Bosch Speed CleanTM bits work in combination with vacuum filtration to offer best-in-class concrete drilling and a clean hole
Las Vegas, Nev., February 2, 2016 – Reducing dust on the jobsite is no longer a nice-to-have, it’s a requirement. Bosch Speed CleanTM bits are built around an internal dust channel that’s milled to Bosch specifications to deliver reduced dust in a lightweight concrete bit featuring 25 percent greater speed. The dust extraction bit system saves time, saves money and produces less dust than traditional drilling methods.
Bosch Speed Clean Bits are part of a comprehensive system that reduces dust while producing precise, clean holes quickly – reducing anchor installation time by up to 50 percent. Because the bit minimizes dust in the environment, there are benefits to both workers and people located in the immediate area around the construction site. The bits work in conjunction with an attached vacuum system.
“Dust reduction is an important part of what Bosch Speed Clean Bits bring to the jobsite,” said Bill Dimitropoulos, product manager, accessories, BOSCH POWER TOOLS. “They also deliver a clean hole with 25 percent greater speed than conventional concrete bits. That means more holes that meet specifications in less time, up to 50 percent less time than the conventional drill-blow-brush-blow method. Plus the bits offer optimized dust filtration for reduced airborne silica dust and environmental impact.”
Bosch Speed Clean Bits offer great durability – comparable to the life of Bosch SpeedX™ bits and Bosch Bulldog™ bits. Solid carbide tips are embedded in a steel head with robust four-cutter geometry enhancing bit speed and life. And each bit comes with a rubber connector that connects the shaft of the drill bit to the hose.
Working with Simpson Strong-Tie, the system is pending ICC code approval for use with both Set-XP and AT-XP adhesives as an alternative installation method to standard drilling and cleaning.
Bosch Speed Clean bits offer a range of sizes to fit both SDS-plus® and SDS-max® hammers. Primary users include concrete contractors, adhesive and mechanical anchor installers, civil construction workers and mechanical, electrical and plumbing professionals.
The system also reduces silica dust, a known contributor to respiratory illnesses.
Bosch Speed Clean Bits will be available beginning January 2016.
