The Devastator is a custom made to order inline filter, and the only inline filter on the market that does not leak water or air- Air going out of your filter is NOT where you want your airflow ;) The Devastator is 1 of a kind and it is the leading/best filter on the market -both inline and box filters not the best in its price range. THE BEST. It has become the benchmark for filters in the industry. It is patent pending, all of the features that make the Devastator superior to the knockoff models are the parts that cannot be copied.
* Devastators bag provides the best filtration possible- especially over the baskets.
* Internal tech minimizes or eliminates pooling at the bottom of the filter - this was not in our older filters, there is no comparison.
* Universal ports - Any cuffs or barbs you are running will slide on and hook up, some still use starter cuffs but it is not needed.
* wash and go- hose the debris down to the bottom and start your next job from there.
* -Hands free of debris- option see (video file) FAQ
We took the Devastator that Tom was making by hand to TORR Industeries right here in our town to have it made from stainless steel. We worked side by side to bring the filter to its next level in its stainless form. Each filter is hand made to order by a total of 2-3 people. The young man at TORR that rolls the housing, forms the lids, makes the clips by hand and does the welding. The rest of it is made and assembled by either Tom or Melissa in the evening after our day of cleaning carpets is finished.
We choose to have them made this way for quality control and to keep from having variations in filters. We are very proud to have our tools made here in the US, proud to help supply a young man and his young family a steady job, and proud to have our own hands involved in every filter that goes out.
While having them custom made to order does give us control over the quality of the filters and keeps us in touch with each filter that goes out, it also makes it impossible to say how long an order may take to be filled and ready to send out. We work day and night to get filters and wands out when we are not cleaning carpet but we do not have control over the workload over at TORR Industries. TORR is known for their very high quality work mostly in the wine industry where they make filler machines for wineries that run hundreds of thousands of dollars per filler. We are very fortunate to have a company like TORR make our filter for us and we know and understand that we are a very small part of their business and sometimes the deadlines for those filler machines take presidence over filter orders. The quality control and custom building of our filters is part of what makes them a Devastator product, and why you cant get one anywhere else.
PLEASE READ, IT WILL SAVE YOU FROM A LOT OF HEADACHES! We ship our products through FedEx and most of the time they do a fine job. However we have had some filters show up damaged and they are very tricky about paying for them even though we do carry the added insurance on them, in fact they are yet to pay on a claim.
Because of this we are asking that you look over your box very carefully when it is delivered.
IF THERE IS ANY DAMAGE TO THE BOX WE ASK THAT YOU OPEN IT IN FRONT OF THE DRIVER OR AT THE FED EX OFFICE IN YOUR TOWN IF IT WAS LEFT FOR YOU.
ESPECIALLY IF THEY ASK YOU TO SIGN FOR IT! WE DO NOT ASK FOR A SIGNATURE WHEN WE SEND A FILTER.
WHEN THEY ASK YOU FOR ONE IT USUALLY IS BECAUSE THERE IS DAMAGE TO THE BOX OR KNOW OF SOME POSSIBILTY THAT WHAT IS INSIDE COULD BE DAMAGED. WHEN YOU SIGN FOR IT YOU ARE ACCEPTING IT AS IT IS AND BASICALLY RELEASING THEM FROM LIABILITY. THIS IS WHY WE SAY OPEN IT IN FRONT OF THEM IF YOU NOTICE ANYTHING ON THE BOX. ONCE IT HAS BEEN LEFT WITH YOU AND YOU BRING IT TO THEM OPENED THEY SEEM TO CLAIM THAT THERE IS NO WAY TO PROVE THAT IT DIDNT HAPPEN WHILE IT WAS IN YOUR POSESSION. IF THERE IS ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR FILTER DO NOT ACCEPT IT!
PLEASE LOOK IT OVER CAREFULLY. IT WILL TAKE LESS TIME TO LOOK IT OVER AND OPEN IT IN FRONT OF THEM EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT TO A FEDEX OFFICE TO DO SO, THAN IT WOULD IF WE HAVE TO MAKE A NEW ONE FOR YOU AND SEND IT OUT AGAIN AND GO THROUGH THEIR INSURANCE DENYING PROCESS.
WE THANK YOU !!!!! AND YOU WILL THANK YOU!!!
