Swing Grinder

LEV-CO TIP: Small local exhaust hoods mounted behind the grinder wheel may trap the stream of sparks, but are usually not effective in control of airborne dust.

Dust & Fume Filters - Centrally Ducted
Centrally Ducted Dust Collectors such as these are ideal for large shops and centrally ducted applications. Most of these solutions are based upon self-cleaning filter cleaning systems to help reduce filter costs. In addition, Water based filtration systems are available for certain explosive and flammable applications

Some important points to consider when purchasing (please do your best to answer as many of these as you can):
  • What is the exact process?
  • How is the emission released into the workplace?
  • Does the contaminant have velocity when released from the process?
  • Have you thought of any specific methods of capturing the contaminant ?
  • Have you used that method of capture before? If so, did you like it or would you prefer something different.
  • Are you looking at a centrally ducted system or per workstation?
  • What is the Total Flow Rate? (Add up all the inlets that will run at once)
  • What is the exact resistance (filter and duct losses) required for the fan to overcome?
  • Do I have enough filter media (Air to cloth ratio) in the collector?
  • Will it stand up to your environment (Eg: is it made from Plastic or Steel?)
  • Filter cleaning: Does the filter cleaning system really work in your application?
  • What will be my filter, maintenance and energy costs per year?
  • Are there any tertiary risks such as fire, explosion, etc, that I need to consider?

Dust & Fume Filters - Per Work Station
Per Station Dust Collectors such as these are ideal for 'Cell Based' manufacturing and work stations. Most of these solutions are based upon self-cleaning filter cleaning systems to reduce filter costs.Water based systems are also available for certain explosive and flammable applications

Some important points to consider when purchasing:
  • What is the Total Flow Rate? (How many CFM's are needed to capture the contaminants)
  • What is the exact resistance (filter and capture device losses) required for the fan to overcome?
  • Do I have enough filter media in the collector?(Air to cloth ratio)
  • Will it stand up to your environment (Eg: is it made from Plastic or Steel?)
  • Filter cleaning: Does the filter cleaning system really work in your application?
  • What will be my filter, maintenance and energy costs per year?
  • Are there any tertiary risks such as fire, explosion, etc, that I need to consider?

  • Mist Collectors
    Mist Collectors are for a variety of mist producing applications such as: CNC Machining and Coldheading Applications. These filters are "SELF-DRAINING" and it is important that the amount of dust being captured by these systems does not exceed more than 5% of the total extracted pollutant. If the dust quantity is kept to a minimum, filter life can be expected between 1 and 5 years depending on the application and runtime. Here are some general design velocities when using "CAPTURE" Hoods: Mist:
  • Capture Velocity 100 FPM
  • Transport Velocity 2250 FPM
  • Minimum Face Velocity 1766 FPM
  • Here are some general design velocities when using "ENCLOSING" Hoods: Mist CNC:
  • Minimum Face Velocity 75 FPM
  • Transport Velocity 2250 FPM
