Wood Dust Collector


AQUEST CORPORATION provided an efficient, compact and cost-effective solution to control dust from a wood crate shop at a Connecticut manufacturing facility. The wood dust collector was designed to provide adequate suction to transport dust and chips at sufficient velocity to prevent buildup within the existing ductwork system; thereby mitigating a significant fire hazard. The dust collector was equipped with an explosion backdraft damper (yellow device pictured), deflagration relief venting (silver panel pictured), and infrared spark detection / suppression system (inside, not pictured) in compliance with NFPA 664 and OSHA’s combustible dust collection and fire prevention requirements. Aquest provided complete turnkey installation.
