Compatible With Most Popular Floor Sanders

Unlike competitive dust containment systems, the Vortex DCS doesn’t require messy, cloth bags or large, expensive trailers. Dust is captured at the source and safely contained up to 100′ away using an industrial 35-gallon vacuum. The vacuum is accompanied by our patented retrofit cyclone that mounts conveniently to the floor sander.

  • Compact and lightweight design simplifies storage and transport.
  • Attaches quickly and easily onto the sander’s dust exhaust pipe / DCS retrofit handle.
  • Cyclone rotates 270 degrees to always provide the best possible floor view.
  • Relieves 75% of air pressure from the sander’s blower, improving total suction performance.
  • Releases breathable air through a serviceable / replaceable HEPA filter.

Use Multiple Floor Tools Simultaneously

The Vortex’s sander cyclone allows for two tools to be connected simultaneously (additional hose and splitter required). These configurations are perfect for contractors who want to have the edger in operation right after the sander has finished, or for workers looking to double their sanding/buffing capacity.

Integrated Pulse Filter Cleaner

There are few tasks worse than dealing with a clogged vacuum filter; cleaning them can be messy, time consuming, and it’s often the only way to restore suction. Now you can clean your filter without disassembling or turning off the vacuum!

  • Removes clogs from the filter in seconds.
  • Works while the vacuum is in operation.
  • Minimizes worker’s exposure to harmful wood dust.
  • Manual operation puts you in control of your system.

Full-Unit Certified HEPA Dust Extractor

In the home renovation and professional contracting industry, there’s no substitute for full-unit HEPA certification. That’s why the Vortex’s vacuum includes a printed certificate to document that the unit has been independently tested and certified to strict EPA guidelines, protecting you from expensive fines! With this certification you can work comfortably with the knowledge that your vacuum system is fully sealed to eliminate leakage, protecting the work environment and those within it.

  • HEPA filter media rated as 99.97% efficient at 0.3 microns.
  • Meets and exceeds all EPA RRP requirements for contractors – including lead!
  • Requires zero pre-loading and works at peak efficiency right out of the box.
  • The filters’ wide-spaced pleating and non-stick coating facilitates quick and easy maintenance.

Automatic Dust Bin Level Sensor

Oneida Air Systems’ patented Dust Sentry™ takes the guesswork out of using your vacuum! This adjustable optical sensor detects when the drum has been filled to a pre-set level and flashes a high visibility strobe light to alert you when it’s time to empty.

Capable of detecting nearly any type of wet/dry material, the Dust Sentry will significantly streamline your workflow and put you back in control of how long you can keep working.

35-Gallon Steel Drum with Automatic Bag Holder

The Vortex vacuum features one of the largest waste containers available for a wet/dry vacuum–at a whopping 35-gallon capacity! It’s intended for contractors and other professionals who need the freedom to work without worrying about constantly emptying their vacuum.

Waste disposal is made fast and simple thanks to the vacuum’s automatic bag holder system that uses vacuum pressure to keep plastic bags open inside the drum. When you know the drum is full (thanks to the built-in bin level sensor), simply remove the lid, tie off the bag, and lift it out!

Supports Up To 100 Feet of 2″ Diameter Hose

The Vortex vacuum can be positioned up to 100ft away from the floor sander, outside or in the garage, safely containing the dust and freeing up floorspace! 50ft of crush-resistant, static bonded hose is included with the system and can be coiled in the drum for storage and transport.

Additional hose lengths and splitters are also available for contractors with multiple flooring tools running simultaneously.
