What classes of dust are there?

We provide a clear guideline

Dust that is generated is divided into three classes. These indicate the extractor's suitability for any given dust and the specified maximum allowable concentrations (MAC). And they define the corresponding filter system's required degree of filtration. It is important to choose the dust class of your mobile dust extractor according to the material you work with.

Design approval Degree of filtration, filter system Suitability
Dust class L1) > 99 % Hazardous dust with limit values3) > 1 mg/m3
For simple and harmless dust, e.g. household dust, soil and lime.
Dust class M1) > 99.9 % Hazardous dust with limit values3) > 0.1 mg/m3
For all wood dust and dust originating from repair compound, filler and clear coats, plaster, cement, concrete, tile cement and paints such as latex and oil-based paints or quartziferous materials such as sand and pebbles.
