Downdraught Bench for Dust Extraction
A key part of our client’s process is cleaning down tools and equipment after hire so that they are in pristine condition and suitable for the next use. As a result of this tool clean down, fine dust is created and Beam were contacted to provide a suitable solution to extract the dust.
Following discussions on site with our expert engineers, a downdraught bench for dust extraction was provided into the workshop to remove the fine dust being created by tool clean down. During the clean down process the harmful dusts and contaminants are extracted away and filtered, helping to maintain a healthy work environment. With this downdraught bench allowing for clean down of filters and other service parts it means that they can be re-used and maintained for longer leading to cost-savings.
This plug and play system includes a downdraught working surface as well as optional side, rear and top enclosure.
A full system set up and detailed demonstration was provided to the client at the time of delivery.

Balloo Hire had been looking to improve the dust extraction system currently used in our depots and sought a supplier with the necessary expertise to help us identify a suitable system which would fit the needs of the business.
The level of support provided by Mark Kelly and the Beam team has proved to be invaluable throughout this process. Time spent discussing and reviewing the options available and the various pros and cons, enabled us to make a well informed decision on the most appropriate extraction system for our business, as we service and maintain a diverse range of tools and equipment.
Our first downdraught bench was fitted in June. As part of the installation and commissioning process, Mark provided our fitters with excellent guidance and practical demonstrations on the effectiveness of the system. Accepting the recommendation to install the down draft bench has had an immediate impact on improving not only our working processes, but more importantly, a positive impact with staff who are delighted with the equipment.
Beam have proven themselves to be an excellent company to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending them. Such is the success of our first installation, that we have placed further orders as we continue the role out across all or our depots.
