Portable dust extraction system from Chicago Pneumatic

06 November, 2020

Chicago Pneumatic has introduced a new all-in-one dust extraction solution to make metalworking applications safer and more efficient. The compact and portable solution, comprising a powerful CPA5000 pneumatic vacuum cleaner and a lightweight shroud, is designed for use with traditional pneumatic hand tools to enable dust-free drilling, grinding, and sanding, no matter where the work takes place. The solution is ideal for a wide range of operating environments, including hard-to-reach locations in shipyard, aerospace, rolling stock, machinery, and renewables applications.


Serious health risk

“Metal dust poses a serious risk to workers’ health if inhaled. It can also put the surrounding facility and machinery at risk, as it is ten times more combustible than wood dust,” says Damien Feller, global product marketing manager Spares & Solutions at Chicago Pneumatic. “That is why it is vital to ensure effective mobile dust extraction is achieved, especially in applications where no central vacuum is available. Chicago Pneumatic wants to help managers address these risks while supporting the need for improved productivity. The effective removal of dust particles protects workers’ health and helps the workplace comply with clean air regulation. Furthermore, with less dust impairing visibility and no need to pause work for cleaning, workers can turn their full attention to delivering the best possible results.”

Design for ease of use, the vacuum cleaner weighs only 1.3 kilos, whereas most vacuuming solutions on the market average 30 kilos. The light weight and compact size make it easy for workers to carry it with them to the next job. The shrouds are light yet durable, and simple to adapt to existing hand tools.

They feature clear windows that enable 225-degree visibility, allowing workers to monitor the progress of the task at all times. The same airline is used to power both the hand tool and the vacuum cleaner, simplifying use.
