Central vacuum system: the solution for handling extra-fine paint dusts

Central vacuum system: the solution for handling extra-fine paint dusts

Lorenzo Valerio owns a painting factory in Mariano Comense (CO), where he treats both wood and metal, and the difficult relationship with dust and waste is a constant in his business. For years, the operators in his plant have been working with orbital machines connected to wheeled vacuum cleaners.

Firstly, the dust and waste was never really removed and the staff went home extremely dirty. Maintenance had also become untenable because it was very invasive and not always effective.

In winter, the additional vacuum system in the sanding cabin sucks in thousands of cubic metres of warm air, which increases energy consumption for heating.

Finally, the orbital machines connected to the wheeled vacuum cleaners emitted a very high-pitched and annoying whistle when they were being used, which caused hearing problems.

"I got to know Sistem Air thanks to their Area Manager Maurizio Boglio during a course held with an electrical distributor. I was immediately struck by the usefulness and potential of their products." - said installer Antonio Fratea.

"And it was while discovering the central vacuum system that I had the intuition to propose it to my customer Lorenzo Valerio for his paint facility. It immediately seemed to me to be the best tool to put an end to my increasingly constant maintenance work. And therefore to his problems caused by the use of wheeled units." - continued Fratea.

"Maurizio supported me in the design of the system, suggesting that the central vacuum unit be combined with a Turbix dust separator. The installation was relatively easy. And the quality and capacity of the system have greatly reduced my maintenance work. To the delight of my client, who has had no further work stoppages in this respect".

"With the central vacuum system, the change was clear and in many ways." - said Lorenzo Valerio. "First of all, we don't come home so dirty anymore. And acoustically, too, there is no comparison, thanks to the quietness of this system."

"We have an 8-metre sanding booth and, thanks in part to the positive experience we had with the central vacuum system on 3 of our stations, I decided to expand the system to 5 stations connected to the central vacuum system." - continued Lorenzo Valerio.

"Undoubtedly, thanks to the central vacuum system, not only do we breathe in far less harmful dust, but the work is smoother because the paint waste doesn't stick to the worktop."

"There has also been an impact on heating costs because with the central vacuum system I no longer have to use the additional vacuum system, which used to suck in a lot of hot air as well as dust." - concluded Lorenzo Valerio.

A system with global potential

According to the installer Fratea: "The central vacuum system is an excellent system overall. Its ease of installation and low maintenance requirements make it attractive for any industrial application. Not to mention its versatility, which allows it to adapt to the different sizes of factories and which I have experienced myself when I carried out an extension in this painting factory."

"I chose the central vacuum system both because of the trust I have in my installer and because I immediately realised the potential of this system. After some time I can say that Sistem Air Pro's central vacuum system has been the solution to my problems." - agreed Lorenzo Valerio.
