What is the main reason for dust extraction?
Dust extraction prolongs the life of your work tools, so they aren’t clogged up, saving you money and time. Using a dust extraction system can increase the lifespan of your work tools by up to three times longer.
It’s also extremely important for health and safety so that the air doesn’t contain harmful dust particles and contaminants which could make your employees fall ill.
Can I use a vacuum cleaner for dust extraction?
Vacuum cleaners are suitable for cleaning up small amounts of material dust, however, they do not offer full-scale filtration as dust extraction systems do. It’s always best to opt for a dust extraction unit to remove dust, as this ensures the air does not contain harmful particles as well as thoroughly cleaning your work tools to increase their lifespan.
How does dust extraction work?
Dust extraction systems work by drawing in dust particles from the air through a filter that separates the dust from the air and discharges the purified air back into the environment.
