Why should I buy a dust collection system?

Whether your business is a small wood shop or a large manufacturing plant, it’s essential to ensure that the airborne particulates emitted during your production process are properly captured and controlled. Dust collection systems not only reduce the levels of indoor air pollutants but offer an array of additional benefits too. A quality dust collector can improve worker productivity, lower maintenance costs and ensure that your business is in compliance with local and national safety codes.Available in a wide range of designs, sizes and price points, AirWall industrial dust collection systems designed and built by the experts at Envirosystems Group are investments that pay multiple dividends.

What is media blast equipment?

Whether used to smooth, roughen or shape a surface or to remove surface contaminants or coatings, blast equipment is a necessary tool in many manufacturing processes and industrial applications. Media blasting equipment works by shooting a pressurized stream of material, collectively known as media, against a surface. The methods employed to propel the media vary, as do the types of media, technologies and machines used in the process. At Envirosystems Group, we offer state-of-the-art turnkey media blast equipment systems as well as custom-designed dry media blasting solutions.

What is a finishing system?

From automobile body shops to large industrial facilities, a broad range of businesses employ finishing systems in their manufacturing process or production lines. Whether cleaning, sanding or preparing parts for additional treatment or painting, polishing or sealing the final product, surface finishing is an essential process in many industries. It’s just as essential to eliminate the contaminants generated by finishing systems, both for the health of your workforce and the success of your business. At Envirosystems Group, our AirWall dust collection products ensure that the dust, by-products and contaminants produce by your finishing systems are captured and controlled.

What are some of the key terms in dust collection?

Air-to-Filter Ratio
This figure represents the volume of air entering the dust collection filter compared to the square feet of filter surface area, as expressed in cubic feet per minute to square feet.

Cartridge Collectors
Unlike cumbersome and labor-intensive ducted bag collectors, AirWall dust collection systems feature built-in metal cartridges that contain pleated filtering media, resulting in an exceptionally high filter surface area.

Cubic Feet per Minute (CFM)
This critical data represents the volume of air flow moving through the dust collection system per minute.

Conventional dust collectors rely on a network of air ducts for dust collection and filtration. Because every foot of ductwork increases static pressure resistance, it has a negative effect on system air flow. AirWall ductless systems eliminate the ductwork middleman, effectively increasing efficiency.

Face Velocity
A measurement of the speed of the air moving through filter media, face velocity is typically expressed in terms of feet per minute (FPM).

Filter Purging
AirWall dust collectors feature filter cartridges that self-clean by reverse pressurization with a quick pulse of compressed air. Dust collection systems with filter purging allow for manual as well as automatic modes.

Filter Surface Area
The filter surface area describes the dust collection system’s cleaning capacity and efficiency.

Gauge Pressure
Dust collector gauges measure differential pressure, which is the difference in atmospheric air pressure and system air pressure.

Approximately 98 percent of all airborne particles are less than one micron is size. A micron is one millionth of a meter, which is around 1/25,000 of an inch in diameter.

Static Pressure Resistance
The volume of air that a dust collector can move is affected by the amount of air already in the system.

Dust Collection System – Expense or Investment?

From manufacturing plants to automotive shops to woodwork shops, a dust collection system can do wonders for improving air quality; they can remove the smallest of airborne composites emitted into the air during the production process. While a well-engineered dust collector on paper may appear as a hefty business expense, they are actually a business investment due to the much added value overall. Aside from the obvious improvement to air quality, dust collection systems also increase productivity, prolong the life of machinery, save energy, and avoid costly fines from government agencies like the U.S. Environmental Agency (EPA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
