Ensuring that your facility uses the correct dust control machines can save you a lot of money in the long run. However, it’s important to understand how they work and which type of machine will be best suited to your requirements before purchasing one.

How Do Dust Control Machines Work?

In all construction sites dust is a health and safety risk as well as a risk to quality control. Not only can it be harmful to the quality of your work but it can also be harmful for your employees if they breathe it in or if it irritates their eyes.

To mitigate the amount of dust in the air during construction, dust control systems draw dust and particles from the air through a filter that collects this unwanted residue before discharging the purified air back into the surroundings.

More often than not, companies that make dust control machines create them to fit particular pieces of machinery. Although this means that the most optimal connection is made between the dust control machine and the plant machinery it’s attached to, it also means that compatibility is often a problem when trying to buy one. Thankfully, Concept Flooring Technology hosts a broad range of dust control machines to ensure that we have the appropriate solution for you.

Types of Dust Control Machines

Dust Extractor: Dust extractors work on the principle of high volume air travelling at a low velocity. This makes them good for higher quantities of dust and they have much larger tubes to avoid any blockages.


Wet Vacuum: In contrast to dust extractors, wet vacs use a low volume of air travelling at a higher velocity, making them ideal for smaller quantities of dust in a smaller surface area. The benefit of a wet vac is that liquids can also be vacuumed as well as dust, making them doubly useful in a lot of situations.

Air Scrubber: Air scrubbers are more passive ways of getting rid of dust in industrial settings. They use purification filters to remove contaminants in the air which is slowly circulated through the system. The fresh, clean air that is produced by the air scrubber is then released in its place.

Why You Should Use a Dust Control Machine

There are a number of benefits to using a dust control machine. Not only will they ensure that your equipment lasts longer but your employees will be working in a much safer and more comfortable environment. Both of these factors save your business money over the long term, making them a cost effective addition to the facility. The safety they provide will also make your business more attractive to potential investors and clients.
