Choosing the right industrial dust collection system for your manufacturing environment is an important long-term decision.
When it comes to dust collection, it can be hard to predict how user-friendly a system will be. As industrial dust collector manufacturers, our dust collector designs incorporate unique features to help our customers maintain and service the equipment as fast and as economically as possible. From metalworking applications to chemical processing, pharmaceutical and more, learn...
Having a dust-free facility is important, and dust collectors help to ensure just that. A dust collector removes pollutants from the air, providing your facility with cleaner air, which can provide numerous benefits.
Two of the most common types of industrial air cleaning systems are baghouse and cartridge dust collectors.
In certain industries — chemical processing, pharmaceutical, food and agriculture, metal and woodworking — the air you and your employees breathe in on a daily basis can be compromised. Dirt, dust, debris, gases and chemicals can be floating around in the air, causing issues for your employees, as well as your equipment. A dust collector helps combat this.
When solving a dust problem, industrial dust collector parts are somewhat of an afterthought. Truth is, they’re an important factor in determining the true cost of running a dust collector.
Thousands of industrial environments create airborne particles, ranging from sub-micron size smoke to large chunks of plastic, paper or wood. While some dust is hazardous and presents a safety issue, other dust reduces visibility and needs to be removed. Operations creating fumes and smoke use industrial dust collection systems to clear the air.
The grinding of metals and non-ferrous metals produces a fine dust that needs to be removed from the air. When metal particles from grinding and other metalworking applications become airborne, metal dust becomes a hazard.
Nearly every metalworking operation requires some form of dust collection. When metal particles from welding, laser, grinding and other metalworking operations become airborne, metal dust becomes a hazard.
Weld smoke and fumes are a leading source of air contamination and must be captured. But as challenging as it is to capture smoke and fumes from welding applications, it can be just as difficult to find a weld smoke and fume collector to fit your manufacturing environment.
Sand, steel shot or grit, glass bead or crushed glass, aluminum oxide and coal slag. These are just a few of the most common blasting abrasives used. Abrasive grit blasting, also known as sandblasting, is the process of propelling a grit of sand-sized particles with compressed air against a surface to remove excess or unwanted materials. The grit blasting process typically...
Many industries utilize laser cutting in their processes. While cutting metal is the most common, laser cutting technology is now applied to a wide range of materials.
Welding processes create fume and smoke, resulting in poor air quality. Weld smoke is a leading source of air contamination in a metal fabrication facility. Some welding applications such as galvanized metal or stainless are very harmful and must be captured. Capturing smoke and fumes from welding or cutting applications, however, can be a challenge.
In the world of dust collection, a large piece of the puzzle is the dust collector filters. What are they made of; how much filter media is contained in each cartridge; how efficient will they be? When comparing dust collector filters, you will come across Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) and see different MERV ratings. But what is MERV rating and why is it important?...
Also referred to as air-to-media ratio, air-to-cloth ratio quantifies the amount of air going through one square foot of filter media. It is often used as a simple way to state the ratio between cubic feet per minute (CFM) and square feet of filter area.
Welders need to be protected from Hexavalent Chromium, also called Hex Chrome or Chrome 6. Hexavalent Chromium is the most toxic form of chromium. The potential to be overexposed during welding especially if its production welding, or full shift welding on stainless steel should be a concern.
Using the right filter matters, and the first step in determining which type of dust collector filter you should be using comes down to one main question: What application am I using it for?
Removing dust/fume/smoke in the air requires a wide range of equipment for the various dusts from industrial environments.
Ask for Advice: When a situation comes up and a dust collection system needs to be installed as soon as possible there are many things to consider. Costs, types, and lead times become significant to getting the best results in an urgent situation. Due to the pressing nature of the need, it is important to seek advice from a team with experience. Likely they will ask the...
The filters are key to the performance of a dust collection system. It is important to know the different methods used to clean filters and when the filters should be replaced.
Finding the right dust collection system for your air quality need can be difficult. While finding the correct size is important, the ongoing maintenance cost must also be considered closely. It can be hard to calculate the real cost of a dust collector.
Ambient air is defined as the atmospheric air in its natural state.
They both collect dust, so how do you determine which one is the better way to go?
Sometimes the need for a dust collector in a facility is more obvious than others. Dust collection systems are very important to the health and safety of your employees
The cleaning system on a pulse-type dust collector relies on compressed air. Compressed air often contains small amounts of moisture. When cold weather settles in, the combination of cold metal and moisture creates a problem for your pulse clean solenoids.
