of brick mortar joints. The vacuum is conveniently wheeled to
the site and you can easily removed the vacuum from the cart to use
just the vacuum on scaffold. The vacuum - compact (12" in
diameter) and with a flat bottom tank - is easy to handle and even easier to
secure on scaffold.
Tuck Pointers - Seriously increase productivity. With the
compact 12 gallon tank and industrial high-power motor, tuck pointers
are able to grind brick mortar joints until the silica reaches the
inlet port on the tank ~
without incurring suction loss!
General Purpose Use -
Vacuum ultra fine powder to moist debris and even at the same time!
Filter System -
AIRFlow HEPA Filtration ~ Expect to collect over
40 lbs. of concrete dust with little if any suction drop. Turn the
vacuum off then on again and the filter
bag will release any caking by deflating and re-inflating itself. Turn on the vacuum and
suction power actually improves! The 12 gallon collection tank
will fill completely, to its inlet port with
maybe a minimal drop
in suction power.

HEPA FILTER SYSTEM - Background, Filter Information
AIRFlow HEPA Filtration - the Ultimate Filter System?
System includes a HEPA Efficiency Pleated Cartridge Filter and
your choice to use the Clean Extreme Filter Collection Bags or the
Self-Cleaning Flutter Filter:
state of the art manufacturing and in house testing,
the filter has been
specifically designed to provide the performance required
for the proper operation of a Dust Director ®
Dry Use + HEPA Rated + Longer Life with Applied PTFE Membrane:
Release & Water Shredding PTFE Membrane
enhances the filter's
capabilities in several areas, including filtration efficiency (meets or exceeds
a HEPA rating), cake
release, cake prevention, "extreme" service life.
A filter's base
fabric is typically made of woven or
felted synthetic fibers, natural fibers or
fiberglass. The membrane is a mechanically applied
treatment (extremely thin, from 0.4 to 10.0 mils) that
requires the filter's fabric for support.
of the Expanded PTFE in Dust Collection Applications:
to help meet EPA-mandated limits on exhaust emissions
while providing the following benefits:
Provides surface filtration rather than depth filtration
(which is provided by conventional filter fabric). Surface
filtration keeps the captured dust particles away from
becoming impregnated into the base fabric, thus reducing fabric abrasion and extending
the filter's service life. With longer service
life you won't need to change the filter nearly as often
which reduces your replacement cost and downtime during
Reduce pressure drop, cut energy (motor)
costs. The membrane typically prevents pressure
drop across the filter by about 10 percent.
This in turn cuts wear on the vacuum's motor(s) while reducing power consumption
by as much
as 33 percent!
Extreme Dust Cake Release / Extreme Dust Cake
Prevention. The expanded PTFE membrane is slicker
than a conventional filter fabric and it easily
releases any dust cake during cleaning.
4) Most people purchase a
vacuum cleaner based on improvements or features of the vacuum cleaner.
The vacuum's cartridge filter alone, applied with a PTFE membrane, will
increase the vacuum's performance by as much as 25 percent - thereby
increasing production rates for your entire operational process.
Extreme & Diverse Applications. The expanded PTFE
membrane can withstand the most abusive of applications,
dry or wet, and temperatures up to 600°F --- highly suitable for high-temperature applications such as
when removing hot mastics. Additionally, as
filter is complete washable.
While the PTFE membrane increases the filter's and
vacuum's cost, the
initial cost is offset by improved filtration
efficiency, vacuum performance and longer filter life.
CLEAN EXTREME FILTER COLLECTION BAGS (3 included per vacuum):
With a Clean
Extreme Filter Bag installed you can expect to collect large volumes of silica dust -
to the tank's inlet port - without incurring suction drop
or without the filter bag tearing or accidentally bursting inside the tank.
How many times are you stopping
to clean or
maintain the vacuum's filter or having to empty the tank
all too often?
With a Clean Extreme Filter Bag installed, suction power
stops when dust begins to exit through the tank's 2" inlet
fine powders collected and contained within the Clean Extreme
Filter Bag will not cause blinding (i.e. the powder will not
cake the bag's lining, suction is not diminished.) When
vacuuming any type of power, for hours at a time and you happen to notice suction
drop . . . With a
Dust Director Vacuum you simply
turn off the vacuum, doing so will cause the Clean Extreme
Filter Bag to deflate; when you turn the vacuum on the
bag inflates and suction resumes 100% ~ Guaranteed. Are
dry and you come across wet concrete, stone or mortar? No
problem - Clean Extreme Filter Bags work even better when the
surface is damp! Besides
maintaining suction and collecting large volumes of
powder without suction drop, Clean Extreme Filter Bags also
collect: Moist debris, sharp objects and hot mastics ALL AT
THE SAME TIME. Additionally, when you remove the
filter bag you'll notice that the inside that the inside of
the tank, the outside of the bag and the HEPA cartridge
filter are "clean":
Extreme Filter Bags: Collects anything - powders to
sludge - they fill to capacity, powders do not blind suction,
no accidental bursting or tearing inside the tank or while
being handled during disposal, and everything stays
clean ~ Guaranteed.

