Metal Working Dust Collection - Case Studies
Flammable Metal Working - Wet Collection Units
New regulations for the flammable metals processing industry often require the use of high efficiency wet collection units to ensure a safe work environment. This aerospace manufacturer required that their deburring operations be brought back in-house for higher quality control. Two booths were required for this operation with the need to return the air to the facility to save on air conditioning costs. Each booth was ducted to its own wet collector so that individual booth operation could be utilized as required. Employees now have a clean, safe work environment while satisfying all local codes and allowing for a greater on-site productivity.

Metal Working - BDC Pleated Bag Dust Collector
Family shop producing metal stamps presented a special challenge as they required all of their processes to be serviced by a single dust collection system. The problem is that they had both dry and wet (coolant) operations which can normally not be accommodated. By using the Pleated Bag collector with special moisture treated bags, they have enjoyed over 2,000 hours of filter life with no down time. The system is connected to surface grinders, belt sanders, a dry machining center and various other small sanding and grinding operations.

Metal Working - Cyclone and Cartridge Collector
Manufacturer of custom milled metal sheeting required a system to contain and collect dust from automatic metal sanding operation. A cyclone collector was utilized to act both as a pre-separator as well as a spark trap. The 36 cartridge collector then provided high efficiency cleaning of the pre-cleaned air stream.
