Airbox: the dust collector with water filtering

A dust collector with water technology

The Airbox dust collector with water filtering guarantees great use versatility during various stone workings. The structure in AISI 304 stainless steel is very sturdy and the low maintenance required makes this dust collector the most common for companies in stone industries and more .

Dust collector with water filtering

The technology of our dust collectors uses special brass nozzles that create a waterfall. This barrier prevents the passage of dust, capturing it and knocking it down in the below recovery tank. The Airbox can be used with dry and water tools. It is also equipped with powerful fans that allow optimal suction even at considerable distances from the machine. The operator can therefore work in complete safety and with maximum freedom of movement.

The Magnum suction arm

Sometimes there is a need to further expand the work area, moving away a few meters from the dust collector. For this reason we have designed the Magnum suction arm, the best support to extend the working areas up to 8 meters from the dust collector. Magnum therefore significantly increases the Airbox ‘s versatility, by ensuring a great position flexibility, it permits to the operator a huge versatility. This suction arm can also be used with our dry dust extractors such as Airdry suction wall.

    How does a clarification system work ?

    scheme of a purification plants system operation

    Water clarification is the process ,thanks to which, we can obtain the separation of the mud from the water. Since 1985 our company has been designing and manufacturing plants for water and dust clarification in stone and glass production processes. Our thirty- year experience allows us to support customers in choosing the best solution to satisfy the always more restrictive laws regarding employees and environmental safety. Clicking here you can see some systems we have supplied all over the world, from Germany to Australia, from USA to Mexico.

    How our clarification system works

    scheme of a purification plants system operation











    A. Waste water coming from the production process, is collected into a pit equipped with a submersible pump (1).

    B. the pump sends the waste water to a standard clarifier (3) or to a clarifier with lamellar packs (3).

    C. If required and after accurate tests on sample waste water , the flocculent solution prepared inside the SKID (2), is injected into the clarifier, beginning the separation process of sludge from water.

    D. Clarified water , freed of suspended sludge weight, rises up and overflows from the top of the silo and collected into a storage tank (4). Water is then ready to be used again the production process thanks to Smart Boost (5) booster pumps.

    E. The mud, collected on the bottom of the clarifier, is discharged into the filter press homogenization tank ( 6) or into special bags.

    F.  The thickened sludge is pumped through the filter press (7), which dehydrates and compresses it obtaining completely dried panels, ready to be disposed. The filter press is sized according to dimensions and type of installed system.

    The following video shows an example of the clarification system operation.


    The SKID, that is the flocculent dosing station



    SKID a semi-automatic dosing station

    Flocculent (or o Poly-electrolyte) is a non-harmful chemical product that strongly increases the depuration performances of the system. Thanks to its action, the suspended solid sludge particles, aggregate each other forming larger particles, which are heavier and easier to be separated from the water.

    Our SKID is a semi-automatic or full automatic flocculent dosing station provided of:

    • agitator to keep the flocculent solution properly mixed,

    • high precision membrane dosing pump,

    • connection to the water treatment main control box.


    Filtration for CNC spindles

    a purification plant self cleaning filter for CNC machines

    On request, our water treatment systems, can be also equipped with special CNC filters , developed to meet the cooling requirements of CNC machines’ spindles. These spindles, normally requires a water depuration level difficult to be obtained just with the standard filtration. The application of these filters, allows to increase the filtering performances of the system, reaching the required depuration level.

    We currently have two types of filters in our production range:

    • the self –cleaning filter to feed up to 5 CNC machines with a purification constant up to 20μ;
    • the cartridge filter to feed one CNC, but which is able to reach 3 gradual depuration stages in 100μ, 60μ and 25μ.

      The new Air Quattro and Blucomb BCM 11

      Two news have pointed out our presence at the Marmomac 2019: the revised version of the dry dust collector bench Air Quattro and the BCM 11, which is the 11.000 litres model of our lamellar water clarifier. Both were successful, catching the interest of many visitors.

      Dust collector bench Air Quattro – new version 2019

      We have introduced many technical innovations which make the Air Quattro, our dry dust collector bench, even more performing. In this new version we replaced the cartridge filters with high efficiency and easier to clean filtering sleeves. They also have a Snap-ring joint, which allows a quick and handy removal.

      We improved the suction capacity by repositioning the motor, which now has a more direct aspiration line with the ingoing slots. This repositioning allowed us to install an outgoing chimney for the purified air, which in this way is conveyed upwards. This is a great advantage compared to all other similar products on the market, which discharge the exhaust air from the sides of the bench, creating a lot of annoyance to people who works near the bench. On request we can even supply pipes to conveying this air outside the building.

      Finally, we installed three plugs on the control panel, to allow workers to connect working tools normally used.


      Lamellar packs water clarifier compact system

      Lamellar packs water clarifier BCM 11

      In Verona we announced a new model of the BCM Blucomb Monobloc with capacity of 11.000 litres. This variant of our compact lamellar water clarifier exceeds by just 50 cm the height of the BCM 8.5. The new model maintains all the characteristics of the Blucomb series, allowing to treat high quantity of water in reduced overall dimensions. To grant a higher depuration level and at the same time keep the clarifier cleaned inside, it’s possible to install two self-cleaning systems, which can be controlled from the main PLC: one is for the filter press and the other one is for the lamellar packs. The capacity of the BCM 11 is suitable for medium – sized company: its structure allows to to ship it via container and install it very easily through few operations. These characteristics attracted the interest of many visitors which came to visit us during Marmomac.

      2019, a year full of news

      2019 has been a year dedicated to innovation for us. We started in January at the TISE 2019 in Las Vegas where we presented the BCM 8.5 and we arrived in September at the Marmomac where we brought the BCM 11 and the new version of the Air Quattro. Innovation is a core value for us, in fact we are always looking for new solutions to meet our customer’s needs.

                Our dry dust collectors showing up in Germany

                dry dust collectors benches

                On 18th and 19th May we exposed our dry dust collectors, the Air Dry and the Air Quattro, at the König Open House in Karlsruhe. The fair was organized by J. König, our exclusive distributor for Germany, and it took place at the company headquarters, which has an expo area of 2.500 square meters. The Open House attracted more than a thousand visitors from all over the country and there were around 60 partner companies of J. König. This is the second event for its relevance in the German stone industry. For this event we exposed our two dry depuration systems.

                Air Dry – dry dust collector

                Air Dry is a Suction cabin with dry technology provided with water and oil proof filtering sleeves that give longer life time. The aspiration system, which is composed by big capacity fans with high acoustic insulation, produce a very efficient suction flow. Indeed the mounted filters allow a filtering efficiency which reach 99%. The aspired dust fall down into the collection boxes which are easy to empty. Our dry dust collectors are available in two different versions: Air Dry 330 and Air Dry 430.

                Air Quattro – dry collector bench

                The dry collector bench Air Quattro uses the same filtration system as the Air Dry aspiration cabin. Designed to increase the filtering capacity of the traditional water bench, it grants to the operator a flexible usage during all the working phases. As for the Air Dry, the self-cleaning process is controlled by the internal PLC. The dust, removed from the filters, is collected into the drawers on the bottom of the machine. Mobile bulkheads also allow to drive aspiration flow as preferred, making it stronger in some areas, if required.

                This year too, the experience was exciting and full of interesting meetings. We sincerely thank J. König for inviting us at their Open House and we also thank all the visitors who visited our stand in these two days. Our next meeting in Germany is already scheduled: from the 17th to the 20th June 2020 we will be at the Stone+tec in Nürnberg. Don’t miss it and come to visit us
