Manufacturers in the industrial machinery and equipment sector design, produce, and assemble a wide variety of products—ranging from small-scale machinery to industrial components and tools—for industrial applications.
Examples of manual and powered products manufactured include:
- Tools and fabrication equipment, such as power saws, drills, hand tools, metal-working machines, polishing machines, presses, boilers, industrial ovens, and industrial scales;
- Parts and hardware, such as springs, nuts and bolts, screws, valves, and pneumatic hoses; and
- Facility equipment, such as industrial heaters, furnaces, vacuum cleaners, carts, and forklifts.
Industrial equipment manufacturing involves several metalworking processes including:
- Metal forming
Industrial Equipment and Dust Collection
Each phase of the manufacturing process presents unique dust control challenges. Common challenges include explosive dust, moisture, oils and resins, and recycling of collected material. To address these challenges, US Air Filtration can design and fabricate full service dust collection systems for each production area that requires ventilation.
It’s important to consider the dust properties and dust load created during each production stage. This will determine the type of dust collector needed, along with size, ducting, and filter media requirements. For example the process of welding generates very fine, fume dust that requires high efficiency filtration. In this case, a compact, cost efficient cartridge dust collector with high efficiency filters may be the best solution to adequately capture, and remove dust particulate. Conversely, the process of metal forming and casting generates high temperature dust particulate that requires a much larger baghouse dust collection system.
Our engineering team can help you design a turnkey, dust collection system and identify the right type of dust collector, filter media, and air to cloth ratio to handle your dust load. We have designed, fabricated and installed both large scale systems for foundries and metalworking applications and modular, compact systems for welding booths. Here are a few examples of industrial equipment manufacturing applications we’ve built dust collection systems for:
- Mining equipment
- Construction vehicles
- Manufacturing equipment
- Agricultural machinery and equipment
Many of our cartridge dust collector units are available in stock and are available through our online product catalog.
