  Why Dust-Free Floor Refinishing and Sanding Really Matter!

 

Using our Dust Containment System makes 99% less dust than traditional dust collection for floor sanders. The old system consisted of attaching a cloth bag to the exhaust pipe of the sanding machine and taking a "something is better than nothing" attitude. It was better than no collection at all, but it was still messy, and not healthy. Using a dust containment system is a totally new and innovative solution to the dust problem.

 

Dust bags don't work so I don’t use them! Without a bag, sanding machines breathe easier and there is no back pressure, so dust is picked up at the floor where it should be.

 

In place of a dust bag, a super efficient cyclone that attaches to the exhaust of the sanding machine is put in its place. Cyclones are centrifugal separators that use gravity and air speed to separate material from an air stream. The cyclone spins the dust-laden air stream and drops the dust out of the bottom into a clear dust holder. The air stream which now has only a small amount of ultra-fine dust in it, exits the top of the cyclone and goes through a high-efficiency cartridge filter. The filter removes particles down to below 1 micron in size.

 

A pencil point is approximately 100 microns, so there is essentially no dust emission from the filter. The dust that is separated into the bottom holder is carried away by a vacuum pump through a hose that transfers the dust to a 35 gal. drum. The drum uses another small cyclone to drop the dust into a plastic bag. The airstream continues through the pump and through a last filter that removes any fine dust from the air used to convey the dust from the sanding machine.

 

The results allow for a clean floor surface when preparing your hard wood floors for application of stain and finish and further eliminates the concerns for any air borne dust settling into the finish after it has been applied.

 

Our dust-free sanding equipment has many advantages:

 

No ineffective dust bags or covers required

No release of airborne contaminants including toxins, allergens or debris

Our dust system saves us time and is efficient for us

No contamination of curtains, carpet, clothing or other home furnishings

No settlement or damage to air conditioner systems

No required removal of curtains, blinds, clothing, or wall decorations

No staining of expensive wall coverings or faux finishes
