Vacuum cleaner for manicure
Professional beauty salons that perform nail care procedures cannot do without such a necessary thing as a vacuum cleaner for manicure. Many women purchase it for use at home.
What is it for?
Polishing and polishing the nails on the arms and legs is complete without the formation of dust - the remnants of horn tissue, dried manicure varnishes and paints. The latter contain many harmful chemicals - solvents, pigments, carcinogens. Small particles, twisted in the air, enter the lungs, which can cause allergies, asthma, tracheitis and other respiratory diseases.
They negatively affect the skin, eyes, lead to headaches. Therefore, it is so important to clean the workplace from dust after each procedure.
In addition, the workplace itself in the nail salon should look perfectly clean and tidy. If the respiratory tract can be protected from harmful dust with a gauze bandage on the face, then only a manicure vacuum cleaner will cope with the remaining problems. Such devices facilitate the work of the master and give the nail salon greater representativeness.
Principle of operation
Regardless of the type of manicure vacuum cleaner, they all work due to an electric motor that rotates the blades at a high speed of 2500-3000 rpm, so that the air together with the dust present in it is drawn into the hood and enters the bag in the form of a bag. It is necessary to clean it from time to time, but there are also disposable plastic containers that, after filling, are simply thrown out and replaced with new ones.
The principle of operation is not much different from a conventional household vacuum cleaner, but there are certain differences. The device for a nail salon should be compact, not heavy. If it is built-in, then the dimensions should allow it to be placed on the table. The mass of these units usually does not exceed 2 kg, the noise level is not more than 48 dB, the engine power is 20-30 watts. With such characteristics, it will not interfere with either the client or the nail master, economically consumes electricity and is easily transported if the model is not built-in. Such devices are powered from a 220 V household network.
There are several types of manicure vacuum cleaners, all of them have their own characteristics and advantages.
Hoods are the most popular model of such vacuum cleaners. It has a plastic case with a powerful fan, the speed of rotation of the blades can reach 3000 rpm. High-quality models are made almost silent, the noise level in them does not exceed 62 dB, which ensures a comfortable environment in the nail salon. Dust enters the removable bag dust collector, after use it is easily removed from the exhaust pipe and replaced with a new one.
There are 2 options for such hoods: built-in or portable. The first type is tightly mounted in a manicure table, the front panel of the blade and fan are located horizontally or at a slight angle. During the procedure, hands should be held directly above the hood, for safety, the fan is closed by a protective grill. The advantages of the built-in hood models are its high power, the absence of excessive vibration, and the convenience of working on a rigidly fixed device. The disadvantages are the inability to move the device to another place and the need for mounting on a table, cutting holes in the countertop.8 photo
Portable hoods are a small panel with a vertically located fan that connects to the network through a conventional power cord. The advantages of this type over the built-in devices is that they can be moved to any place, the main thing is that there should be a socket in the vicinity. The case is made of plastic, the fan is covered with a metal protective grill, and the weight usually does not exceed 1.5 kg.
A separate option is a floor extractor for manicure, which has great power and is able to cope with any amount of dust in a short time. The massive case with an electric motor, fan and dust collector is installed on the floor, and an exhaust hose goes from it to the workplace. Despite the greatest cleaning efficiency, the floor hood consumes increased power and takes up a lot of space in the cabin.
There are very convenient desktop models of vacuum cleaners for manicure in a cylindrical body. They have 5 holes at the top for each finger. After processing the nails, the brush is placed on such a vacuum cleaner, each finger takes its place. So you can comfortably hold your hand on a stand for a long time. The appearance of such devices is very elegant and original.
What to look for when choosing?
Before buying a manicure vacuum cleaner, you need to take into account criteria such as engine power and speed, noise level during operation, weight and dimensions. Be sure to pay attention to the presence of a protective grill, it should prevent the tightening of small objects and protect your fingers during the procedure. The power of the device must be such that it is able to draw in the air-dust flow at a distance of 15-20 cm. A good vacuum cleaner can save the room not only from harmful microparticles, but also from the sharp smells of varnishes and solvents.
Built-in models should be chosen only if the final interior of the room is thought out and no redevelopment is expected. In this case, you must ensure that there is a power outlet near the device.
