Wet Collection Applications and Photos

1.

Aluminum Dust Collection

Wet downdraft tables safely collect aluminum grinding dust by drawing the dust directly into the water filter system and wetting it immediately. Adjustable table height is engineered into the custom downdraft table design.

Magnesium Downdraft Table

Wet collector downdraft table with 2 work stations, 2 crane slots; 12’ wide x 4’ deep with removable center divider. Used to collect magnesium in the aerospace industry. Unit has 15 HP motor producing 9000 CFM with regain air. Regain air brings 20% of the cleaned exhaust air to front of the table and blows it to the back of the table creating a push/pull system with velocities up to 800 FPM in the working zone.

Titanium Dust Containment Booth

Used to collect and contain titanium dust in the aerospace industry, dimensions are 28’ wide x 12.5’ high x 20’ deep. Booth's (5) modular 15 HP wet collectors generate 32,500 CFM. Front clean out allows back of the booth to be against a wall. About 20% of the cleaned exhaust air is brought to the front of the booth and then blown to the back, creating a push pull pattern. Extra dust tight florescent lighting added.

Aluminum Foundry

Wet Dust Collector 30HP, 11,500 CFM at 12” TSP used to collect aluminum dust generated by belts sanders in an aluminum foundry. The wet collector is installed inside the building and is ducted to 9 belt sanders and is fully compliant with NFPA codes. The starter for the motor/blower is interlock with the water level control system and each belt sander. Customer was previously using a Torit cartridge dust collector which was installed inside the building and was cited by OSHA. Instead of moving the dust collector outside and installing deflagration devices they replaced the cartridge dust collector with a wet collector.

Food Processing

Dust generated from food blending operation is collected by stainless steel wet dust collector providing 6000 CFM @ 14“ using a 25 HP motor. System has (2) custom hopper discharge collection hoods, (2) 8” diameter x 14’ long and (2) 4” diameter x 8’long stainless steel self supported articulating capture arms. The duct work is stainless steel clamp together design with clean out ports. The wet dust collector, source capture arms, hoods and duct work are cleaned daily without disassembly using hot water. The waste water is discharged into a floor drain from the discharge valve located on the bottom of the wet collector’s hopper.

Titanium Dust Downdraft Table

Dual downdraft table dust collector used to collect titanium dust generated in the manufacturing of spinal implants. Each tables working surface is 48” wide x 30” deep. The wet collector provides 3000 CFM with a 5 HP direct drive motor and electronic water level control. Each downdraft table has a non mar fiberglass grate working surface, clear plastic enclosure with dust tight florescent lights and regain air. Regain air brings 20% of the cleaned exhaust air to the front of the table and blows it to the back of the table creating a push/pull system with velocities up to 800 FPM in the working zone.

Aerospace Aluminum Grinding

Aerospace company selected a wet dust collector downdraft table for collecting aluminum grinding dust. This wet downdraft table is 12' long and 48" deep with center divider. There are two crane slots for loading parts on the table. This downdraft table uses a 15 HP motor which provides 9500 CFM. Optional regain air plenum was selected which brings 20% of the cleaned exhaust air to the top front of the table and then blows it to the back of the table creating a push/pull system with velocities up to 800 FPM in the working zone.

Titanium Sanding and Grinding Booth

Wet dust collector booth used for collecting titanium dust. The booth is 8’ wide x 7.5’ high x 8’ deep, (2) 10 HP motors providing 11,000 CFM. This custom booth has (2) 3” suction ports that are used to connect flex hose to belt sanders when in use in the booth. This booth utilizes regain air, allowing 25% of the exhausted cleaned air to be ducted to the front of the booth. The regain distribution header then directs the air to the back of the booth, producing velocities of 400-800 fpm in the working zones. The booth was custom painted per customer specifications.
