Belfab NBM Dust collector safety options -
This BELFAB NBM dust collector with top mounted safety options was installed at Virginia Tech University´s woodworking shop.

The university required a central dust collection system to replace their old outdated collector. The old collector was undersized and no longer performing well.

The university decided on a Belfab NBM dust collector. This model of dust collector utilizes a mechanical shaker to clean the filter bags. The dust is collected on the side of the bags during operation. When the collector shuts down, the bags are shaken clean.

Virgina Tech Belfab NBM installationThis model of dust collector from BELFAB is a good option for small wood working shops that do not tend to run their process for long hours, since the collector must be stopped to be cleaned. This is a good economical solution for a small low production process in the woodworking industry.

The clean air from the discharge of the dust collector is being returned to the building. An abort gate was put in the return airline to satisfy the National Fire Protection Agency code and prevents fire from being spread inside the building in the event of a fire or an explosion.

The filter is equipped with tilt cart dust containers. These can be lifted with a fork lift and dumped into a dumpster, making dust disposal easy. 

This unit was supplied through our dealer Stiles Machinery. Read more about our models of closed dust collectors here.

Pyradia celebrates 40 years of success


Last Friday Pyradia´s employees gathered at the newly renovated La Magia restaurant, in Longueuil, for Christmas festivities to celebrate not only 40 years of success but also what will probably be the best year in the history of the company so far.


Pyradia was founded in 1973 initially conceiving and manufacturing industrial ovens & furnaces, slowly becoming a specialist in aluminum heat treating equipment (drop bottom ovens), delivering highly efficient and tailored-engineered machinery to the aerospace industry.


Pyradia Inc manufacturing facility Longueuil


While developing new design and approaching new processes in the field of heat treatment, the company added an air filtration & ventilation capability with the acquisition of Belfab, a manufacturer of dust collectors and downdraft tables for the woodworking industry. This new venture was completed by the conception of a highly innovative and patented modular dust collection unit.


Always looking out for new opportunities, at the time already equipped with a highly qualified and creative engineering team, Pyradia started in the 90s to manufacture custom drying equipment slowly entering the web converting industry. Responding successfully to more challenging demands, often related to new manufacturing processes, Pyradia added new products to its web converting equipment range (web coating, laminating, web drying, calendering, winding and web handling) gaining expertise in the conception, optimisation and fabrication of tailored engineered systems for the roll-to-roll (R2R) industry.


Helen Keller – an inspirational American author – said “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”. No business could become that successful without the skills and commitment from the people working for it. Pyradia is no exception and attempts to continuously recognize the work achieved by all, highlighting milestones at their end of year gathering.  This year Pyradia especially acknowledged Louise Savoie (25 years with the company), Pierre D´Ambroise (20 years), Ian Deslauriers, Denis Gauthier and Carl Martel (10 years).


All divisions – Industrial Ovens, Web Converting and Belfab Dust Collectors – will continue to work hard for the remaining few weeks toward an even more successful 2014.

Pyradia strengthens relationships with Aerospace industry players


aerospace industryWe mentioned recently our new profile on the OMX platform, an initiative put in place to offer and develop further our capabilities to key players of the aerospace industry across Canada.


Although 40 years of business means our network is already well developed especially locally, we are always delighted when we manage to team up with new companies in this field.

This is why we are delighted to have recently received an order for a walk-in oven from a Quebec manufacturer of high precision parts for the aerospace and aeronautics industry. The 84” x 72 x 72”, operating at 650°F and rated AMS 2750E will be used for curing high quality parts.


Backed by more than 40 years of experience in oven design, Pyradia Walk-in industrial ovens are carefully engineered and manufactured to provide exceptional temperature uniformity and dependability under the most severe conditions

Our unique air distribution system with mixed-horizontal ventilation pattern propels the air transversely across the door opening, acting as an air curtain. The air is then forced horizontally from the front of the oven to the back, fully and evenly surrounding the load. All our ovens can be adjusted to meet or exceed the tightest military and aeronautic specifications to ± 5°F (3°C) when required.

What you should know when purchasing a dust collector


A few weeks ago, we mentioned to you the importance of understanding to what level your supplier of wood dust collecting equipment complies with the regulations in place – NFPA being the reference in North America.


Dust collectors installation, regulationsIt is also crucial to understand that the manufacturer of dust collectors is responsible solely for the compliance of its equipment. Where and how a dust collecting system is installed in your factory or workshop is equally important and above all your responsibility.


BELFAB open-type dust collectors are designed to comply with NFPA 664 regulations permitting indoor installation of adequately designed open-type wood dust collection systems that produce a maximum of 5000cfm and to which no mechanically fed machines, such as abrasive sanders and moulders, are installed.


We strongly advise you to consult NFPA regulations for more details as well as your federal, state and local authorities to verify all the governing codes and regulations in place in your locality before purchasing, installing and operating a dust collector in your facilities.


Although our product managers will not be able to tell you what regulations to follow concerning installation, please do hesitate to ask for advice when contacting BELFAB for your next project.

For the 3rd consecutive year, the dust collecting systems division of Pyradia  - Belfab – is showing a turnover growth from the previous year close to 20% by the end of Q2.

By the end of June 2013, yearly revenues are up 25% from last month and over 3 times more enquiries were quoted so far this year.

This success is due to a fantastic effort from the Belfab sales and production teams in answering incoming queries efficiently as well as a great support from all our distributors in North America.

The most popular models from our range, which contributed to this growth, are stand alone and modular open dust collectors – the NBM-OP and JNBM-OP.


The BELFAB NBM-OP series is engineered as a compact and high efficiency collector solution. This design integrates BELFAB modular filter technology. This feature makes it possible to increase filtration surface cost effectively, with the introduction of additional filter modules. Read more.

The JNBM-OP model is an industrial small capacity dust collector system equipped with a 7.5 HP blower generating over 3500 CFM. This unit is generally recommended for applications involving one or two machines in a small shop environment or in larger facilities where there is a need for an industrial “stand alone solution”.
