This synthetic vacuum cleaner test dust specified in the standard DIN IEC 60312 is used, among other things, to determine suction performance loss when the vacuum cleaner bag is filled. In terms of its characteristics this dust simulates real house dust with respect to separation in the vacuum cleaner bag. The specifications along with quality control of the raw materials used and the test dust produced from that guarantee a high level of quality. This means the physical characteristics, such as dust cake structure and the propensity for clogging of vacuum cleaner parts, are reproducible from test to test. In contrast to contaminated house dust, DMT’s test dust is free of pollen, fungi, bacteria and any toxic substances.
