Portable Extractors

Dangerous dusts created during industrial tasks are extremely hazardous to the health of workers, especially during indoor work such as refurbishments and renovations.Large volumes of dangerous dust are often created by workers handling power tools processing wood, stone and concrete.

A portable filtered extraction vacuum with a source extraction fitting can create a safe, clean and productive working environment for all workers on site. Our portable high vacuum extraction systems come fitted with high efficiency HEPA filters, which capture particles <3 nanometers and exhaust clean air back into the working environment. These extraction units have the ability to fit directly to power tools, either by means of a connector, or a guard attachment that fits directly onto the working end of the tool.

When the power tool is attached and the system is running, dusts and light rubbles created by the process are extracted into the vacuum system before ever reaching the breathing space of the worker. With the right vacuum and guard this system is an extremely effective way of removing dust and collecting it safely for disposal. Most ordinary site vacuums do not feature the technical filter elements required to safeguard your health and will in fact leave, or often spread, the most dangerous small particles of RCS/Wood in the air you breathe.

The AES range of portable extractors from Dustcontrol are specifically designed to deal with hazardous dusts and incorporate three-stage filtration including HEPA filters, pulse cleaning, filter monitoring and dust free bag exchange.


The DC 2900 is our most popular portable dust extractor. The DC2900 is suitable for vacuum cleaning and source extraction from handheld power tools (with up to 5” suction casings) and small table saws. Ideal for workers processing wood or light stone applications.

The DC 2900 has a sturdy steel chassis with large mobile wheels, but is still lightweight and portable. The DC 2900 can be ordered with a plastic bag (DC 2900c) or with a steel container (DC 2900a). Collection in a steel container makes the DC 2900a ideal for use with sharp items such as metal chips.

The DC 3900c Twin is a portable yet powerful dust extractor suitable for large quantities of dust and rubble due to its integrated pre-separator. The DC3900 is particularly suitable for concrete grinding since 80–90% of the coarse materials are separated in the pre-separator chamber, with the remaining dust entering into the filter cyclone. The 3900c Twin is a popular machine since it is powerful enough for most worksite applications, yet it can easily be moved and transported. The air flow capacity is suitable for concrete floor grinding machines with diamond discs of up to 500 mm/20” diameter
