ARE THESE REUSABLE ? 3 Answers
Because they're synthetic, and not paper, i have a doubt that they are reusable, are they ? if so; when they get full i just empty them and refit a new bag? is there a limit to how long i can do this with one bag ?

Re Jan Silins comment: Although you may be able to extend the 'amount' the bag can contain by increasing the density and effectively reducing the area of air flow more fine particles will escape the filtering and reduce the motor cooling so we would only suggest you use his method while awaiting your new bags.
- What you can do I discovered is when the bag gets full, you can easily push the contents towards the end away from the inlet nozzle by pressing on the bag. I have even removed the bag, held it upright and squashed it down, when expanded all the contents have gone to the end, and in this way the bag is effectively "empty" around the inlet and suction is back in full force. You could not do this with a paper bag, it would simply rip, these bags are really strong so you can get several "paper bag's" worth from just one of these HepaFlow ones.

Unless they say on the bag or packaging it must be assumed that these are not reusable.
- Used as part of a two or three stage filtering system, maybe. There are other bags, bettet for small particles: search micro-flo. But again, for asbestos, you have to look at the performance of the whole system, not only the bag.
- I wouldn't like to comment on the asbestos dust, but yes to fitting your normal Henry

No these wiil not be suitable for use on asbestos, see more information on this website about it's uses. http://www.nacecare.com/articles/truth-about-hepa Yes they are for Henry appliances, just check the 'Models This Part Fits' section.
- It's difficult to say as there's no ingredients on the box! At first sight I'd have said they're a papery material like paper towels but feeling them, they seem like a strong woven jeye-cloth sort of material (without the checks of course!). Hope this helps.
Will this fit my vac? 1 Answer
I have the Henry Hound which is not listed but the cleaners that are listed use the same bags as I have used in the past. I am guessing, therefore, that these will be suitable too. Am I correct?
- yes they will,and be more efficient than the regular type.
