DUST CLASSES AT A GLANCE
Proper vacuuming is the motto!
As mere vacuuming is neither enough for the lawmaker nor for your health, which is priority
The dust classes L, M, and H clear away the dust that is generated in your workshop or the construction site.
Prevent it with the right dust extractor.

There are no special disposal regulations.
Dust class M (medium)
Dusts with AGW of < 0.1 mg/m³ are available here.
These vacuums are tested as a complete device.
Their maximum transmittance is less than 0.1 %.
The disposal must generate as little dust as possible.
Dust class H (high)
Dusts with AGW of 0.1 mg/m³ belong to this class,
all carcinogenic dusts as well as dusts which
