Laser/Plasma: Our customer came to us complaining of short filter life...

The Problem:

Our customer came to us complaining of short filter life in their dust collector which was collecting off their laser cutting table.  As the filters plugged up, the smoke began to escape from the table.  They always knew when their filters were plugged because of the odors and dust build up in the room.  The smoke and dust that was no longer being sucked into the dust collector, was ending up in the air and in the lungs of their employees. 

They have a 5’ x 10’ Mazak laser table.  The dust collector they were using had 8 vertical filters and about 3,000 CFM.  At best they were getting around 400 hours of filter life before their filters were plugged.  It was at the point where they did not even need to look at their pressure gage.  They could tell their filters were plugged based on the dust settling on their parts and the smell in the air.  The fact that they were running almost 24-7 meant they were changing filters every two or three weeks. 

ACT 3-12 on Laser System

This was an expensive situation. 

Although we knew a new dust collector was the answer, we tried various filters which promised big results.  Needless to say, nothing greatly improved the situation.  The answer was a new dust collector with a better filter cleaning system and a better air-to-cloth ratio. 

The ACT Solution:

We sold the customer an ACT 3-12 with 7.5 HP motor/blower rated for 3,000 CFM @ 10”
A combination of our excellent filter cleaning system and the improved air-to-cloth ratio gave them the results they had originally hoped for.  The filters are now lasting much longer and they are no longer noticing the dust around the shop or the odor associated with the laser cutting. 
They are extremely pleased with their new ACT 3-12 dust collection system.
