Choosing the right dust extractor for your workshop

Dust is a problem for many industrial environments – especially workshops – but how do you manage the waste produced by woodworking machinery?

Defuma has just the solution. The most effective way to remove dust and other contaminants from your working environment is to invest in an appropriate dust extraction system and we have a wide range available to buy or hire.

Key features of dust extractors

Every dust extractor is different, but they are all manufactured to efficiently remove dust and particles from the atmosphere. Most of our dust extraction systems offer:

  • Manual filter cleaning
  • Choice of inlet sizes
  • Cartridge filter
  • HEPA filter
  • High-capacity waste drum
  • Mobility

Wood dust extractors

Sawdust is a natural by-product of working with wood. Our wood dust extractors make it much easier for you to control the dust that’s produced – allowing for a safer working environment.

AWEDE 2 dust extractor

The AWEDE 2 extractor is a small, portable extractor designed for workshops. This unit has two cloth bags – one to act as a filter and the other to collect waste.

One of the most unique features of the AWEDE 2 is its sweeping attachment for the base of the unit. It helps it to be wheeled around easily from one area to another.

UB2200 VECK fine dust cyclone

The UB2200 VECK cyclone system is best-suited to small/medium trade workshops. Designed to handle most types of dust (with the exception of very fine particles), it’s one of the most mobile units we supply, thanks to its large castor wheels.

The VECK is a great choice if you need a  quiet wood dust extraction system because it’s designed to minimise noise. It also benefits from an auto-filter cleaning which allows for consistent performance.

T-2000CK-200 dust extractor

The T-2000CK-200 is perfect for smaller workshops and is used to remove medium to fine dust particles.

It’s easy to maintain airflow and has a manual filter cleaning system. It has a highly efficient separation system too which ensures the air passing through the filter is 99% clean. We supply this unit with 1-micron filter cartridge or an optional 0.3 micron HEPA filter.

Air filtration systems

To supplement wood dust extraction, we also supply a variety of air filtration systems which can be wall-mounted, ceiling-hung or free-standing. They help to remove even more impurities to keep your workshop clean – free from wood dust and airborne dust.

DFT electrostatic series

Filtration systems, like the DFT electrostatic series, can operate quietly in the background to combat airborne dust and run all the time. Airborne dust particles are very fine and the electrostatic series filter these out.

The air filtration system uses electrostatic precipitation to filter air from the atmosphere, or directly from machines, and can be recirculated it in your workshop. This process reduces the need for you to replace filters and reduces your energy costs.

FM300BC air filtration system

The FM300BC is a dependable  filtration system available to hire or lease from Defuma. It has a 1.5kW motor and can handle single workshop machines.

Features include a top cloth bag (the filter) and a lower plastic bag which collects coarse dust and chippings – great for disposing of bulk materials. The FM300BC is one of the simplest air filtration systems to use – incorporating an efficient airflow system and base castors to assist with movement around the workshop.