Flutter Filter is a self-cleaning drop-in filter that may be used
instead of the Clean Extreme Filter Collection Bag. As soon as the vacuum
is turned on the tightly weaved "but loose fitting" Flutter Filter
beings to flutter and shake, using the air speed and
turbulence inside the collection tank to create its motion.
naturally in motion, dry debris and
roughly 50% of the powders are kept from blinding
the surface of the Flutter Filter and causing suction drop.
Like a Clean Extreme Filter Collection Bag, any accumulation
or blinding on the surface of the Flutter Filter
naturally released when the vacuum is turned
off and on: When the vacuum is on the Flutter Filter
raises, when the vacuum is turned on the filter drops . . . effectively releasing any caking.
to help prevent blinding while the vacuum is on, a floating filter cage
inside the Flutter Filter swings freely and loosely as it shakes and knocks itself about
using the air speed and turbulence inside the collection
you're on a job site it's
nice to have options . . . with a Dust Director® Industrial Vacuum
Cleaner you're able to use
either the Clean Extreme Filter Bags
or the Flutter Filter.
The Clean Extreme Filter Bags
are the absolute best filter system on the market for collecting
"large volumes" of silica dust while maintaining maximum
suction performance and for keeping everything clean inside the tank
and even during removing and handling ~ everything is kept clean
and there isn't a mess.
Flutter Filter works impressively as well, reduces or eliminates the cost of
replacement filter bags, uses no electronics to shake or pulse
itself clean and it is completely re-useable and washable.

