  QUESTION: Please add link to Festool website re HEPA dust extraction, 30 Aug 2005, Victoria Australia

CLEANTEC® dust extraction:

Leading the way in OHS in Australia Guidance notes from various OHS organisations around Australia recommend the usage of a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter in vacuum products. Therefore Festool would like to provide some information about its CLEANTEC® (CT) mobile dust extractor range - the first mobile dust extractors sold in Australia that are supplied with HEPA filter as standard!

Dust is an EXTREME HEALTH HAZARD and can cause severe health problems such as asthma, scarred lungs and cancer. Workplaces generating any dust, such as on the building site, carpentry and joinery trades, in mining, quarrying, demolition, blasting, foundry or cast work, auto refinishing, welding, sawing, lagging, insulation, aerosol work. would benefit from a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter. Festool's objective is to help improve OHS in those workplaces.

Therefore Festool's CT dust extractors - CT 22, CT 33, CT 44 and CT 55 - are the first mobile dust extractors, sold in Australia by a power tool manufacturer, which are supplied with HEPA filter as standard. Festool's HEPA filters have a dust separation efficiency of more than 99.95% and correspond to HEPA class H13 as per the International Standard EN 1822.
HEPA: because health is important.

Festool CT mobile dust extractors can be easily connected to most power tools available on the market. However, Festool power tools have been designed and manufactured to provide maximum dust extraction performance for over 80 years, as part of the company's ongoing innovative strategy. If you are interested in more information on the Festool CT range with HEPA filter, please contact Festool on 1800 063 900 or email to A detailed presentation about the HEPA filter as well as an independent test report is available, at no charge.

Dust extraction with HEPA: the safest and cleanest way to work!

WOW! - that's the fastest response we've ever had. I'm forwarding your email to our webmaster. I fear he'll have to cut it back. Presumably you don't mind if just the heading and first paragraph goes in with the link.

Dear Festool,

what a wonderful idea and thankyou so much for letting us know about it. Although your email below will eventually be web-published on our website (when volunteers have the time and expertise to do it), it would be better if you could go to our links page and fill in the form so our volunteer webmaster (who's always on the job except when he's sick) can immediately add a link to your site from our site. Please go to the email form and enter a brief description of your website etc and submit.

I look forward to us linking to your site.
Best wishes
Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O'Brien
