MK Diamond uses new Cyclone technology

The new MK Diamond IXL Vacuum Shroud, for 7-inch concrete and surface grinding, has been designed to incorporate a new technology called “Cyclone Dust Extraction.” CDE uses velocity combined with negative pressure to directionally flow materials away from the grinding wheel.

CDE technology controls dust during grinding with the IXL Shroud’s unique snail-shape design. It uses the velocity of air created by the rotating grinding wheel to force the air, in cyclone fashion, to create a higher centrifugal force that expels the dust particles away from the grinding cup wheel into the vacuum hookup port. This technology improves removal of particles, which further enhances the grinding process.

The highly efficient CDE system has been developed for heavy-duty use by contractors for grinding concrete, masonry and mortar. The injection-molded shroud is made from an abrasiveresistant plastic to prevent wear from the grinding process. The IXL Shroud can be used with any traditional shop vacuum or with an approved bag if a vacuum is not available, saving time during cleanup.

The IXL Shroud is designed to fit the Dewalt, Milwaukee, Metabo, Hitachi, Bosch and Makita 7-inch, 15- amp grinders.
