The Complete System
2. Filter Units
Filters are cleaned with reverse pulse which results in very effective cleaning, long filter life and low maintenance. Normally the filter units are equipped with a plastic sack for collection of the extracted material but other types of discharge arrangements can also be installed.
3. Vacuum Producers
Vacuum level increases as more resistance is presented, an important quality in minimizing the possibility of blockages in the tubing system. For applications involving fume and light dust, such as paper, radial blowers are used. These have larger air-flows and operate at a lower, relatively constant vacuum level.
Our turbopumps and radial blowers have very high quality built-in silencing, see technical specifications.
4. Control Systems
A variety of other control functions can be installed as required. Even with a rather basic control system, intelligent features can be included to clear coarse material in the main tubing runs or control vacuum production and therefore energy consumption according to actual requirements.
5. Tubing System
Dust is generally abrasive, some more than others, The Complete System therefore the standard material thickness of the tubing system is 1.5 mm. Applications with fume and light dust use reinforced spiral duct.
Stainless tubing systems and extra abrasion resistant fittings are available. Dustcontrol has a very comprehensive assortment of tubing fittings and installation hardware. This gives greater flexibility in design and installation of our tubing systems.
Our mechanical jointing system makes alterations and additions very easy to carry out. Cones, branch pipes and bends are manufactured in EPDM- and NBR- rubber. The components are hard-wearing and sound deadening.
6. Work Place Equipment
The Flexpipe can be used for fume extraction, high flexibility and small diameter allow it to be placed very close to the fume source. Overhead suspension arrangements such as swing-arms and hose reels can increase the usefulness of the system, increase ergonomics and minimize potential trip hazards from hose left on the floor.
When large volumes of material are to be introduced into the system, stainless floor funnels can be used from which the material is then extracted.
Dustcontrol has a comprehensive assortment of hose types, diameters and hose connections. Cleaning tools, suction casings and special nozzles are those components that are actually used to capture the dust. The design and effectiveness of these will determine the efficiency and acceptance of the entire system. This demands a varied and complete assortment of specially designed products. Dustcontrol has that. If a standard product does not exist, we have the capacity to design and manufacture it.
Pre-separators separate material from the air flow using cyclonic action or with inertial separation. Inertial separators are generally configured as containers with the inlet and outlet in the same wall of the container. When the air-flow changes direction abruptly, separation occurs for the particles with higher relative mass. When pre-separation is used to accommodate higher material volumes it is also important to consider the type of material discharge to be used.
Dustcontrol offers a range of different standard options including; screw compaction, airlocks or container collection.
