Effective Wood Dust Extractors for Small to Medium Workshops

Extraction and filtration systems from Schuko have been keeping the air clean for production and workplace environments in small-scale and industrial operations in the wood, plastics, paper and metal industries for 50 years now.

The Vacomat Range of compact wood dust filter systems is a recirculating solution for the extraction and filtration of harmful wood dust from machinery and tools.

The Vacomat Range

Schuko dust extractors are ready-to-plug-in extraction systems for indoor installation and connection to single or multi-machine workshops. With airflows of up to 8,000 m³/h, they can frequently be found in woodworking operations in which special safety requirements apply due to the risk of dust explosion.

The innovative mobile dust extractors in the Vacomat series were designed according to the new EU standard DIN EN 16770 as well as regulation GS-HO-07 of the trade association for wood- and metalworking industries (BGHM).

Each system is accredited with the test mark H3 (residual dust content < 0.1 mg/m³) and the GS (‘Tested Safety’) mark. To ensure healthy return air we exclusively use our high-quality filter material with dust class M.

All units within the Vacomat range are driven with modern high-efficiency motors (IE3) ‘made in Germany’ which help reduce energy costs. The flow-optimised housing interior and short connection paths keep air resistance low and provide for increased efficiency.

Various extraction performance levels and features are available to optimise the dust extractors for your requirements. There are six sizes to meet your requirements – from the space-saving single-point dust extractor to the powerful extraction centre for a complete machine outfit.

These dust extractors are also suitable for extraction of other materials such as plastic, paper and non-metals, materials up to dust explosion class St1 are suitable.

Product Datasheets

SchukoCone Filters

The Vacomat mobile dust extractor comes with patented SchukoCone® filter bags as a standard feature.

The SchukoCone® filter is a successful combination of an externally loaded filter bag and an internally loaded cone. For today’s system constructions this means approx. 60% more filter surface area with the same length and an up to 50% larger expansion chamber than in traditional dust extraction systems.

SchukoCone® filters should particularly be used for fine dust requiring a high filter surface area and a low filter surface loading rate because it is especially in such applications that the filters realise their tremendous potential.

With a decrease in filter surface loading rate a longer filter life is reached. The filter resistance drops and hence a lower fan output and less power are required.

Installation and Items Delivered

Vacomat mobile dust extractors are delivered preassembled and ready to plug in on single-use pallets (included). One or more chip bags are also included.

The Vacomat must be electronically connected to the machine tool to enable automatic triggering of filter bag regeneration when the machine tool is shut off. An electronics company can help. The supplied switchgear cabinet with integrated phase inverter is prepared for querying of a floating contact as well as three transducer coils (coils are not included).

The dust extractor is directly connected to the machines for extraction (connection nozzle size different for each model) with a flexible hose or rigid ductwork. Some of the connection parts can be found in the accessories section as well as our system components section.

Equipped with stable industrial-grade casters, the mobile Vacomat can be set up flexibly anywhere in your workshop. Need extraction for a different machine? Just release the brakes on the two casters and push the unit to the required location.
