Dust control is a necessary part of workplace safety. This is practiced to minimize the risks of respiratory ailments due to fine particles produced during grinding and other actions on-site. In the past, grinding on wet surfaces has been a common practice to avoid producing harmful fine dust. However, that resulted in a messy workplace which can also cause harm due to accidents. On top of that, it leaves your equipment soaking in slurry and other wet materials that can cause wear and tear to your investments as a contractor.

Dust control is a big issue. Grinding, cutting, polishing, and demolition all creates some sort of dust that is actually harmful to you, your workers, and the environment around you.

Concrete floor grinding is commonly done dry with a vacuum cleaner connected to help keep the site cleaner and safer during the process. Also by grinding dry with a vacuum connected (ie, no water) you will always find that your diamonds will wear more cost effectively as there is less friction being created around each segment.

Grinding concrete floors with a vacuum connected means you don’t have mess left behind the machine that processes like wet grinding tend to cause, and means you can proceed with the next part of the process right away.

To put it simply, dust suppression not only helps keep the air you breathe clean but also saves you and your client time and money. Now the question is how can you find the right method for you to control dust while working?

The answer to that question is simple, take a look at our range of dust control solutions. Start with our range of dust extraction vacuums, followed by the most sought-after air cleaners and air purifiers. Our vacuums are packed with high-powered motors for powerful output. To put it simply, if you want your work area dust free then practice using dust suppression methods that’s specialized for industry-grade dust. Check out the best dust control solutions below.




All the 1-phase dust extractors are equipped with a fine filter and a HEPA filter (H 13). Filter cleaning is achieved with a reverse air pulse cleaning system which is both effective and done without mess or having to disassemble the machine. The filter system also allows for ergonomic and dust-free filter changes.

Choosing the right machine
Two things determine which machine is required for a given application.

  1. The size of the suctions casing/nozzle and the type of operation determine the required air flow which influences which dust separator is suitable, considering also filter area and dimensions of inlet.
  2. The pressure generation: The longer the hose and/or tubing run, the greater the pressure drop will be. Greater pressure generation is required from the source when handling large quantities of material.

Our three-phase dust extractors are used for heavy materials where high pressure is required. The vacuum producer is a turbo pump, directly driven by a three-phase motor. Our dependable turbo machines have minimal service requirements and a long life. The characteristic performance of the turbo pump is well suited for heavy cleaning and material transport. The turbo motor generates more vacuum when the resistance increases.

Running alongside common brands, the Dust Control Vacuum and Concrete Dust Extraction systems are designed to suit any construction contractors machine and budget,.
