How did we get here?

1980’s:  Air Cleaning Technologies was born, and found success in the commercial arena selling smoke/fume/mist filtration. 

1990’s:  Air Cleaning Technologies added to the portfolio an industrial line of equipment, becoming manufacturer’s representative for various lines of dust collection equipment.   We began to stock, service, rebuild and re-sell used dust collectors.

Equipment FIVE All Layers 2023 Orange2000’s:  Air Cleaning Technologies, now becoming known as A.C.T. Dust Collectors, concluded that we could do better for our customers.  Years of extensive market research ensued.  We studied thousands of applications, dust collectors in the field, and rebuilt every component in our shop of many other manufacturer’s equipment.  

2005:  A.C.T. Dust Collectors realized that no dust collector had every feature required to meet our expectations, and many of our customers agreed it was time to fix this.  With our knowledge and experience, we set out to build our own.

2007: Plymouth, Minnesota, USA:   A.C.T. Dust Collectors officially began production, starting with a basic line of cartridge-type dust collectors that began to capture our vision of the Highest Value Dust Collector on the market. 

Our brand pillars were established around:

  • Superior Product Quality:  metal thickness, fit and finish, consistency
  • Rapid, Safe, Efficient Maintenance:  The ACTion-Lock filter door, exterior filter rail supports, and inclined filter angle all contributed to the best design in the industry.
  • Better Collector & Lower Price:  Streamlining R&D, manufacturing, assembly, and logistics allow us to offer more dust collector for less money.

2013:  A.C.T. Dust Collectors began research and development of our TLM Series Baghouse Dust Collection System, and initiated plans for a decade of product line expansion!

2017: The A.C.T. LaserPack series was introduced as a plug-and-play solution for the laser cutting process - now featuring 4 sizes. 

2022: The A.C.T. WeldPack burst on the scene as the perfect compliment for the robotic welding processes. And the Weldhood accessory was added shortly after. 

2023: Our cartridge collectors were used as a blueprint for our newest product lines: the ADC (Ambient Dust Collectors) and the Bin Vent Dust Collectors
