If you have a small shop and need to reduce dust, smoke or other airborne particles in your environment, a portable dust collector may be the perfect solution for you.
These small dust collectors are easy to move from one workstation to another and are often used as a mobile dust extractor for multiple tools at the same time. They are also a great alternative to central dust collector systems that can be installed in an outdoor location.
If your shop consists of multiple machines or if you work in an environment where fugitive dust is a problem, you need a portable dust collector. It can be moved to different areas of your shop to clean up messes.
There are different kinds of dust collectors available, but they all use a fan to blow air into a cartridge filter where the dust is collected and released. They are often powered by an electric motor, but smaller models may be battery operated.
Some are wet scrubbers that spray water to remove a large amount of dust particles from the air. They are often used in a wide variety of applications that require high amounts of dust collection, including welders and grinders.
These systems have a number of benefits over other types of systems, but it is important to understand the specific application before investing in a unit. Choosing the right system will help ensure less down time, greater production, and improved safety.
If you’re looking for an efficient way to keep your work space clean and free from debris, a portable dust collector is the best solution. They can be easily moved from machine to machine and are a great alternative to having to install long runs of rigid ductwork.
Portable dust collection systems are available in a variety of sizes, with different cfm capacities to suit a variety of applications. They also vary in their ducting capabilities.
They can be configured with either HEPA, dust bags, pleated barrier style or activated carbon filtration. They are often used to capture hazardous fumes or dust from cutting tables (plasma, laser, router), robotic weld cells, grinders and saws, as well as combustible fumes from welding operations.
They are also available in a variety of designs, including shaker dust collectors, reverse air dust collectors and jet dust collectors. They all use pulses of air to shake a fabric bag filter free of dirt.
Easy to Operate
A dust collector that can be moved easily from one workstation to another is a great investment for professionals. This gives them the option to adjust the work environment at the job site, ensuring that air quality is as clean as possible.
Portable dust collectors are available in a variety of sizes to fit any workspace. They are also very lightweight and easy to carry when transporting from one place to the next.
The air velocity and air volume of a portable dust collector should be high enough to move a sizable amount of contaminated air quickly. This can be measured in feet per minute (fpm) or cubic feet per minute (cfm).
Easy to Clean
A dust collector is the ideal solution to keep your workspace clean and pristine. It helps you to avoid the mess created during the cutting, sanding and grinding of your workpiece.
Besides, the dust collection system also removes airborne contaminants that can be harmful for the environment and affect your respiratory health. This also increases productivity in your workshop.
Portable dust collectors are self-contained units that minimize air particle contamination in workshops, plants and manufacturing facilities by drawing in contaminated air at the source and filtering it.
To make the cleaning process easy, these collectors are designed to have a high bag volume capacity. This allows you to clean the entire area quickly without worrying about running out of the bucket.
