Product Watch: Cyclone Technology
The MK Diamond IXL Vacuum Shroud, for concrete and surface grinding dust control, has been designed to utilize the air velocity created by the rotating grinding wheel to efficiently channel dust particles away from the work surface. The IXL Shroud’s unique snail-shape design creates a higher centrifugal force that expels the dust particles away, in cyclone fashion, from the grinding cup wheel into the vacuum hook-up port. This technology improves removal of particles, which further enhances the grinding process.
Controlling dust is important for health and environmental issues, and this shroud addresses those concerns. The IXL Shroud can be used with a vacuum system or with an approved bag if a vacuum is not available, thus reducing risk of respiratory problems and saving time during clean up.
