Dustcontrol launches new dust extraction range for wood floor grinding
Dust extraction specialist, Dustcontrol, has introduced a new dust extraction range for wood floor grinding. This includes two models; the DC F60, and the DC 1800 eco XL.
"Working with a wood floor grinder produces a lot of dust which means that the container or the plastic sack has to be emptied a number of times during usage," says Phil Haskins, construction sales manager at Dustcontrol. "To reduce unnecessary interruptions whilst working we have now developed the DC F60 pre-separator and the DC 1800 eco XL dust extractor."
The DC F60 can handle large quantities of dust, and is placed between the grinder and the vacuum to take the load off the filters and capture the majority of material.
The DC 1800 eco XL is the second offering in the new range. It has been purpose built for wood floor grinders, and can take care of large amounts of dust thanks to its 60-litre container and can be used with or without a pre-separator.
"Even with its large container, the DC 1800 eco XL is still lightweight, making it perfect for any wood floor grinding project where being mobile is key to doing a good job," explains Phil. "Plus, as it's connected directly to the parquet grinder itself, it is the primary barrier to stopping initial dust being released."
As with other Dustcontrol products, The DC 1800 eco XL uses HEPA H13 filters. Because of this the product is guaranteed to remove 99.95% of all particles greater than 0.3 microns from the air that passes through. Meaning the air exhausted from the DC 1800 eco XL is the cleanest it can be.
"For those working on parquet grinding projects, having these tools will be a huge advantage, helping them carry out a cleaner and more efficient job," concludes Phil.
