Dust control is incredibly important, and in many case mandatory, in manufacturing and production facilities for a multitude of reasons; 1. Compliance with EPA and OSHA regulations 2. Protect the health of your employees 3. Production tolerances and specifications 4. Cleanliness and sterilization control 5. Dust-free electronics rooms 6. Pharmaceutical laboratories 7. Clean rooms. Here at Industrial Fans Direct, we offer a wide array of dust collection extractors, systems and high pressure blowers.
Hazards of Excessive Dust
Excessive dust can be created by a variety of manufacturing and industrial processes, including in the wood, metal, ceramic and composite industries. Excessive dust from cutting, sawing, sanding and processing can wreak havoc on your equipment and your employees’ health. Dust can get sucked into equipment through the air intakes, clogging filters and causing overheating situations. For employees, excessive dust can lead to an increase in indoor allergy symptoms and eye, nose, throat and skin irritation, and high levels of dust can even render your business non-compliant with EPA and OSHA regulations.
Types of Dust Control Equipment
Dust control equipment typically comes in two types, blowers and collectors. Collectors remove dust by sucking it into a canister, or exhausting to another containment source, much like a vacuum. High pressure blowers remove dust by sucking it away from the workstation at a high rate of speed and blowing it through a duct or piping system so that it can be properly disposed or vented to the outdoors, depending on the specific rules and regulations in your state and local community.
Dust Collectors and Exhausters
We offer efficient dust & fume collectors for manufacturing, production and industrial dust removal so that you can remain compliant with all the local, state and federal regulations regarding your production or manufacturing facility. Our dust collectors and exhausters can effectively remove dust and particles, like metal shards and wood splinters at the source before they have a chance to become airborne, fall onto the floor or get sucked into your equipment’s air intake ports.
Our fume and dust extractors are designed to efficiently and effectively remove all exhaust fumes and chemicals fumes, as well as dust particulates from a variety of manufacturing processes. Common manufacturing processes include welding shops, soldering rooms, grinding areas, wood shops, machine shops, painting facilities, anodizing, coatings and brazing operations. Our dust collectors and fume exhausters can be purchased with CFMs of less than 500 to 2,500.
Explosion Proof High Pressure Blowers
Our explosion proof high pressure blowers provide an added level of safety when removing fumes or exhaust gases from manufacturing and industrial applications so that you can keep your indoor air clean and healthy. Each blower is constructed with non-sparking aluminum housing and wheels, and the motor is rated as explosion proof. Our explosion proof blowers can be purchased with the ability to move up to 2,500 cubic feet of air per minute.
High Pressure Blowers
When you need a durable, high pressure blower to vent exhaust gases or to attach to a drum-barrel dust extractor, you can count on our high pressure blowers to remove exhaust gases, chemical fumes and/or dust and particulate matter before it has a chance to impact your equipment and indoor air quality. These blowers can be purchased with CFMs up to 2,500, and each blower is manufactured with non-sparking aluminum for added safety.
