Swarf Vaccum Cleaners

Around the float cage is a perforated steel filter to prevent swarf being sucked into the vacuum motors.

Sitting in the canister is a perforated steel basket with a lifting handle. This basket holds the metal chipping's/swarf. When the basket is lifted out of the canister the liquid drains out. The canister is fitted with a drain hose and stopper to empty the canister of liquid.

Chimney Sweep Vacuum Cleaner

 Chimney Sweep Vacuum Cleaner: Most Chimney Sweeps have their own views as to what they want in a Vacuum Cleaner.

One or Two Motors - 20, 30, 45 Litre Capacity, Stainless Steel Canister, With or Without Trolley, With or Without Hepa Cartridge Filter, Various types of Filtration Media, Various types of Filter Protectors, 38mm or 51mm Suction Hose and Accessories.


We were approached by Mr David Moore Chimney Sweep Essex who was recommended to contact us by another sweep, and we came up with the following Vacuum Cleaner to meet his requirements.



Two 1,000 watt By-Pass Motors with individual On/Off Switches with Protective Switch Covers, Six Metres 3 core Cable fitted with moulded plug, fitted to the Canister Cable Hook (we can also fit two cable cleats if required) Canister Carrying Handles can be fitted to suit individual requirements, but David felt they were was just about in the right position, Screwed Hose Connection on the Canister with Blanking Cap and Strap (so no soot can leak). Mild Steel or Stainless Steel Trolley available

if required alternatively a castor base trolley.


But as you all know Filtration is the biggest concern, some like the soot to go directly into the canister and others into a disposable paper bag whatever you want you still need Good Filtration and we offer Polyester Needlefelt with Micro Porous Finish which provides good release properties but also available with Nylon finish, Anti-Static Material, Grey Polypropylene Resin High Efficiency.


We also offer a range of Filter Protectors and this can be Paper Type, material type such as Satin Nylon Finish or Black SpunBond Material finish whichever you use they still need to be kept clean.


The HEPA Cartridge Filter fitted to this machine having glass fibre paper element 99.997% efficient on particles to 0.6 microns to BS 3928 secured to the negative pressure. This Filter has a very large surface area and will therefore give improved performance and a greatly increased filter life 38mm or 51mm wire reinforced suction hose and accessories to suit most requirements.
