A dust collection system is used on production floors to improve air quality by removing dust and other particulate matter from the air and environment.
Dynavac® manufactures a wide range of dust collectors to match your site specific requirements. We have both bag house filter as well as cartridge filter dust collectors. We have the very large reverse pulse jet bag house machines which are designed to collect large volumes of dust but also manufacture portable dust collectors for individual production machines. We also make process machinery such as Downdraft Tables which integrates the dust collection system with the production activity in the same machine.
Dynavac® is a complete solution providing the following services:
- Site study and detailed engineering report for any dust collection system requirement
- Turnkey manufacture of dust collection system including ducting
- Installation and commissioning services
How does a Dust Collection System work?
Dust collectors work on the basic formula of 3 C’s – CAPTURE, CONVEY and COLLECT
- First, the dust must be captured. This is accomplished with devices such as capture hoods to catch dust at its source of origin
- Second, the dust must be conveyed. This is done via a ducting system, properly sized to maintain a consistent minimum air velocity required to keep the dust in suspension for conveyance to the collection device
- Finally, the dust is collected. This is done via a filter media and a collection tank
What are the components of a Dust Collector System?
- Hood to capture the dust at its source
- Duct system to convey the dust
- Dust Collector, which consists of
- Centrifugal blower to provide necessary suction in the hoods and maintain the transport velocity in the ducts
- Fabric separator or cartridge filter with filter cleaning mechanism if necessary to separate the dust from the air stream
- Collection tank to store the collected dust
What are the factors to consider when choosing an industrial dust collection system?
- Material to be collected (along with sample)
- Median particle size, size distribution
- Volume of material to be collected
- Nature of material
- Abrasive/Corrosive/Sticky/Explosive/Flammable etc.
- Hoods / Downdraft Tables
- Located so there is minimum hindrance to operator and provides easy access for service
HOOD PLACEMENT CONSIDERATION
- For optimal use of an industrial dust collector system, the hood should be as close to the source of dust as possible in order to capture dust particles in suspension before they settle. This will help us avoid poor suction and heavy – expensive equipment.
- Determine layout of factory floor and identify machines and points on those machines which require dust collection
- Determine location of dust collector – Indoors vs Outdoors
- Airflow through ducting should be optimal to ensure dust remains airborne
- Lesser airflow may lead to clogging in ducts and increased resistance in the system, resulting in drop in performance
- Higher air flow can may lead to wearing down of ducts and increased power costs
