Keep the respirable crystalline silica dust away and improve operator health and safety in mines using the DCP 30 during handheld drilling operations
Low air requirement of 27 l/s
Patented dry vacuum technology ensures three rock drills operate with the best suction efficiency for dust collection
99.58% filtration of the exhaust air
Highly efficient filter elements for filtration of the exhaust air up to 99.58% to prevent dust from the exhaust
Silent in operation
Effective silencer to reduce the noise exposure upto 88 dB
Easy filter cleaning mechanism
Filter cleaning or flushing helps prolong and improves suction efficiency. Vacuum indicator will indicate when it is time to clean/flush the filter
Simple & quick set up
Simple design makes it easy to set-up in less time, designed for quick plug ‘n’ play set-up with drilling shrouds and suction hoses
Safe disposal of dust
Collection of dry dust in a recyclable bag allows eco-friendly way of disposal of the collected dust
The suction hoses for each rock drill is 7m that gives wide area of operation around the DCP 30 for three rock drills
Let the dust not bother you anymore!

Working principle of DCP 30 pneumatic dust collector
DCP 30 is the first pneumatic dust control system in the market which can be used to collect dust at source while drilling with three handheld rock drills at the same time reducing the exposure of respirable crystalline silica dust, thereby, helps in improving the health and providing safe work conditions for the operators. Besides, it helps improve productivity!
Thanks to its patented vacuum technology, the DCP 30 is designed to work with compressed air as a power source that is available in the mines, consuming upto 27 l/s for collecting dust while operating with 3 rock drills at the same time.
DCP 30 comes along with the shroud attachments for handheld rock drills which helps to collect the dust at the source during drilling in a bag mounted on the DCP 30 unit. The bag complements to the safe disposal of the collected dust further reducing the impact on the environment. The Suction hose can be spread up to 7m enabling wide area of usage for the operators. The DCP 30 houses a high-efficient filter with 4 m2 surface area that allows 99.58% filtration of the exhaust air from the dust. The exhaust air passes through the two silencers at the top thereby reduces the sound level to 88dB and prevents any impact due to noise level exposure. Besides, DCP 30 also has filter cleaning mechanism that helps frequent cleaning to avoid clogged filter and it helps prolong the life time of the filters.
Now, the dust won't bother the operators anymore and they can focus on the productivity, while DCP 30 will help control the exposure of respirable crystalline silica dust
Why it is important to reduce the exposure of respirable crystalline silica?
Respirable crystalline silica dust is generated during the drilling operation generally referred to as flush cuttings. When the operators are exposed to a longer period, the small particles of the silica could severely affect the health and cause irreversible damage to the lungs known as Silicosis, which can lead to disability and death. Respirable crystalline dust also causes lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and kidney disease. These occupational diseases are life-threatening that annually affects thousands of workers across India.
Therefore, it is important to have preventive measures in place to lower the risk of poor health and unsafe working conditions for mine operators.
On behalf of the Government of India, Ministry of Labour & Employment, the Directorate General of Mines safety has issued a circular (Ref: DGMS(Tech.)(S&T) Circular No.01 dated 21st January 2010) to all Owners, Agents and Managers of mines to implement respirable dust measurements and control to prevent Pneumoconiosis (Silicosis) in mines.
"Quarries are a hotbed for dust".........Dust off your worries with the DCP 30 pneumatic dust collector
Three jack hammers operating in a quarry
A three jack hammer operation is usually required in drilling operations in quarries and DSI to break small rock. All you need is one DCP 30 dust collector and you will experience dust free operations.
Instead of 3 smaller dust collectors, one big capacity dust collector with the capability of handling 3 drill at one time is the answer to:
- value for money
- higher return on investment
- more efficiency
- no harmful dust or silica particles
What is line drilling?
Line drilling is useful in DSI - dimensional stone drilling where holes are drilled in a line to enable the operator to separate a block of stone.
How does DCP 30 work in line drilling application?
Line drilling requires drilling a series of holes that are very close together. This creates more dust. Hence use of a dust collector is of utmost importance.
Line drilling with the DCP 30 creates a dust free environment and protects other equipment on site while ensuring operator safety, due to this dust collector's capacity to work with three drills at one time.
