Industrial Collector Systems FAQs

It is a dust collector designed to withstand years of wear and tear while effectively filtering industrially produced dust and debris. Industrial dust collectors are constructed with longevity and efficient performance in mind.

There are three basic ways to collect dust:

  1. Cyclone
  2. Baghouse collector, which uses filter bags to clean the air.
  3. Cartridge collector, which uses pleated cartridge filters to filter the air. This is mainly used for fine dust, smoke, and fumes.

These baghouses are found in industries such as grain, seed, rubber, silica, feed, wood, and aggregate.

A fume extractor is not meant for dust; its filters are designed to capture fine smoke particulates and would clog up with dust such as sawdust. They are often not set up to move the amount of air that a dust collector would because it takes a lot less to handle smoke and fumes as opposed to dust. On the other hand, a dust collector is designed to handle bulk quantities of dust effectively. Its filters also would not be able to trap fine smoke and fume particulates.

Determine the size of the collector the customer needs, and we figure out the ductwork layout. Based on that, we calculate our price.

It really varies depending on the size and complexity of the project. It could be 3 days, weeks, or months.

Essentially, a dust extractor is an oversized shop vac. Overall, dimensionally, they are pretty much the same, but a dust extractor has higher CFMs and material handling capabilities.

One of the first things we like to do is schedule a site visit with the potential customer to meet them at the location where the new collector will be installed. We gather information about the building and machine layout and discuss all the options with the customer to ensure we are on the same page. We then provide a system quote that will work for the customer’s facility (which may include multiple options). Additionally, we create a system drawing to ensure mutual understanding with the potential customer. At that point, we review it with the customer and make any necessary changes to the layout and quote that may arise.
