The power head is made from drawn steel which is then epoxy coated and houses the highly efficient TwinFlo motor. Sound deadening keeps the noise very low and a plug-in replaceable power cable is fitted as standard. The integral PCB provides power to the external socket and powers up the vacuum motor once you turn on your power tool. Auto shut-off after you turn off your power tool keeps the hoses clear. A selection switch for manual use is also fitted.
The container of the extractor is equally strong, being made from Numatic's own Structafoam material. The Tritex filter system traps 99% of dust down to 0.5 micron in size. HepaFlo bags are recommended for use to ensure safe waste disposal.
A set of castors allows easy movement around the workplace and a big grab handle gives a comfortable grip when lifting. The kit includes a 3m hose with clips to hold your power tool cable, a stepped rubber adaptor, an alloy floor wand and a 300mm floor tool.
A further upgrade to 'M' Class filtration can be made by fitting the optional HEPA filter module. This simply clips into place between the power head and container. The Tritex filters must be used as well. This will give the best possible filtration and satisfies the HSE's recommendations.
