Centrifugal/Pleated-Element Wood Dust Collector


AQUEST CORPORATION provided a Connecticut woodworking facility a combination centrifugal/ pleated-element dust collector system. The system is designed to provide eight (8) ‘turns’ of cyclonic separation to remove 98% of the incoming dust before it reaches the self-cleaning pleated filters. Aquest provided a turn-key system design, including the following ancillary components: spark detection and suppression system, explosion isolation backdraft damper, properly sized interconnecting ductwork to maintain 4,000 ft/min minimum transport velocity, and high-speed abort gate for return air, which provided a tremendous energy savings. The system was provided with a 20 year filter life guarantee!
