METAL APPLICATION: Grinders in a High School Workshop

Welding technology programs start at the high school level.  Numerous industries rely on the welding trade, proving the investment in welding education has lifelong benefit regardless of the career path.  The best learning occurs with hands-on experience.  Clean, compliant educational workshops are instrumental in this learning, and welding fume/dust collection systems must be put in place.

Recently, a high school in rural Virginia completed the addition of a new wing. They added numerous rooms that would be used for workshop/welding technology classes.  One of the rooms called “The Grinding Room” had eight grinders for metal grinding courses.  While planning for the addition, it was clear that a dust collection system would be required.  The grinding of metal creates a fine dust that can be difficult to collect with portable units. A central dust collection system needed to be operational before the project’s completion deadline.  A school representative remembered seeing an A.C.T. Dust Collector installed at another high school.  After receiving a positive recommendation from that school’s welding instructor, the Virginia High School representative suggested to his planning committee to contact A.C.T. Dust Collectors for a quote.  Our team worked with the school to come up with the best solution for their addition. 

There was detail and thought put into the A.C.T. system including a spark arrestor.  The probability of the grinders sending sparks into the collector required a spark arrestor, which was recommended along with an ACT 2-4 Dust Collector.

A.C.T. Dust Collectors not only tailored the dust collection system to the application, but our cartridge collectors are made and manufactured in the USA, and we carry an enormous stock of standard components allowing us to meet their tight time constraints without a problem.  The system was delivered, installed and operational on time.  The school is happy with how the system is working and say they would recommend us to their friends and colleagues.

If manufacturing is the backbone of America, and in order to do it right you need an A.C.T. Dust Collector, does that mean A.C.T. is one of the vertebrae?
