Husqvarna air scrubbers and HTC Duratiq grinders clean the wayPublished 10/10 at 16:30
Using an air scrubber can further clean air in enclosed area, and are easy to use: plug it in, turn it on and it’s ready to clean the air.
When used in addition to a dust suppression system, it helps ensure work space is well protected against airborne dust particles. Husqvarna’s A-line features two of the most advanced and versatile portable air scrubbers available on the market. They are tested and certified for use as both air scrubbers and negative air machines, making them the ideal complement to dust and slurry management equipment as well as other applications where air quality is essential.
The A600 and A1200 are equipped with an efficient filter system providing superior air quality when dealing with concrete, fine sanding or gypsum dust. The number of air cleaners needed for a particular job site should be calculated so that the entire air volume on the worksite is filtered at least six to eight times per hour. Amongst their many features include a quiet and efficient operation, are ready for ducting, come in a lightweight cabinet with sturdy aluminium frame and metal locking casters and with a metal mesh protecting the filter area. They also provide two stage air filtration, with a pre-filter made of pleated polyester which catches the larger dust fractions before the air enters the individually tested HEPA filter, ensuring 99.97% efficiency at 0.3 microns.
Single phase dust extractors
The Husqvarna S-line (S 13, S 26 and S 36) consists of professional dust extractors designed to meet strict demands. These compact, lightweight machines are equipped with one, two or three powerful single phase electric motors with separate cooling, capable of running continuously all workday. This makes them suitable for all construction, abatement and restoration jobs, as well as for use with electric power tools.
Additionally a dust extractor can act as a substitute for a cube vac, this being primarily due to jet pulse cleaning of the conical main filter. A Longopac® collecting bag enables the machine to be emptied quickly and simply, whilst individually tested and certified HEPA filters provide superior and safe dust collection, even on fine sanding and gypsum dust. Longopac bags are completely sealed, meaning that the operator never comes into contact with the dust.
As well as the above, Airflow™ tool holders have been developed to increase airflow across tools to improve diamond cutting and life. At the same time, the increased airflow creates a cyclone effect in the grinder head and enables the dust extractor to pull dust off of the floor more effectively.
The HTC Duratiq floor grinders feature a number of innovations that interact to increase efficiency, and improve the work environment. These include AirFlow™ technology and the mist cooler system, MCS. AirFlow™ technology optimises the airflow inlet at the base of the grinder head versus the top of the grinder head to increase the amount of dust that is pulled off the floor. This creates a newly dust free work environment with less manual dust collection. The MCS’s main purpose is to keep tooling cool, which in turn means improved performance, and longer service life. However, the mist has the added benefit of helping to keep any dust that may still be floating suppressed.
