The extraction of dusts is very important in the woodworking world. Modern methods of woodworking involve a lot of powerful tools and machinery, which create huge amounts of dust and chips. When dust is extracted efficiently, this ensures you are protecting your health and everybody else in the vicinity. In addition your machinery will be more effective.

Obtaining a dust extractor will help to keep your workshop safe, clean and tidy. It is important to remember that some wood dust is more dangerous than others; the general rule is that hardwood is more hazardous to us than softwood. This is usually due to the wood containing compounds such as tannin, and these generate finer wood dust particles when machined.

It is important to consider that all wood dust can be dangerous though, as the finer dust can get past our hair and mucus filters. Wood dust can cause dermatitis, asthma, and rhinitis. The specific woods that you should be most wary of are: maple, oak, rosewoods, olivewood, teak, and ebony.

Using dust extraction units is one of the best precautions you can take when it comes to protecting yourself from wood dust and chippings. The equipment we offer, whether used or new, come with outstanding features. These include top quality filter bags, re-usable collection bags, portability castors, metal straps and steel fans.

Dust extraction units are a sure way of maintaining health and safety standards in your workshop. If you have any enquiries regarding our machinery, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
