Supplier News

Kennards Concrete Care has expanded its range of equipment for controlling dust during demolition or concrete grinding, profiling and planing. Vacuums, separators and air cleaners can be hired from the company’s outlets in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.

Small, medium and large vacuums are available, with single or double dust bins, for connection to grinders, planers, shot blasters, mowers and other equipment with dust ports.

They include the popular Hilton Dust Easter – exclusive to Kennards Concrete Care – for use with small to medium machines. Its cyclonic action “spins” dust towards the end and sides of the bag, minimising contact with the filters. Vacuum options also include a wet-dry model and adding a booster motor to medium size vacuums to double suction. Separators, which are used with vacuums to reduce filter blockage, collect 93 per cent of dust before it enters the vacuum.

Air cleaners can be used independently in small areas or to provide support on jobs where a vacuum is being used and are ideal where equipment does not have a dedicated dust port.

Two models of air cleaners are available from Kennards Concrete Care.

The first unit operates on 240v 10amp power, has a fan that is 500mm in diameter, and produces a flow capacity of 6800cfm. It can be used with or without a sock attachment, which is seven metres long and 1.2 metres in diameter when inflated. Zippers allow the contents to be emptied and the sock washed. The second model, which is not available at all hire centres at this stage, is smaller and very portable, weighing just 45kg and having wheels.

Air is cleansed at the rate of 2500 cubic metres per hour and it has two filters for capturing big and very fine particles.
