High volume, low pressure
Whether you are in the manufacturing, mining, or energy industries, a portable dust collector can be a great asset for capturing and removing process-generated dust. However, you need to consider many factors when selecting a unit to ensure that you are getting the most efficient and cost-effective equipment.
There are many different types of portable dust collectors on the market. Some are more powerful than others. The size of your facility, the type of dust that you handle, and the types of operations you perform will help determine the most cost-effective unit for you. If you are in a large commercial shop, it is important to choose a large, powerful unit that can handle the volume of air that your operations require. You can also choose a smaller unit that will allow you to more easily capture and filter dust.
A high volume, low pressure (LVHP) portable dust collector can help you get the most out of your operations. The air flow will be higher, which means that you’ll be able to move more air with less pressure. These units are also known as hi-vac systems. They have the ability to move up to 10,000 CFM of air. These units are also available in ATEX-approved models. They include specially dimensioned ductwork and air movement devices. They are also designed to comply with COSHH regulations.
High volume, low pressure portable dust collectors can be connected to a range of tools. They can also be used for ambient air filtration. These systems can help to capture fine dust before it is launched, reducing the amount of dust that is launched into the environment.
In addition, these units are easy to move around from machine to machine. They can be attached to a short, flexible hose and then connected to a tool’s dust collection port. These collectors are also inexpensive and simple to set up. You can also choose to have a portable unit with a built-in exhaust hood to capture and remove dust from the air. This is a great option if you have a dust collection port on your tools and aren’t interested in having to clean the tool. You can also choose to have a direct connection to the tool. You can also choose to have an articulated arm or a direct connection.
Another option is a reverse air baghouse. These systems have a blower that blows air into a bag. This style of collector is more suitable for fibrous dust. These collectors are also a cost-effective alternative to a unit collector. They can also help to save you money on compressed air. These collectors are usually used in the minerals processing industry.
When choosing a portable dust collector, you’ll want to select one that will work best for the type of dust that you collect. For example, you can use a unit collector for portable dust-producing operations, while you’ll use a high volume, low pressure system if you have a large commercial shop.
High volume, low pressure systems are also used in source capture systems. These systems are a great solution if you have a large amount of dust to collect. A low pressure system will be able to move the air more efficiently than a high pressure system, which allows you to capture more dust.
