Chicago Pneumatic All-In-One Dust Extraction Solution

The compact and portable solution, comprising a powerful CPA5000 pneumatic vacuum cleaner and a lightweight shroud, is designed for use with traditional pneumatic hand tools.

Chicago Pneumatic has introduced a new all-in-one dust extraction solution to make metalworking applications safer and more efficient. The compact and portable solution, comprising a powerful CPA5000 pneumatic vacuum cleaner and a lightweight shroud, is designed for use with traditional pneumatic hand tools to enable dust-free drilling, grinding, and sanding, no matter where the work takes place. The solution is ideal for a wide range of operating environments.

“Metal dust poses a serious risk to workers’ health if inhaled. It can also put the surrounding facility and machinery at risk, as it is ten times more combustible than wood dust,” says Damien Feller, global product marketing manager spares & solutions at Chicago Pneumatic. “That is why it is vital to ensure effective mobile dust extraction is achieved, especially in applications where no central vacuum is available. Chicago Pneumatic wants to help managers address these risks while supporting the need for improved productivity. The effective removal of dust particles protects workers’ health and helps the workplace comply with clean air regulation. Furthermore, with less dust impairing visibility and no need to pause work for cleaning, workers can turn their full attention to delivering the best possible results.” 

CPA5000 – CPA5001

Designed for ease of use, the vacuum cleaner weighs only 1.3 kilos, whereas most vacuuming solutions on the market average 30 kilos. The lightweight and compact size make it easy to carry. The shrouds are light yet durable, and simple to adapt to existing hand tools. They feature clear windows that enable 225-degree visibility, allowing workers to monitor the progress of the task at all times. 

The same airline is used to power both the hand tool and the vacuum cleaner, simplifying use. The hose features a one-inch interface to optimize flow for effective and quick dust extraction, delivered with high efficiency, thanks to cyclonic action. The suction force is created by a venturi system inside the vacuum, which allows for powerful dust removal without affecting the airflow or the hand tool’s performance. To optimize safety, the solution features a HEPA filter, which can capture even the smallest dust particles. 

Both the shrouds and the CPA5000 vacuum cleaner are made from Lexan – the same material used in astronauts’ helmets – making them virtually indestructible and, therefore, well-suited for use in even the harshest of environments. The CPA5000 can also be used on its own, without the shroud, if further cleaning of the workplace is required. 

The new solution extends Chicago Pneumatic’s existing portfolio of dust extraction accessories. The range includes a selection of accessories for angle sanders and angle grinders; a dust extraction hose, a bag and a complete dust collection system for self-vacuum sanders; and a dust extraction hose to connect central vacuum sanders to an external central vacuum.
