Pre-Engineered Lead and Dust Collector Packages

 

Gold Series

We have dust collectors in a range of sizes and configurations for low risk dust applications to highly hazardous dusts such as asbestos, silica, lead etc. In many circumstances the collector may be placed indoors or the air may be fully or partially re-circulated back into the lab if a HEPA exhaust filter system is used. 

To help with the process of selecting a suitable dust or lead collector we have simplified the available smaller collectors into pre-engineered packages.

Fire assay extraction systems need a different air:cloth and so the collector bodies are bigger than for the equivalent air flow in standard dust collectors.

Please also note – while some suppliers may pull more air through these collectors than listed in the table below – and suggest you could save money that way – you will be replacing the filters more frequently and you will also run the risk of rupturing filters. For collectors in metropolitan areas that may not be as much of a problem compared to remote locations where the cost of continuous filter shipping can be significant. A well-engineered system should be able to run for between 3 and 5 years between filter changes.

A list of the more common sizes are shown below.

If also using the dust collector for pulverised waste extraction please advise us so we can factor this into the sizing calculations.   

Larger systems should ideally be properly engineered – please contact us for assistance.

Smaller Applications with Hazardous Dusts

 

 

For smaller applications (excluding fire assay) with hazardous dusts we also have the option of EVOTECH dust collectors. These smaller high-efficiency collectors can be configured to be placed next to a bench where hazardous samples are being handled with dust being generated. The main filters are air-jet pulse cleaned and the air exhaust is filtered via a HEPA filter system before being released back into the room. 

The benefits of such an arrangement are that there is no conditioned air extracted from the room/building and potentially – due to the reduced collector size – the collector may be placed adjacent to the extraction point and so extensive duct runs with building penetrations may not be required.
