Independent extractors for sanding dust: characteristics and methods of use

independent dust extractors Stucchi 1950 blog

Stucchi 1950 independent extractors are the ideal solution if you are looking for a stand-alone, flexible and quick to assemble machine. Let’s find out in this article!

What are independent extractors and in which work areas are they useful?

Independent vacuum cleaners combine the suction of dust deriving from sanding activities and the autonomy and decentralization in a single extractor.

The autonomy of these vacuum cleaners excludes the use of centralized turbines, which are more suitable for large plants. On the other hand, independent extractors are fixed stations with turbine, filtering and dust collection system completely autonomous for each machine; therefore it is not necessary to install a centralized system if your activities require a limited number of operators, with energy saving and maintenance costs.

Free-standing or wall-mounted vacuum cleaners: features & applications

Stucchi 1950 has designed two different models of independent vacuum cleaners, the first one is ideal for free-standing preparation areas, the other one is designed for wall installation, with support bracket included. Both models can branch into further versions with optional and turbines of different power.

The independent extractors produced by Stucchi 1950 are comparable to suction modules and distribution of electrical and pneumatic energy. The simplicity of use is one of the workhorse of these models, simply power up the extractor and the operator can work immediately through the use of tools (both electric and compressed air), which will turn on the vacuum cleaner automatically or in manual mode.

Like all Stucchi 1950 products, they are equipped with a self-cleaning filtering system (automatic and programmable by touch screen), which does not require any maintenance. The filter, guaranteed for 5 years, is the beating heart of the extractor, the flagship of Stucchi 1950: the component has the purpose of always keeping the filters clean by means of an internal piston of our own design.

Stucchi 1950 independent vacuum cleaners can be adapted to different application sectors: automotive (bodywork and workshops for every type of vehicle), joinery, nautical, aeronautical, and mechanical industry. Here are some examples of our installations divided by field of expertise.

Let’s see our products in the next paragraph!

ATEX Dust Extractors: risk areas, characteristics and which one to choose

dust extractors ATEX Stucchi 1950: guide

ATEX extractors for dusts made in Stucchi 1950: in this article you will find out what ATEX directive is, the application criteria and risk areas, the main characteristics of a certified vacuum cleaner and the solutions proposed by Stucchi 1950. Enjoy reading!

What is an ATEX risk zone and with what criteria does it apply?

The term ATEX derives from the union of the French words ATmosphères and EXplosibles and identifies two European safety regulations concerning the use of machinery in areas at risk of explosion, and the protection of the health and safety of workers in potentially explosive atmospheres.

The directive has been mandatory since 2003 for all states of the European Union and mainly concerns work areas where combustible dusts such as carbon, aluminum, magnesium, zinc, plastic material residues, are treated.

The reference sectors of ATEX machinery are the pharmaceutical, petrochemical and refinery industries; over the years Stucchi 1950 have also marketed ATEX vacuum cleaners to companies operating in the military sector, electronics industry and in avant-garde body shops which deal with particular materials for car components such as, for example, carbon and aluminum.

The causes and risks of explosions due to ignition sources can be poor cleaning of the workplace and/or incorrect treatment of dust deriving from work activities. For these reasons, three different ATEX zones have been established for combustible dusts, each of which depends on the frequency and duration of the presence of explosive atmospheres:

  • Zone 20: Area in which there is an explosive atmosphere (in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in the air) for long periods or frequently.
  • Zone 21: Area in which the formation of an explosive atmosphere, always in the form of a cloud of combustible dust, occurs occasionally during work activities.
  • Zone 22: Area in which during normal activities the formation of an explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud caused by combustible dusts is unlikely or, if it occurs, it is of short duration.

Main features: mechanical and electronic components

All ATEX industrial vacuum cleaners, based on the characteristics, the areas of interest and the reference sector, must comply with very specific technical characteristics to prevent ignition sources. Going into the matter, the machinery must avoid the formation of static electricity, overheating of the turbines and other measures potentially dangerous for the environment and workers.

The ATEX vacuum cleaners by Stucchi 1950 respect these directives and we guarantee a daily commitment in the development of further improvements in the components; all ATEX vacuum cleaners Stucchi 1950 are equipped with:

  • Anti-static filters for ATEX Zone 21 dust extractors.
  • Originally ATEX certified turbines.
  • ATEX certified electrical components by the manufacturer (electrical panel, interlocked sockets, etc.).

In addition to the ATEX certified elements, Stucchi industrial dust extractors carry on the tradition of the “classic” series, equipping a system of self-cleaning filters, the automatic and manual start of the turbine, and an aesthetic refinement thanks to the anthracite gray, color symbol of the ATEX series by Stucchi 1950.

Which ATEX extractors to choose?

The Stucchi 1950 range offers reliable vacuum cleaners over time, capable of guaranteeing excellent performance for years, and, respecting ordinary maintenance, even decades.

Here are our main solutions:

  • Mobile Vacuum Cleaner ATEX ST2-TF: three-phase ATEX suction turbine 2.2 kW, complete with support surface with object holder and drawer units, electric and manual automatisms, manual / automatic filter cleaning; version specifically designed for the suction of aluminum and carbon powders.

Mobile vacuum cleaners for sanding dust: how, when and why to use them

aspiratori carrellati per polveri Stucchi 1950: consigli e applicazioni

Stucchi 1950 mobile vacuum cleaners are perfect synonymous with manageability, flexibility and ease of use. Let’s discover together in this article!

What are mobile extractors used for and what benefits do they have?

As can be easily understood from their name, the main function of a wheeled vacuum cleaner is the suction of dust deriving from sanding and polishing activities. The extractors allow you to keep the work areas clean, making the environment safe and professional for the workers.

What differentiates these products from other Stucchi vacuum cleaners such as independent ones or centralized turbines, is the fact that they are equipped with wheels, which allow operators to easily transport the extractors within the work areas. Each of our vacuum cleaners has adjustable controls that make the working phases flexible according to the operator’s needs.

Furthermore, Stucchi mobile extractors have a modern and refined design, the result of the development of many years of work in this sector; we know how important the visual impact of a product is, a modern wheeled vacuum cleaner in a well-assorted work area makes all the difference in terms of image and customer loyalty.

Mechanical components and sectors of application

The self-cleaning filter system is the flagship of Stucchi 1950: the component has the purpose of always keeping the filters clean by means of an internal piston, without any need for maintenance. Stucchi offers a 5-year guarantee for its filtering system, guaranteeing perfectly functioning vacuum cleaners even after 20-25 years.

Another essential element of the mobile extractor is the suction turbine, which is equipped with an automatic shutdown system when you finish using a tool connected to the aspirator. Stucchi 1950 mounts single-phase and three-phase turbines on its machinery, and a model that does not require electricity is also available because it is completely powered by compressed air.

The applications of Stucchi wheeled vacuum cleaners are diversified but with the guarantee of always having a quality product in your hands: automotive (bodyshop and workshops for each type of vehicle), carpentry, nautical, aeronautical, and mechanical industry. Here are some examples of our installations divided by field of expertise.
