The Tornado ACS 28 is designed for Canada and the US market with 120~V. The number 28 describes the maximum power of 2,800 W. In order to be able to use this power, the socket used must be fused with 20 A. If the fuse rating is lower, only 2 motors can be used. If a genset is used, it should be designed for a single-phase output power of 3,000 W.
The special cleaning equipment Tornado ACS 28 is based on a world wide patented vacuum blasting system, that is a ridable cleaning machine, not bigger can a conventional vacuum cleaner.
The special cleaning equipment contains a low pressure generator with appropriate filtre cartridges, dust deposition and as well belonging containers of blasting material. Further accesoiries of the special cleaning equipment Tornado ACS are the jet cap and the jet lance.
The face capacity of the special cleaning equipment highly depend on the material and consistance of the to-be-cleaned surface. Because of that you could approx. say that the face capacity is about 1,5 - 5,0 qm/h. With easier application areas the capacity can lie higher as well.

Face capacity of special cleaning equipment Tornado ACS 28
The face capacity of special cleaning equipment Tornado ACS 28 is strongly dependant on the material to be removed and the hardness of the base coat. Therefore the face capacity amounts to 1,5 – 5,0 qm/h depending on the application. On very light applications, the face capacity is even above.
Functioning of special cleaning equipment Tornado ACS 28
The special cleaning equipment Tornado ACS 28 is easy to set up. All components are simply plugged together. After turning on the vacuum generator the abrasive is sucked from the container into the cleaning device. Subsequently the middle flap must be opened and closed again, to allow the special cleaning equipment Tornado ACS 28 to be ready for use.
The jet cap is places on the work surface and adheres to it by the vacuum. In the jet cap a vacuum of about 150 mbar is generated. With the introductionof the jet lance into the jet cap the cycle is closed. The blasting material is sucked through the jet lance and is accelerated to about 400 km/h. With this speed the blasting media impinges on the surface to be worked on, which will be according to the needs cleaned, stripped or roughened.
This process can be optimally controlled by the user via three vision panels. After impinging, the granules and the removed debris are sucked in immediately. Inside the special cleaning equipment a fine dust filter is seperating the debris from the granules. The blasting media then gets back to the storage container for further processing. Due to the closed cycle, the cleaning device has a minimum granule consumption.
The special cleaning equipment Tornado ACS 28 works with a low noise level (75 db) not louder than a common industrial vacuum cleaner. The unique minimally abrasive vacuum blast method is protected by patent.

Advantages of special cleaning equipment Tornado ACS 28
The cleaning machine Tornado ACS 28 has many advantages compared to the conventional sandblasting or a high pressure cleaner. The most important
- simple handling (no specialized staff necessary)
- fast setup and dismounting (max. 5 minutes)
- transport possible in any vehicle
- only 120V~/20 A power connection necessary
- low noise level, da it works without compressor
- protective clothing is not necessary
- no use of water and chemicals (very eco-friendly)
- environmentally friendly due to the closed cycle
- working in public business (barriers not necessary)
- blasting media can be reused up to 80 times (low cost for consumables)
- no hazardous waste in the disposal
- in winter with frost useable
