Damp cutting disc keeps dust at bay

DUST levels when cutting concrete can be reduced by damping the cutting disc as it works.

The Lempro Watermate 30 supplies a continuous stream of water to the top of the cutting disk, which, the firm claims, significantly reduces dust levels.

Comprising a 30-litre poly- ethylene tank and a 12v pump, the Watermate automatically switches on and off as the operator opens the flow valve on the disc cutter. Bigger tank sizes are also available.

Price of the 30-litre Watermate, complete with 10m of hose and nozzle kit, is £355 (01953-605151).
