Sync Function (Power take off)
By simply plugging in your power tool into the sync power outlet on the vacuum, the power tool will automatically control when the vacuum starts and stops. Select II on the vacuum switch. Connect the vacuum to a power outlet and it is ready to go.
As the power tool is switched on, both the power tool and the vacuum will start simultaneously. When the power tool is switched off, the vacuum continues for up to 8 seconds which clears any debris in the hose and the vacuum stops. Next time the power tool is started, the vacuum also starts. The operation of the sync is limited. For a 1500 watt vac, the max for power tool is 800 watt.
What is a vacuum cleaner with Power Take Off (PTO)?
A vacuum cleaner with Power Take Off is essentially a portable dust extraction unit, often used by carpenters, builders and renovators to capture wood and masonry dust before it spreads. Helping to reduce exposure to potentially hazardous dust, whilst also keeping homes and working environments clean.
Why is it important to extract building dust from your home or workspace?
It is important to consider proper dust collection when undertaking any building work, whether in a work environment or in your home. Repeated exposure to wood or masonry dust can be hazardous, causing anything from a flu-like illness, to chronic bronchitis, to cancer. Wood dust often contains bacteria and fungi, which, when airborne, can enter the lungs and cause illness and long term damage.
How to connect a power tool to a PTO vacuum cleaner?
Using a power tool or machine to sand, saw, router or drill can generate large volumes of potentially hazardous dust. Because of this, most dust generating tools have a port for collecting the dust. Simply connecting a hose from a dust extracting vacuum cleaner to this port, captures the dust generated directly at the point of origin.
HEPA Class 13 filtration
With a HEPA 13 catridge filter and a HEPA 13 post-motor filter. Capturing at least 99.97% of dust and allergen particles, down to 0.3 microns. HEPA filtration gives asthma and allergy sufferers even greater protection.
What does HEPA mean?
High Efficiency Particulate Air
Microns and HEPA
A micron is a measurement of size. A single grain of sand is approximately 100 microns and the human eye can see particles as small as 40 microns. Vacmaster HEPA certified filters collect debris as small as 0.3 of a micron.
What are the benefits of HEPA?
There are a number of key benefits of HEPA filtration:
- It filters out particles undetectable to the human eye and stops them from being released back into the air. This means a safe and clean working environment.
- HEPA certification is a badge of quality and proven results. It provides peace of mind.
- HEPA certified filters protect the end-user from inhaling harmful debris. This means a reduced risk of injury, long term damage or compromised health.
Two Stage Motors (twin fan)
What is a two stage motor?
A two stage motor features two fans on the same motor shaft. Air moved by these fans travels through each fan in turn.
What does a twin fan system do?
The twin fan system increases the vacuum pressure as it moves through the stage/fans allowing it to reduce the motor speed and still maintain airflow and suction.
Why is less motor speed good?
Reducing the motor speed is the best way to reduce noise and extend the life of the motor.
How will this benefit me?
You will get better suction, a longer motor life and lower noise compared to our single fan system running at the same speed.
