Full Version: Which ventilation/dust remover??

I am looking into purchasing a table top ventilation system- mostly to get rid of the dust as I do mainly acrylic and am tired of being covered in it!! I have this one like this, it sets on the table: [Image: n_385.jpg&width=150&height=150]
and it doesn't really help much, but I like the arm rest aspect. I was thinking a Valentino. How loud are they though? And how often do you have to change filters? Any other suggestions?
I like the Valentino. I would prefer a Salon Pure but it's very expensive. Hopefully, in the nearish future. The Valentino is not very loud. It has an adjustable fan speed on it. You empty the filter after every client. Not sure how long they last... I was told a few weeks depending on use?
Thanks Melissa!
I love the Luraco! Compact, low noise/low vibration and good ventilation. Not to mention the price is under $100. Works like a dream!

Are you referring to the Partigon, by Luraco? I have that one. When using the hand piece adapter on the drill it is cumbersome . I would like something like the Valentino but without investing too much.
I have the Luraco Chemstop Air Cleaner and Dust Collector. It's 5x5 and about $65.00, sits right on my table. Here's a link,

I don't want to sound like a idiot. How does it suction when you're using the drill? Does it suction sideways? How close to the drill does it have to be?
@ Nurse Nail Tech: I haven't turned it sideways, but I suppose I can try it out. I keep it right on my station so it's pretty close to my e-file. I'll test it out over the weekend and let you know how close the e-file should be.

lovethosetoes, can you post a pic on how you hand the Chemstop set up at your station?
Thanks.
I use the Salon Pure Air at my table, it is wonderful for dust & odor. I also have the Partigon at the pedi station - it does ok. I'm hoping when I move my shop to arrange the two areas in such a way that I can use the Salon Pure Air for both. If you haven't looked in a while, I would recommend you check them out - their price has dropped quite a bit since I bought mine! I recently got the "muffler" for it and it's quieter now too!
Can you show a pic of the set up? Does the Salon Pure suck the dust?

I am very interested in the Salon Pure Air for use during a pedicure. But I am tired of buying things that don't really work all that well. I just talked with the folks at Salon Pure Air about using their system during a pedicure, but would really like to hear an opinion from a nail technician on this product. I would like to use the Salon Pure Air to pull the dust away from the feet while using the electric "Fabeaulous Feet Inc." foot file that has hygienic dermabrasion discs. This electric file does a remarkable job of reducing calluses, but creates a very fine dust that can go everywhere. This electric file is the single best tool I have ever used to reduce calluses - it is amazingly effective.
However, I will not use this electric file on clients until I find a system to suck up the dust as I work. There is no way in the world I want to breath in the fine dust from client's feet - too many negative health reasons for that. I purchased the company's own dust sucking lamp that you are supposed to have on while using their file, but it is horrifyingly inept at taking up all of the dust you generate from using this file system.
I know I can just use a hand file to reduce callused skin, but I have terrible tendonitis in my wrists, and pedicuring all day long is very hard on my hands - especially when working on very heavy clients trying to hold up their leg and file very bad callus - killer. Even if I didn't have tendonitis, I would still think that this file is a remarkable tool for a serious pedicure technician's arsenal of tools to help clients feet look their best. The discs on this tool refine and reduce the callused skin to such a smooth and fine surface - there is really nothing like it.
You can look on my website - I believe there's a picture on there of my table set-up. In my new location I am thinking about getting the rolling cart for the Salon Pure Air and just moving it over to the pedi station when I do gel toes.

As for using it for the dust on callus filing - I think it would work very well for that. The hose is self supporting, movable and quite wide - so you could position it just to the side and a touch higher than the foot and it would just pull all that fine dust in.
