50 years of experience in the industry

Dustcontrol AB was founded in 1972 by Johann Haberl, Mirko Purar, and Evert Kranz. All three had previously worked as engineers at Devac AB. Devac was a Swedish government owned research and development company. The main purpose of the company was to research the health hazards of dust generated when drilling into stone. At the time, stone dust and “stone dust lung” was a major issue. After testing various methods such as binding the dust with water and air filtration, their finding was that the most effective method was source extraction. When Devac was wound up, the three colleagues decided to continue with the source extraction project themselves. A new private company was formed – Dustcontrol AB with Pirkko Haberl as CFO.

However, the market for stone dust was limited. The company therefore began to develop stationary and mobile dust extractors for other industries.

Today, the Dustcontrol group consists of the Head Office in Sweden and local sales companies in Germany, Austria, United Kingdom, USA, Finland, and worldwide partners.

Purifies the exhaust air to 99,995 percent

Thanks to equipment from Dustcontrol, small and large companies can extract dust, chips, gases, oil spills or other unhealthy particles directly at the source. Our equipment meets the challenges with the help of a high degree of filtration. The machines can have filters that purify the exhaust air to 99.995 percent. It gives your business a much cleaner indoor air. In addition, the filters have a long life and a long time between changes, which also makes it a wise choice financially.
