Who Uses Dust Collectors?
The short answer to who uses dust collectors is: almost anyone in the manufacturing industry! Dust, fume, particle, and smoke collection systems are essential to the safety, and are required by law, in many facets of manufacturing and agriculture.
Virtually every form of manufacturing uses some type of dust collector in combination with the duct system of their facility. This includes dust, fume, particle, or smoke collection systems.
Dust Collection is required in a variety of welding applications. Commonly a Fume Arm is used at a single person work station.
When talking about dust collection, wood working is likely one of the first and most obvious segments of manufacturing to come to mind.
Fiberglass & Plastics
When manufacturing plastics and fiberglass, tiny fibers and debris are created. Also, when heating and refining aforementioned materials, smoke and fume collection methods are required.
Mining applications often times require a smaller, or more portable dust collection solution. This is due to blasting and drilling applications often taking place in cramped quarters.
Agricultural and Food Particle Collection
Dust collection is often required in the process of food manufacturing and refining, and agricultural industries. Below are a few applications where dust collection systems are used:
- Fruit and Nut Particle Collection
- Grain Particle Collection
- Spice Particle Collection
- Cereal Production
- Processed Food Production
- Flour, Starch, and Sugar Processing
- Egg Shell & Dust Collection
- Bread Product Production
Manufacturing, Food Processing, and Agriculture in almost every industry, requires some form of dust, particle, fume, and/or smoke collection system.
