Proper Filter Change


Valentino Beauty Pure originally started with our slogan "Where Beauty Meets Health"; most recently the hashtag #DustFreeLife has become even more popular. We here at the company still pride ourselves on manufacturing the highest quality and healthier products for Nail Salons, Full Service Salons, Spas, and Beauty Schools. Both of our nail dust collectors, the GEN III S and Flush Mount XL, provide exceptional health improvements with filter change playing an essential part to making sure your Valentino Beauty Pure product functions properly.

When to Change Your Filter

Filter change all depends on how busy you are as a Nail Technician. If you have a full book and are working 8 - 12 hours a day your filter should be changed every week. If you have a steady book or work just a few days a week your filter should be changed every 2 - 3 weeks. Additionally, your filter needs to be emptied of nail dust in between clients for sanitation and to ensure your machine functions properly. The below image shows how much nail dust is collected after just one client.

How To Change Your Filter

Valentino Beauty Pure has made filter change very easy on both our GEN III S and Flush Mount XL model nail dust collectors. You must first determine the filter size you will need for your machine. See the below bullet points to find the correct size filter you will need. If you have any questions about the size filter you will need please email an image of your machine and we will provide you with a direct link to the correct size filter.

  • GEN 4 / Flush Mount XL (6" x 8")
  • GEN III S (Tabletop / 5" x 6")
  • Original Models (Manufactured prior to 2015 / Square 4.5" x 4.5")

Once you have determined the correct size filter the replacement process is very easy. Simply slide our signature V-Grate off using the guides on the tray, remove the current filter from the tray, place the new filter into the tray, and slide the V-Grate back on top of the machine using the guides on the filter tray. This is the same process that is also used when emptying your filter of nail dust.

Why Am I Changing My Filter?

The reason for filter replacement simply comes down to two things that are in your life every day; nail dust and acrylic odor. Our filters use double carbon to absorb acrylic odors. Carbon acts like a sponge; once it is full it can not absorb any more water or in the case of our industry, acrylic odor. There is also an antimicrobial coating on our filters which kills germs and bacteria. Filters should never be washed as this would remove the antimicrobial coating and once the carbon has fully absorbed odor then replacement is needed. If all of these steps are followed it will ensure your Valentino Beauty Pure nail dust collector functions like new forever.
