Thinking about buying one . And anyone have this dust collector ? Or know anything about it or the company ?
No one
Yes, we have two of these. We use them for pedicuring to pick up dust from filing the feet. If you want some details, email me and let me know.

Can you please tell me if the Salon Pure air1 does work on getting rid of acrylic vapors.
Thank you!
Can't comment on that filter, but what you need is a filter that has a large active carbon filter stage because it's this that removes chemical vapours from the air.

This carbon (charcoal) filter needs to be deep because it takes time for the carbon to react to the chemicals. If the carbon is thin, most chemical vapours will simply be blown back into the salon. The carbon filter we use in Sweden is 5" deep.

The carbon filter also needs to have a lot of carbon in it. That's because only the outside surface of the active carbon granules can be used to neutralise the chemical vapours. This means that only 10-20% of the weight of this filter is useful. So a carbon filter that weighs 5 kg (11 lbs) is able to remove between 0.5 to 1 kg of chemicals from the air. That's enough for between 400 to 500 customer services before the carbon filter has to be replaced. However, a carbon filter that weighs only 0.25 kg would have to be replaced every 12 to 27 customers which is impractical and too expensive for most salons.

What I don't understand about the Salon Pure Air is that their video appears to show the air being filter in this order:

stage 1: large dust particles
stage 2: chemical vapours
stage 3: invisible dust particles (that's also dangerous because can go deep into the lungs)

I would be concerned that the carbon filter could get coated by the invisible dust and make it less effective. So that's a question to ask the company. The system we use does it like this:

stage 1: large dust particles
stage 2: invisible dust particles (that's also dangerous because can go deep into the lungs)
stage 3: chemical vapours

If you speak to the company, ask them if the product has been independently tested and ask what percentage of air is cleaned when working with gel, and when working with acrylic. These specs aren't stated on the website that I could see. They do mention a HEMA 99.9% filter but that, as far as I know, is only related to dust not chemical vapours.

You should also ask what the recommended filter replacement times are (in terms of number of customer services, will be different for gel, acrylic or if you use both), so you can calculate the running costs.

What I do like about the company is that they are filter specialists who work in a lot of industries. The filters aren't made (as in some European countries) by table manufacturers or by a company that has no background in the filter industry.
Thank you so much for your response. And just wondering what kind of ventilation unit are you using in your salon. You mentioned that the carbon filter you use is 5" deep. Does it work removing acrylic vapors? Thank you!
I love my Pure Air
Does it work well in capturing the acrylic vapors?I work with a lot of acrylic nails and wondering if the Salon pure air1 can suck up the fumes? Thanks!
Yes . The Industry Source now one
@lisa1969 - unfortunately the unit we use is only available in Sweden. Yes, it has been tested by an independent laboratory to remove 99.97% of all dust and chemical vapours from the air. But I spent a lot of time research professional filters and talking to different manufacturers in Europe - that's why choose this one.
