it’s a dust containment or control system.
Ultimate goal of a dust containment system
Provide maximum dust control and containment with a minimum of dust collection.
A transparent tank that houses the
Longopac bag and offers another level
of security in the event the bag tears or bursts
The original HEPA filter was designed in
the 1940s and was used in the
Manhattan Project to prevent the spread
of airborne radioactive contaminants.
It was commercialised in the 1950s,
and the original term became a registered
trademark and a generic term for
highly efficient filters.
HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters
are hospital grade filters designed
to arrest very fine particles
Unlike membrane filters at this pore size, where particles as wide as the largest opening or distance between fibres cannot pass in between them at all,
Where particles following a line of flow in the air stream come within one radius of a fibre and adhere to it.
Where larger particles are unable to avoid fibres by following the curving contours of the air stream and are forced to embed in one of them directly; this effect increases with diminishing fibre separation and higher air flow velocity.
An enhancing mechanism that is a result of the collision with gas molecules by the smallest particles, especially those below 0.1 µm in diameter, which are thereby impeded and delayed in their path through the filter; this action raises the probability that a particle will be stopped by either of the two mechanisms above; it becomes dominant at lower air flow velocities.
it's unlike any other dust containment unit you have ever seen.
Designed for the floor sanding market, collecting even the finest dust particles.
It is far more efficient for the fast recovery of fine wood dust.
It can be connected to any of our floor sanders
The Longo Pack is a continious bag
fitted in the DCS unit desinged
to keep the dust away from us.
Tie it off with a pull tie,
Tie another tie two inches higher, cut the bag
between the two ties.
We now have a bag of dust to throw away
and a new bag in place to keep working.
All this was done without contact with any dust.
We did not believe a wood floor
could be sanded with
virtually no dust
A first we were a little skeptical
about the claims made
for the DCS unit.
There was no need to use
protective face masks,
no plastic hung on doors.
While sanding the air was clean.
There was virtually no dust left behind
This thing realy worked -
we liked the system so much
We immediately purchased two DCS units.
Our jobs are healthier for our clients
After the first job

With the introduction of the DCS Dust Containment System,
Acorn Floor Sanding are the pioneers for dustless floor sanding.
In fact one of only a few floor sanding company who can sand wood floors
Simple to use and very efficent
HEPA filters are designed to
target much smaller pollutants
The dust will fall down into a
transparent dust container
under the cyclone separator.
The Teflon like coated HEPA air filters capture 99.97% of materials down to 0.3 microns.
Air tests show the DCS is over 100 times cleaner than the old cloth bag system.
Proven to be one of the least efficent dust collection method available
Ideally, it’s not a dust collection system,
