What is Dust Extraction?

Dust extraction is process of clearing an area or the atmosphere of dust. This can be in the form of airborne dust particles, or by vacuuming dust particles which have begun to build up in a certain parts of construction sites, warehouses, workshops or factories.

Dust extraction is a vital component of a company’s health and safety strategy. Failure to deal with excessive workplace dust can lead to heavy fines and serious health implications.

The Health and Safety Executive has been clamping down on businesses who don’t take their responsibilities seriously. At the beginning of 2020, the HSE started its dust campaign and launched a new ‘Dustbuster’ initiative in October.

The campaign saw health and safety inspectors across Great Britain targeting construction firms to check their health standards were up to scratch.

Who uses Dust Extraction equipment?

Dust extraction equipment is used by all manner of industries to help keep on top of dust problems. On smaller scales, dust management equipment can work for individual tradespeople such as joiners and welders.

Smaller machines are also very handy for people carrying out renovation work or DIY projects in their own home.

Larger scale dust management solutions will be used in greater size in other areas though. Places like factories, construction sites, woodworking shops, warehouses and welding studios should all be using some form of dust extraction equipment.

Without machinery to extract dust, you are putting your staff and your own health at risk. Not only that, but excess dust can find its way into the nooks and crannies of expensive equipment and significantly shorten their lifespan.

Small Dust Extraction Equipment

Depending on your industry and your needs, it can be quite tricky to find the perfect dust extraction solution. This is especially true for people who require small dust control and dust extraction solutions.

We hear from people everyday asking us to help. Welders, nail technicians, solderers and a mix of tradespeople are all looking for small dust extraction systems. So, we wanted to speak a bit about small dust extraction methods and solutions.

Size Matters

When working in a small space, it’s important not to over-do it with equipment. You don’t want anything to get in the way of your workspace, especially if what you’re doing requires high levels of precision, such as welding or soldering.

Size is also important if you need to move the item around a room, studio or warehouse. We wouldn’t expect you to move a 2-tonne dust extractor around the room a few times per day!

Desktop Dust Extractors

When portability is key, we would recommend using one of MaxVac’s desktop range of dust extractors. These are light enough to remain portable, and won’t get in the way of your work.

For instance, the MaxVac WFE 260 is ideally suited for vacuuming welding fumes, soldering fumes, dust (nail studios) etc.

You can easily move it around or mount it on a desktop as it is so light. This highly practical piece of equipment is excellent for a number of applications.

Dust Extractors for Home Use

The world of dust extraction isn’t limited to tradespeople or industrial settings. MaxVac have developed solutions for homeowners too.

A good example is the Dustblocker 700. This has been designed for use in home renovations and flood restoration. It is fitted with a high efficiency motor with HEPA filtration and a metal guard to protect the filters.

Its small size makes it easy to store and the unit is very robust.

Are Small Dust Extractors Powerful?

The suction power even in small dust extractors is more than sufficient to get the job done. This is due to recent innovations and modern technology.

Motors are powerful, efficient and most come with HEPA air filtration systems. HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate air and works by forcing air through a fine mesh.

The mesh traps harmful particles such as dust, pollen, pet hairs and tobacco smoke.
