Concrete dust control keeping sites cleaner, safer and more efficient
Dust control is a big issue. It’s a growing issue, and it’s not going away. Indoors and outdoors, dust doesn’t get any better. Grinding, cutting, polishing, and demolition all creates some sort of dust that is actually harmful to you, your workers, and the environment around you.
As always, DRY GRINDING is the recommended way to work effectively, not only because it’s easier to clean-up after the process but keeps your floors and working area cleaner at all times. By grinding or polishing dry (with a concrete dust extraction / vacuum attached) means that you will see less wear and tear on your diamonds as there is less friction being created around each diamond segment.
Dry grinding doesn’t leave behind mess and slurry that takes forever to clean-up and means you have to wait for your floors to dry prior to going onto the next stage.
During the construction, refurb, concrete floor prep or demolition stages, it’s essential to have an effective vacuum. Especially if you’re grinding or working with concrete dust, your vacuum needs to be capable of controlling this dust on site. Sucking away excess dust during your project means you can see exactly what cut or finish your diamonds leave left on the on the floor.
If you are grinding wet, the cut tends to be more aggressive, meaning heavier markings that you can’t always see because there is wet slurry left in a slump over the floor, this has to be moved by wetting it down, and shovelling to dispose of or using a wet vacuum that is able for controlling it.
If the wet concrete grinding cut is too agrees vie, your making yourself another process across the floor in order to remove the heavy markings and scratching that were left by your concrete floor grinding machine.
Do it right the first time, grind dry? Run your concrete floor grinders with a concrete vacuum or dust extraction system.
Safety and Air Quality are 2 of the main reasons for using powerful dust extraction systems. Dust Control UK, a Swedish based dust extraction and collection company has been in the game for many years, making, designing and testing new ways of controlling dust and purifying dusty air into clean to make work sites cleaner, safer and more efficient.
SINGLE PHASE VACUUM AND DUST EXTRACTION MACHINES
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.
- 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.
- 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.

THREE PHASE VACUUM AND DUST EXTRACTION MACHINES
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,.
