The industrial dust collector system is a machine designed to control pollution and debris in the air in workspaces such as factories, garages, plants, warehouses, and other settings of the commercial and industrial domain. It works by drawing in noxious waste and contaminants through an intake, from where it passes through a filter. The filter’s purpose is to block as much of the dust, debris, and particles as possible, passing out only purified, clean air, which is ultimately discharged out through an outlet back into the room or workspace.
How to Select the Ideal Industrial Dust Collector System?
Each dust collector system has some generalized parameters that determine its quality and efficiency. Above and beyond, these parameters should be optimized for maximum output from the machine within an ideal dust collector system. Let’s have a look at some of these parameters:
One parameter in consideration is the number of cubic feet per meter of airflow or CFM of airflow. A good dust collector should have at least 1000 CFM airflow for dust collection in ample space, while 650 CFM is the bare minimum for a region as small as a shop. For air velocity in terms of FPM, engineers recommend no less than an air velocity of 4,000 FPM in branch lines.
Moreover, parameters such as system power, the power of the system motor, storage capacity for dust and particles, minimum particle size that gets filtered by the unit, noise generated and the temperature, moisture content, and possibility of combustion of the dust being collected are notable for being considered to understand the efficiency of the dust collector system.
