Is a Dust Collection System the Best Way to Control Dust?

Air pollution and dust collection are major health concerns in many workplaces, as these can cause allergies and other respiratory illnesses. The use of a dust collection system is one way to help combat this issue. A dust collection system works with any size commercial facility to fit the company’s needed level of dust control, size of the facility or dust collection area, budget, and energy savings.

How Does a Dust Collection System Work?

A dust collection system is designed to improve the air quality in a workshop or industrial setting by removing dust and other particulates from the air. DustHog’s engineers at Parker Hannifin developed the cutting edge filtration technology used in the design and application of dust collection systems. Our company at Matrix Systems helps businesses with consultation, installation, and maintenance of DustHog dust collectors.

There are several components that work together to make a DustHog system and these include:

  1. An air handling unit: This is the main component of the dust collection system and is responsible for drawing in the air from the workspace and passing it through the filter.
  1. A filter: The air passing through the dust collection system is passed through a filter, which captures the dust and other particulates. The filter is typically made of a fine mesh material that is designed to trap the particles. With DustHog dust collector systems, we use the nanofiber cartridge filteres that have a proven efficiency rating of 99.999% in industrial facilities.
  1. A dust collection system: The dust and particulates that are collected by the filter are then deposited into a dust collection system, whether portable to stand at each workstation or standalone and self-contained. We have a range of equipment depending on your industrial environment’s needs.

Some of these include:

We also work with other DustHog dust collection systems and offer consultation for your business to determine the right system for your business.

What is the Purpose of a Dust Collector?

Dust Collectors help improve the quality of air in industrial and commercial areas. They collect dust, making them efficient and removing contaminants from the air. It is used in many different industries, including cement production, pharmaceuticals, food processing, and woodworking.

How Big of a Dust Collection System Do I Need?

The size of the dust collection system you need depends on different factors. These factors can include:

Here are some factors to consider when determining the size of the dust collection system you need:

Volume of dust generated: The amount of dust generated by your processes will determine the size of the dust collection system you need. A larger facility with more dust-generating processes will require a larger dust collection system.

Type of dust: Different types of dust have different characteristics, such as particle size and density. These characteristics will affect the size of the dust collection system you need. For example, fine dust requires a more powerful system than coarse dust.

Airflow rate: The airflow rate, or the volume of air being moved through the system, will also influence the size of the dust collection system you need. A higher airflow rate will require a larger system.

Collection efficiency: The collection efficiency of the dust collection system refers to its ability to capture dust and other impurities. A system with a higher collection efficiency will require a smaller size.

To determine the size of the dust collection system you need, it is best to consult with a professional or refer to industry standards and guidelines.

Why Would a Dust Collector Be the Best Method of Dust Control?

There are several reasons why a dust collector may be the best method of dust control for a particular facility:

Effectiveness: Dust collectors are effective at capturing a wide range of particle sizes and can be used in many different industries.

Customizability: Dust collectors can be customized to meet the specific needs of a facility. For example, the size of the system, the type of filter, and the dust removal method can be tailored to fit the facility’s specific needs and constraints.

Cost-effectiveness: Dust collectors are generally a cost-effective option for controlling dust, especially when compared to wet scrubbers and electrostatic precipitators.

Ease of maintenance: Dust collectors require regular maintenance to ensure they are operating efficiently, but they are generally easy to maintain and have a long lifespan.

Overall, a dust collector can be an effective and cost-effective method of dust control for many different types of facilities. However, it is important to carefully evaluate the specific needs and constraints of a facility to determine the best method of dust control.

What is the Quietest Dust Collection System?

It is worth noting that the actual noise level of a dust collection system can be affected by a variety of factors, including the size of the system, the type of filter, and the specific installation and operating conditions. To determine the quietest SmogHog dust collection system for your specific needs, it is best to consult with a professional or refer to the manufacturer’s specifications.