OSHA's Final Rule: You
Will Get Fined Using a Non-Compliance Dust Extractor.
Final Rule to Protect Workers from Exposure to Respirable Crystalline
engineering controls (tools and equipment) to keep workers from
breathing silica dust.
What is Respirable
Silica Dust? These tiny particles (known as
"respirable" particles) can penetrate deep into workers'
lungs and cause silicosis, an incurable and sometimes fatal lung
disease. Crystalline silica exposure puts workers at risk for
developing lung cancer and other possible debilitating respiratory
diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary and kidney disease.
How Much Respirable
Silica Dust is Safe to Breath? OSHA has issued their Final
Rule to curb these respirable and
kidney diseases in America's work force by limiting a worker's exposure to
respirable crystalline silica to 50 micrograms per cubic over an
What Does 50 Micrograms of
Respirable Silica Dust Look Like? A good example may be one of
those small paper packets of sugar or artificial sweeteners found in
When used to demonstrate the dust concentration
inside a building, the size of a football field (100 yards x 53 yards x
14' high). The weight of one of those little packets is 53
micrograms, which is slightly over the PEL (permissible exposure limit)
for Silica Dust of 50 micrograms.
Such a fine dispersing
of dust at this concentration would essentially be
invisibility. It is also enough to put the workers at risk by
contaminating the work area --- the size of a football field x 14'
Respirable Silica Dust Law - Effective: 23 June 2016.
1999, the Dust Director® has been involved with various
organizations aimed at improving the health and
safety on construction sites. On a meeting, dated 23 April
2014, the Dust Director® was invited to participate in a
discussion about OSHA's upcoming Silia Dust Standard. Besides the
representatives from OSHA, the following organizations
were also present:
CPWR (Center for
Construction Research and Training)
university research scientists and professors
National Safety Coordinator for the International
Masonry Institute (IMI)
Jerry Scarano, Vice
President of the International Union of Bricklayers and
Allied Craft Workers (BAC).
past meetings, by the use of various air testing meters,
NIOSH determined that the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL)
of a worker being exposed to silica dust should not be
greater than 93.4. [On record, NIOSH tested the
Dust Director® System (dust control guard and vacuum), and
determined the complete system "provided the
greatest reduction of capturing silica dust at 94% than
any other vacuum
and dust guard that was tested.]
to simplify the understanding and importance of
containing silica dust exposure, OSHA and all parties
involved, have adopted the buzz phase of "visible
dust," as their measurement of whether silica
exposure is being sufficiently contained for both the
workers and public.
Left to Fly from a Skyscraper ~
interesting case study was provided by a Detroit contractor who
was tuck pointing at a high rise office building in downtown
Detroit, 35 floors above
the sidewalks. A summarization of his findings on silica dust
exposure is as follows:
workers were tuck pointing an office building, 35 floors up,
without the use of dust control
thinking was, to leave the silica fly and let it disburse into
the sky . . . that it wouldn't harm anyone or anything
safety coordinator for the company, he monitored the air
quality of his workers
quality readings were as follows:
> Employee "A" was working in air quality
measured 85 times over the NIOSH established PEL
"B", working downstream from employee
"A", was receiving a concentrated dose of dust as his air quality measured 135 times over the
case study shows how "visible dust" may be seen, more importantly
moral obligation we need to take for our construction workers,
the public, and the environment.
Emissions --- Does
Your Vacuum Leak Dust?

OSHA'S "No Visible Dust Law", is
gasket beneath the motor head to seal the tank? With
the OSHA ruling You

Motor Head Gasket. Beneath the motor head of every Dust
Vacuum & Cyclone is a poured-in-place
urethane gasket that is used to ensure
a positive airtight seal between the motor head and its tank. Commonly
used shop vacuums and even higher priced vacuums will use foam or
nothing at all.
gasket ensures against dust leakage into your work area and prevents
even the slightest loss of vacuum which would naturally reduce suction
power. Many wonder how the suction of a Dust Director ®
Vacuum and Cyclone seems so much more powerful than other brands, one of
the reasons is the urethane gasket.
Director's Increase in Suction Power?
complete Dust Director System (vacuum and dust guard) have been successfully monitored by NIOSH to operate
within the guidelines of their established PEL, a
important feature in all of the Dust Director® Vacuums
and Cyclones is
the poured-in place urethane gasket.
some vacuums use foam as a gasket, 90% of all vacuums use nothing! This startling
statistic includes vacuum's that cost well over $2000
dollars. While the Rigid vacuum, for example, does not use
any type of gasket (while leaking profusely), the consensus
among morally conscience contractors is a
Rigid vacuum is simply not designed to be used for silica dust
vs. the Competition:
a visit to masonry tuck pointers in Chicago and Detroit, the
suction power of the Dust Director® Vacuums was compared to the
Bosch 3931 Airsweep, Hilti VC20 and Fein Turbo I vacuums. Simply by
placing our hand over the inlet port of each vacuum, the
following was the agreed upon results:
Model DD1000: 15% greater suction vs. Bosch
& Fein, 25% greater suction vs. Hilti
Model DD1200: Easily 20% greater suction than the
Both Dust Director®
models where considerably lighter than
Bosch, Fein and the Hilti vacuums.
