The Preparation Group's 250SP grinds and polishes up to edges

THE Preparation Group, a leading expert in environmentally friendly solutions for surface preparation, polishing, cleaning and dust containment, has launched the new 110v 250SP Single-Head Grinder.

Of steel construction with a powerful motor, yet light and compact, it offers optimum grinding and polishing performance combined with simplicity and ergonomic design.

Developed specifically for the hire market for small commercial and domestic projects, the 250SP has a wide range of interchangeable diamond accessories for cleaning and keying all types of surfaces, removing concrete laitance, smoothing and levelling, de-scaling and removing glue, bitumous adhesives and paint.

The guard has a removeable section to enable the disc to prepare and polish right up to vertical edges that are usually inaccessible.

A unique feature is that the 250SP is also ideal for economical wet polishing of hard, previously ground surfaces such as concrete, with a water pipe port to feed water onto the surface and a range of resin polishing pads.

An adjustment lever lifts and lowers the wheel height and along with the built-in spirit level, allows the operator a level, even connection with the surface.

The adjustable handle enables a comfortable operating position and folds down for compact transportation and storage.

Says Kate Walshaw, Group Hire Manager, said: "The 250SP Grinder was very well received at the EHS with visitors remarking on its ease of use and portability.

"It’s versatility, low operating costs and low maintenance yields impressive ROI and hire potential."

M450 Vacuum contains it all - dust and liquids

THERE are a range of dust extractors and vacuums on the market, but what about when dealing with dust and liquid spills, or slurry?
 
The Preparation Group, a leading expert in preparing, polishing and cleaning surfaces, has the M450 model in its fleet, a dual-purpose, heavy-duty dry/wet vac.

With the M450 there is no need for two separate vacuums as it is specifically designed to eradicate dust, with high levels of dust particle containment, yet is equally effective at dealing with liquids.

It can be switched between the two operations with no compromise to the performance and without the need to change the filter.

Kate Walshaw, Hire Group Manager, said: "Our range of Industrial vacuums for hire includes small single motor models of 1.1.kw up to the three-motor M450 at 5.5kw and all are highly efficient.

"We also have longopac models for dealing with hazardous substances or dust sensitive projects.

"Our range is built to last with minimal operating costs, to maximise hire rental opportunities."

Other benefits of the M450

It is powered by three motors which can all be independently used to control suction levels, adding power for tough tasks or conserving energy for lighter duties.

Built from high-grade steel, it is virtually maintenance-free and has a large capacity 60-litre bin for less emptying.

The supplied ‘M’ Filter is removed with one quick and easy action, you simply untie from the frame and replace.

‘H’ filters are also available from stock for collecting very fine, asbestos containing particle dust.

PCDs are the answer for floor adhesive removal

THE Preparation Group has developed a solution for removing old, problematic floor adhesives and other sticky substances in the form of PCDs, polycrystalline diamonds that attach to a hand grinder or walk-behind grinding machine.

The Group is a leading expert in preparing, polishing and cleaning surfaces. So, to move away from traditional grinding methods, which have a tendency to generate surface heat the company's PCDs are designed to scrape rather than grind to efficiently ‘lift’ the material.

They generate less heat so all cutting edges remain clear. This also halts the rendering of the surface residue, which makes it softer and stickier.

Kate Walshaw, Hire Group Manager, said: "An example of PCDs in use is when a customer was presented with 50m2 of thick combed white adhesive that needed to be removed to install a DPM and levelling compound.

"He needed a process that would smooth and clean the surface. We recommended a triple tooth PCD plate attached to his STG450 machine and the material was quickly and effectively removed."

PCDs are available to remove thin or thick adhesives and in disc, shoe or plate format to fit a five-inch or nine-inch hand grinder, the STG450 machine, 180 and 250 grinders and all machines with plates that hold standard grinding shoes.

They are also interchangeable with regular grinding shoes so in this way, a floor can be cleared of adhesives using the PCD’s, and then the cup discs fixed to the plate ready for grinding. To save time, the PCDs can be left attached in the background.

The Preparation Group’s PCD accessories have many additional uses over and above adhesive removal, including the removal of other soft thick materials from latex, screeds and certain asphalts.

Kate added: "For Hire customers, the PCD plate adds yet another dimension to the already versatile STG450 multi-tasking machine."
