Special Application Dust Collectors: the StoneVac Series

Vaniman StoneVac Family of Special Application Dust Collectors

We love to talk about our StoneVac series of special application dust collectors here at Vaniman. They are powerful. They are versatile.

This is our workhorse series — they are built for high volume and long life.

The name “StoneVac” comes from die stone dust extraction, its original intent from the outset. But these machines are all well suited to handle virtually any dry dust material, and have evolved along the way into some very interesting niches.

So — what’s the difference from one to the next? And which model is best for YOUR application?

Excellent questions! Let’s get into it…
