owner and president of TGC. “In the past, we used other contractors to do this work, but now we can do it ourselves! This helps to keep our costs down and also helps with quality control. Removing old insulation before adding new helps to improve indoor air quality and make the new insulation more efficient!
Some of the features of the DV18 are:
- 6” (15.2cm) inlet and outlet allows for substantial volume
- Engineered and designed to eliminate engine vibration and fan blade stress
- 12-volt Magnetron® Electronic Ignition system
- Input/output safety switches
- And more!
