CE Marked floor sanding dust containment system. Retrofit compatible with popular sander models. Available by phone order only.
The Oneida Vortex® DCS - Dust Containment System's patented technology and broad innovative concept is unlike anything else on the market! The equipment is compact, portable, lightweight, and has a price point significantly lower than any other comparative system.
Continuous sanding, no loss of airflow, and no bags to clean are just a few of the benefits you, your employees, and most of all your customers can enjoy!
As the sander fills the bag with wood waste, air flow drops off considerably as the bag becomes clogged with dust. Fine particles are then forced through the woven fabric of the bag, creating large clouds of messy, harmful dust. When the operator stops to shake the bag clean they scatter dust everywhere, exacerbating the problem.
A minimum of 200 CFM is needed for a system to overcome air resistance in the flex hose. To accomplish this you need higher horsepower, large diameter hoses, and shorter hose runs. This leads to a loss of mobility, louder noise, more weight, ineffective dust pick up at the source, and necessitates having to locate the vacuum in the work area.
The patented Vortex® Cyclone attaches directly to your floor sander and separates the 200 CFM right at the source, resulting in:
Splitting the air-stream at the source ensures that the sander always has a continuous flow of air, significantly improving sanding performance and reducing downtime for cleanup.

Not at all! The cyclone is smaller and weighs far less than a typical dust bag; additionally it can be swiveled and locked into any position to suit your needs. Contractors report that they can get into tight places they couldn't normally access with a dust bag system.
No! The retrofit cyclone & handle mount directly onto your floor sander; they can be easily removed if need be but most contractors leave them on for convenience. The Dust Cobra® and it's 35 Gal. drum are lightweight and are mounted on stable locking caster wheels for mobility while the flex hose can be neatly coiled inside the drum (see pictures above).
We currently manufacture handles and mounts to retrofit industry leading floor sanders with the Oneida Vortex® DCS including: Super Bee, Bona Pro Sand 8, Kunzle & Tasin Taurus, Hummel 8", Clarke EZ-8, and Bona Universal 8" or 10".

The ultra-high air suction performance of the Industrial Dust Cobra® will handle dust generated by refining tools such as edgers or buffers without the Vortex® Cyclone. It is only when used with Floor Sanders that you will require the Vortex®.
Cleaning the HEPA filters only takes a few minutes and should be done at the end of the job or after they become significantly clogged. They can be cleaned by blowing compressed air (at 30-60 PSI) up and down through the exterior of the filter (opposite of the normal direction of airflow). You can also wash the filters by gently cleaning them with warm water. PLEASE NOTE: If you choose to wash your filter you must make sure that it is completely dry before being used otherwise the moisture and dust will mix and immediately cake up the filter.
It's difficult to predict the lifespan of a HEPA Filter as it is entirely dependent on how much it's used and what it's used for. If cleaning the filter fails to improve it's performance you can purchase replacement HEPA Media Cartridge Filters from Oneida Air at a low price. You should also note that the Dust Cobra® uses a GORE CleanStream® Pro HEPA Filter and as such you can purchase a replacement unit almost anywhere vacuums and filters are sold.
The Oneida Vortex® DCS is a brand new package of dust containment equipment but the technology has been around for some time now. We maintain a list of floor sanding contractors who use the Dust Cobra® and/or older models of the Vortex® Sander Cyclone who you may be able to speak with. Please note that some items on the listing may be out of date — call us directly at 1-800-732-4065 for more current recommendations.
If you're located in the Upstate, NY area you can visit our showroom at Koster's Wood Floor Store to see a live demonstration of the system. There is also an excellent video clip from an older This Old House episode (#2615) available online here.
