"Enter a Whole New Age of Dust Control"
The Razaire 530 is the smallest, quietest, most powerful and versatile portable dust collector in the world. Because it is a modular system, it can handle the dust control needs of any small home workshop - from collecting dust at the source (rotary carving tools, belt sanders, etc.) to overall shop air filtration.
How does it work? Dusty air enters the front of the unit, drawn in by a powerful impeller fan. A filter traps the dust that removes more than 90% of a 3-4 micron sized particles (about the size of baby powder). The clean air is then exhausted out the side. For most carving applications, carving inside the acrylic hood is not necessary - working 6" in front of it usually provides satisfactory results. With enough suction to pick up shavings from a planer (with a 4" hose attached), the Razaire 530 can handle it all.
Filters are easily removed for cleaning (filter is cleaned by tapping it into a plastic bag or a garbage can). It can be cleaned many times before replacement is necessary. The flameproof ABS cabinet has a built-in lamp holder that accepts a standard swing-arm lamp (not included), giving you excellent light where you need it most - right at the intake. The Razaire 530 is also supplied with an 8 inch acrylic hood that breaks down into 3 flat panels for portability.
Several accessories can be added to increase the versatility of this system. Everything from adding higher efficiency filters or extra filter stages (for increased efficiency) to a 4" hose adapter, a lap-top tray, a motor tool hanger, and a deflector to direct the air towards the back.
